May 4, 1965

Yep, today is the day! It's my birthday! Let me do the math for you...2010 - 1965 = 45 years. Already? Whatever happened to 42, 43, 44? Time flies when you least expect it!

This is me, 40 years ago sitting on the steps at the back kitchen door on our family farm (How do I know for sure? I counted the candles!) Come to think of it, Mom took pretty much every photo there of us kids whether it was someones birthday or graduation. I recall this cake (does that surprise you!!). It was chocolate with these pretty little pink and yellow flowers. As you can tell from the picture, I was a "proud owner"! A store bought cake! Imagine! I think Mom was busy working in the fields along with Dad. Now, fast forward 40 years later. I would never have believed that I would be sitting at my computer "blogging" about this event. Computer? Blog? A lot has happened in 40 years!
