Today is my sister J.’s birthday. J. is the one after me in birth order, and we are alike in a lot of ways. She always has fun, and I remember a certain dance at UMO! Anyway, Happy Birthday, Janey-doodles!
Saturday will be the birthday of the twins, DC and DB. This is a biggie for them — 50 years old. When that birthday arrives, more than half of my siblings will be over 50! Happy Birthday, DC! Happy Birthday, DB!
I hope for all of you a year full of peace and joy and satisfaction. Welcome to the rest of your lives!
(Many thanks to the Beatles for both of these versions — I can’t make out who they are singing to in the first one, but it still sounds great!)
