I'm a star

I am usually not one to brag. At least not in any sort of public arena like this. This weekend brings some fun stuff for me.

Be a star

It's my birthday on Sunday.
The thirties are the best.
And I hear it just gets better.

And before my birthday arrives I get to have a little fun with some people that mean the world to me. A bunch of sports stars.

Back in high school I managed our baseball team. In 1994 we were Virginia State Champions. Well, this weekend we are all being inducted into our High School Sports Hall of Fame.

See, I am a star.

And we have not seen one another in a long time. We will be together tonight and tomorrow night and the memories are already flooding back. Good ones. Funny ones. The best ones.

What makes you a star? We all are, you know.

Ohhhhh...I remember the 30's. Vaguely. :) Happy Birthday, yesterday!
Actually, 70's is a pretty darned good decade too. No more dying my hair, worrying so much about weight, and I could go on and on!'s not bad hurry on your way and don't dread it one bit. I swear it's nice.
