Today's my 51st birthday. Last year, I celebrated with my Mom, my sisters, my college roommate, and friends from work, since Jim threw a surprise 50th birthday party for me.
Today, I had warm greetings and hugs. And, I checked the newspaper to see who shared my birthday. I recognized Debbie Reynolds' name, and she's 76. Would you believe Ali MacGraw is 70? Country singer Jim Ed Brown is 74. I have no idea who any of the other people are - Gil Scott-Heron (jazz keyboardist), Annette O'Toole (actress), Bijou Phillips (actress). There are a couple other people I didn't recognize, but, then, they wouldn't recognize me either.
I do know who author Brad Meltzer is. The picture above is my husband, Jim, with Brad Meltzer. Brad is 38 today, and he posted on his MySpace page about his readers, the mushy ones. Happy birthday, Brad, from two mushy readers, one of whom shares the day with you.
