So far, I haven't received any 60-watt light bulbs which is what I once gifted a friend with at his 60th birthday party.

Flannista

The image in this post is the front of a birthday card I received. The title is the precise sentiment printed inside.

Flannista

Can you all think of anything significant about the number "60"?

Flannista

A hand-made birthday card from frida:

I love it so.

An electronic card from a conservative, Calvinist theologian who heads TRM's foundation and, who, at my 25th anniversary celebration of working for TRM toasted my funeral:

This birthday sentiment, however true, I don't like so much, particularly that it was sent electronically.

Flannista

The word in the Code Thingy for my last comment was "delivered".

Bah-hum bug to conservative, Calvinist theology.

Flannista

Charlissta gave me a huge birthday balloon that the Catties are afraid of. It's been hovering over my reading chair the last two days like the Hindenburg:

The ribbon tethering it to the earth hangs over my head like the sword of Damocles.

Flannista

Took the Hindenburg outside, but it scared the birds:

Bet you all are jealous of this card I got from Liberace:

Love this very clever gift -- inside my bag of candy from my parents were 60 crisp new $1 bills; check out the serial numbers:

Remember Tracy, the nurse whose been injecting me with WD-40 for my knee the last three Tuesdays? I've really liked getting to know her and her story and left her cards, etc. Yesterday, she presented me when a pen that her husband (struggling with cancer) made. He works with acrylic. I was so touched:

Last Saturday night, Matissta took me to Jackie's, our favorite restaurant. When we arrived, Matissta told me that Sista C and Betterhalf had arranged to pay for our meal. WOW. Here is a photo of our bottle of wine, which the bartender discounted 50% because it was my 60th birthday. Notice the word in the label:

The entire evening was exquisite.

Last year for my birthday, treesta gifted me with an anthology of all the poetry posted in the sassosphere since it opened. This year, she gifted me with an addendum of all the poetry published in the 'sphere since last June.

WOW.

treesta

Well, good morning, Flann and a Happy Birthday to you, friend. You are gifting us most of all, as we 'hear' your voice in the 'sphere after your 'sabbatical'. I know you have a busy day today, but remember to enjoy the moments that make you smile today!!

nowayasista

And just what is 60? a multiple of 10 of 6 of 15 of 3 of 20 of 30 of 5 of 4 of 2 of 12 and 1. That's pretty awesome really. An intersection of all the variables in life's crazy equation. Keep going my good friend. There is a so much ahead.

Flannista

Thank you, treesta! And thanks for the sushi you brought over last night for Matissta and me. What a lovely time we had on my back deck.

Flannista

Check it out! Matissta gave me AN IPAD FOR MY 60TH!

Thank you my good friend, nowayasista. I thought of you when I opened this card:

Matissta

Happy Birthday, Flann! You're in better shape than most 40 year olds I know. Congratulations.

I love seeing the cards you've received. Truly shows off the givers' personality. All so different. I always thought that email cards should have a short video/movie to be worth sending. But I guess that's a personal perspective.

Flannista

This photograph does not do justice to the beautiful silver bracelet PEACEsista sent to me -- one of three very lovely gifts:

Flannista

noway, I just reread your 7:20 a.m. comment, and honestly, that is pretty awesome about the number 60. Thanks.

Flannista

The word in the Code Thingy for my last comment was: DOCTRINE

Seriously.

Flannista

Thank you, Matissta, for your 7:23 a.m. comment -- and also, for being around for the next few decades! What would I do without you?
