I didn't have to buy my own birthday cake. The Ronald bought one for me! Plus helium balloons! 

Happy Birthday, also to my blog friend Rachel Cotterill.

  8. Happy Birthday to you! Maybe you can look at it as your 22nd thirty-ninth birthday. It worked for Jack Benny. Live it up with those balloons and the cake.
