It’s my birthday today.
As my family and friends know, I’m not a big birthday guy. This has nothing to do with the annual reminder that more grains of sand in the hourglass have sifted south. Instead, it’s a byproduct of being a closet introvert.
I typically do a good job of sidestepping the concentration of hoopla.
But every once in while something happens on my birthday that’s a keeper.
Which brings me to my granddaughter, Addy Gates (who by the way delivered a performance as Count Dracula on Saturday that channeled the best of Rodney Dangerfield and Anthony Hopkins) .
She has a way with words.
And she absolutely does love joking around.
And yes, I do hope my life “keeps going on.”
