When we were young, the big birthdays ended in a six, an eight and then, a one. After that, it's all just a blur of numbers.
Technically, EVERY birthday is a significant birthday but, oh you know what I'm saying....
The thing is, I am truly overwhelmed by the birthday wishes that were sent my way. There were a whole bunch of messages on Facebook, a few phone calls, some text messages and I am so deeply grateful for each and every note or thought that was sent my way.
Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
As for this, I don't know whether to be amused or frightened. Big brother is watching and I just have too much out there in cyberspace.
On the day of my birthday, I was looking for something on the internet. I turned to google and saw a doodle. It was clearly a birthday and I wondered who shared the 10th of November with me? I know about the Marines. That is one of those things I'll always remember because my dad made a habit of wishing me and the Marines a Happy Birthday. Every year.
Except, google didn't acknowledge the 238th birthday of the US Marines. And there were plenty who were not happy about it as reported in The Blaze.
The doodle on my google page was for me. I'm going to guess they have a fancy algorithm or something and pulled the info from my google profile ....
Personally, I DO think the Marines should have gotten the shout out .....
Still, this amused me because it's this little stuff that makes me laugh..... So, a big thanks to the crew at Google. It was a fun way to start the first day of the next year in my life.
