Day 2589: 02/02/2020

Today is

  1. Groundhog Day,
  2. a palindrome date (the numbers are the same backwards and forwards), and
  3. my 67th birthday!

In 2018, I wrote a song titled “Shameless Appeals for Applause” which starts out

I’ve made it to age 65,

Nothing gets in the way of my passion and drive,

I was born with heart problems but I’m still alive.

I wonder if I need to rewrite that opening?  If so, not today.  Today I’m going to

  • watch if the groundhog sees his shadow.
  • think about the return of spring in the midst of winter.
  • spend the day with my eminently quotable husband Michael who recently said, “If you’re going to learn something, you have to not know it first.”
  • enjoy a new production of the musical “Hair.”
  • enjoy not having to color my hair.
  • get a free meal.
  • watch for this Super Bowl commercial, which mentions my hometown:

  • share my latest photos with you.

  1. Happy birthday. My 65th wasn’t as good a date as yours today, but it was 07.07.07

  2. and the super bowl, but that is small potatoes compared to your birthday, which is so much more exciting! – happy day to you and lucky you have such special date.

  3. Debbie T

    Happy birthday!

  4. Happy Birthday! Enjoy Hair the musical. I do love a good musical!

  5. Happy birthday, Ann. As they say in the old country, Sto Lat…”May you have 100 years”.

    The “I blinked once” card reminded me of this song by a Steve Forbert. https://youtu.be/ok8TjUU1ml8

  6. Here’s to your fantastic birthday, Ann! May it be super, for sure.

  7. Happy Birthday Ann. I specially like Michael’s quote: “If you’re going to learn something, you have to not know it first.”

  8. Happy birthday Ann! I hope it’s swell and that you enjoy the musical.

  9. Happy birthday on this Bishop Desmond Day!

  10. Happy Birthday Ann, wish you a beautiful day 😀

  11. Happy Birthday Ann, have a wonderful day!

    A very Happy Birthday to you, Ann! 🙂

  13. Lettuce all wish you a happy birthday, and enjoy the new production of Hair! Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it, here’s to another big day!

  14. Happy Palindromic Birthday, Madam! I loved your song, and that commercial was a hoot.

  15. I wish your parents could have watched that video of you singing, back when you were a little girl and they were looking for ways to keep you alive. They must have been so scared before your surgery. Happy birthday, Ann

    Happy Birthday

  17. 02022020 for me was so hot we felt like we were melting,
    I hope your birthday was everything you wanted it to be

  19. My parents were married on Ground Hog’s Day and my mom always laughed that she hadn’t known that when they chose the date. I am sure you have felt the love and best wishes, with cheers to a healthy and very special year. New marriage, good health, a happy birthday…it’s all quite wonderful! 🙂
