Birthday Prediction


My dad sent me this in my birthday card. It is a cutout from a newspaper that my grandmother put in her 'birthday book' the day I was born. A native of Massachusetts, she passed away last year at the age of 93, having been alive for both times that the Red Sox won the World Series.

All I can say is - doo-doo-doo-doo (cue Twilight Zone music...)

Happy birthday! How spooky is that? And cool about your grandmere, seeing the Red Sox steal the World Series from the Cubs like that, twice. ;)

Other than the "scheming" part (my schemes tend to crash and burn), that's pretty darn accurate. I just re-started my guitar lessons after a one year hiatus. Kinda spooky...

I thought it was kinda spooky, too, QD. And my son said the same thing - "scheming? I dunno about that". Don't we all scheme to some extent? It's funny because the only other job I have had besides music is being a cartoonist and portrait artist at amusement parks - I have a 'flair' for art, and my dad is an artist, but it doesn't 'get' me the way music does...

I forgot about that part of it, DJ...

Happy Birthday, my dear! May your future bring you health and happiness! Cancer's are wonderful people. My best friend is a Cancer - and there never was a more loving woman - as are all born under that sign. So three cheers, sweetie! Hip, hip hooray!

HB, Alicia! Mine was the 12th. I am a bit more elderly than you but who's counting?

Happy belated B-day fellow Cancers. Mine was 6/29. Have a crab cake.

Wow - it seems like half of my blog friends are Cancers! I'lll have to do a poll or something, if I can find out how to put one up...
