Yeah...today is/was my 64th birthday! I got a card and a phone call from one sister, and a card and no phone call from the other sister. I gorged myself on chocolate, hot drinks and a weepie movie, which was kinda nice. ("Playing With Fire.") I've lined another weepie up for my 2nd, tonight!

It would have been even nicer if I lived a normal life, in a normal world, but this virus?...it's going to change everything, now. Normal is being upgraded and it takes a few years to discover that we have a new normal to live by.

If I were normal and socialised, I'd've got more than 1 birthday call and lots more than 2 cards. The really odd part is that I quarantine everything that comes into my house, so those two cards were not in the TV room...they were in the weights room, instead, standing up, smiled about and appreciated! A crazy Covid world!

So, here's hoping I'll be able to make my 65th birthday a touch more animated and populated.

This post, a few minutes ago, was full of self-pity and moaning, but I decided to do some delete surgery on it, instead, and make it what it now is! 👀

Thanks for your replies, guys and gals! My 2nd choice of film was "Little Monsters", with the ever-gorgeous Lupita N'Yongo in it...<heart skips beat, here, on schedule>! Any film with her in it will cheer me up! I'm so superficial, I'm almost shallow! But...WOW! :)

Hey Ian! Today's my birthday, too! I turned 63. I got a card from my wife and one from my dog. I'm suspicious about the one from my dog, though. :)

I haven't had any contact with my psycho sister in over 15 years and don't have any other relatives or friends, so that was it for me.

I did get some nice gifts and a chocolate cake that will probably give me diabetes, but it will be worth it.

Anyway, happy birthday! :)

Happy birthday to you @Ian Haines & @irwin!

I hope next year our lives won't be so focused on maintaining like we are, due to the pandemic. Maybe we will have a year of world celebration?
I'm glad you both did something nice for yourselves to mark the occasion. You deserve some peace and joy.
