Hello and Welcome to 2013


No, I didn't welcome 2013 with an alcoholic drink, 
but I'm taking on Maxine's attitude for the year



because this is the year for 60th Birthdays


for myself and most of my school-age friends.


I just happen to be the one born the earliest in 1953,
and I'm happy to lead the way in Celebrating our Sixties!


The following song lyrics just popped into my head and I think they'll be my 2013 Theme Song because no matter what I do this year, especially pertaining to my writing or publishing, "I got to keep on moving"!


Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down, oh-no 
I got to keep on moving
Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride
I'm running and I won't touch ground 
Oh-no, I got to keep on moving
~~
Matthew Wilder



Please don't forget my Kickstarter Project ends on my birthday, January 6th. If you can help in any way, I'm very grateful.

  1. Maxine is a such a gem. And I am being blown away by the number of Capricorns I am finding. More than a twelth I swear.
    Perhaps our basic bentness calls to each other? You think?

  9. Why do I get the feeling that after that picture was snapped, you all rushed outside, revved up your Harleys, and tore out of the parking lot with gravel flying?

  12. I am also a 1953 baby, but not until September. Have a good one - I'm finding that it's not that bad getting older, as long as I get wiser. I guess that, in my case, is up for debate, but I like to think I've made progress.

  13. Happy Birthday, Becky! That's fun that your birthday also welcomes in the new year. I hope you have a stupendous birthday weekend!

    I remember that song! I'm glad you included the name of the singer, because I had forgotten. I love Maxine!

    I've got a few years and lots of gray hair on you,
    Hope your 60s are lots of fun.

  16. Ahhh, I turned the big 6-0 back in September! It's the new 40, I hear, so it's not so bad! haha

    Mine blogger still isn't letting me load photos. Maybe because I do it in "compose" mode instead of HTML mode? I don't know, but hopefully it will be fixed soon!

    Happy New Year!!!

  19. I am slowly dragging myself onward and upward, snagging those nasty chin hairs every time I sit down in front of my newly acquired super magnified makeup mirror. I think I may need one of those lightboxes. There's way more sun in Tucson this time of year.

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
