It's my birthday


I know it's Saturday and all but it's my birthday and it's long been my blogging tradition to post it here in a cheap, shameless and easy effort to garner birthday wishes.

And why not? Seriously?


Life is freaking miraculous. Truly.

Plus, at what other time will I have the chance to share this image of me from 1992, taken to honor my second Employee of the Month win at the American Collectors Association?

Life was simpler then. I hadn't yet heard of eyebrow care and I am fairly certain I was thinking: "Is it time for my smoke break?"

I'm off to enjoy the day. Here's to middle aged, people. 


Happy burfday - I mean Birthday! The years are just screaming by.

Joyeux anniversaire !

Happy Birthday Cathy! Today is a great day to celebrate you!

Happy Birthday!

Thanks for being you and happy birthday!
Hugs from Germany,

Happy birthday Cathy.

Wish you a wonderful day and many wonderful lovingful healthy sparkly and happy years :-D

Lang zal ze leven,
lang zal ze leven,
lang zal ze leven in de gloria!
Hiep, hiep, hier...Hoera!

Happy Birthday song in the Dutch language!(It goes something like this: Long shall she live, 3x. ). I found a youtube link with some of the other other Dutch birthday songs included too:

Happy birthday. Hope it's a fun day and a good year

Happy Birthday Cathy, you are amazing. I love your honesty and ability to reach all of us. You are a gift to us! Enjoy the week, it belongs to you!

Happy Birthday (belated) Cathy! Thanks for sharing yourself with us! You're a fabulous gal! You're just a few months younger than me and I love that you embrace and enjoy the birthday thing. I hate it. I don't enjoy people giving me birthday wishes. I try to let it pass by quietly. I wish I could be more like you. But then, I wish a lot of things about myself. ;D Hope you had a great day!

Paljon onnea vaan,
paljon onnea vaan,
paljon onnea, Cathy,
paljon onnea vaan!

That's Happy Birthday in Finnish!

And you are young - compared to me (I turn 60 this year, wow)!

Thanks for your sincere and great texts that I love to read!

Happy Birthday, CZ!!!!! Hope it was a blast!!!

Happy birthday!

Happy Belated Birthday Cathy! Hope it was a great one! And I'm not sure I'm buyin the whole 48 thing.... 38 maybe... 48? no way! :)
