It's My Birthday!

In honor of my birthday today, I'm going to get my annual mammogram. But in the evening there will be a party. My devoted niece sent me a wonderful greeting in which she quotes Helen Hayes: "Age is not important unless you're a cheese."

Is it a coincidence that Oma's first grandchild should be quoting Helen Hayes? Oma's favorite Hayes-ism was, "Old age is not for sissies," although perhaps that one did not originate with Helen.

Happy birthday!!! Bis hundert und zwanzich, dear Savta Dotty.

The second quote I believe is from Bette Davies, but I'm not sure.

Have fun tonight.

Happy birthday! And look at that - we're both Aries. Coincidence? Hmmm...

Thank you, thank you, thank you. The bad news is: one of my friends missed my party because she was taking a nap(!) The good news is: she felt so embarrassed and guilty that she's taking me out for sushi tomorrow. And I love sushi.
