          Happy belated birthday, Lisa (and to you too Midge). This age thing - it's just a number (so what if it ends with a "0") - happens to the best of us. Or, as someone as alluded, you can just say you're now "thirty - ten"

              When I celebrated that "0" number, I just said to anyone wanting to know how old, "Just Twenty - again!" Just think, in two years, you'll celebrate being "Twenty-one - again." Now that I've hit that "Thirty - again" mark, I don't know if I'm ready for that "Forty - again" birthday. Might be great, but the body isn't cooperating.

              I now know of three great people with that Aug. 9 birthday. So hope it was a great celebration to Lisa, Midge and my daughter (in-law. Dislike that "in-law," as she became our daughter upon marriage,) Alecia.

                I am so sorry I missed out on posting on your birthday. Sorry I am late on wishing you a happy birthday. But the same good wishes and warm thoughts are there, even if I am late.

                Happy Birthday, Lisa!
