Tomorrow Another Birthday...Mine!

On Sept. 30th, many, many Moons ago-I was born. I weighed a whopping 3lbs 12oz. and was premature before it became socially acceptable. I was described by my father as "Looking like a scrawny chicken with big feet". I got to spend my first month alive in an incubator, which as has encouraged me to describe my entering the world as "hatched" rather than born.. I got to start school at age 4 (another month and I would have had to wait a year!). Small for my age, and left handed to boot it never occured to me I might be at some disadvantage, as I was fast both in body and mind. I was also told later in life I had been a "suprise" or in other words unplanned. Probably explains why my older brother is 13yrs older than me!
I look back over the years with some wonderment as to where all that time went so quickly. I've done alot in my life, probably could or should have done more, but I'm not done yet! I plan to enjoy tomorrow by remembering I'm alive and still have some time to enjoy people, places, and moments yet to come....

Ake- It was a simple, yet tasty meal! Flounder is so thin and delicate, the lighter spicing really worked!
Steph- Not a laugh out loud fun day, but enjoyable!
Snow- I may speak like a pirate, but I look more like a catchers' mitt with eyeballs....
Odat- Thanks! I thought it was time for our story to have a hero- this might force one to step forward...
Amy- Thanks! Hope all is well with you!

Hey--I'll give you one guess as to who's daughter came home telling pirate jokes today.

My own flesh and blood even...

"Mom, what's a pirate's favorite letter?"

"Give up? Rrrrrrr!"

;)

Interesting you should mention being left-handed. I posted about left/right dominance just last week. I've had some interesting experiences with left-handed people!

Happy belated Birthday!

Excellent post on The Experiment. Mine is coming up.
