September 20

Well this is the day that comes around once a year that reminds me that I am not getting any younger.

1st Birthday Sept 20 1952

This photo was taken 60 years ago.

1960 nine years old Connie and Carey six years old

This one was taken in 1960.  52 years ago.  I was nine then.  I am not sure what my baby brother was doing with the BB Gun.  Maybe he was going to shoot the candles out on the cake. I am certain I did not get a BB Gun for my birthday.   Why?  Because I got a bike.

Birthday Bike 9 years old 1960

Yes, it was a boys bike.  I never learned to ride a girls bike.

I have my birthday off from work.  Far Guy has an appointment.  It will be a quiet day..perhaps I will have a nap:)

  7. Wishing you many happy and healthy returns of your day. A day off, a nap, maybe some good food...what more could a girl ask for?

  11. Cool boys bike. I never saw that many girls ride bikes with skirts on anyway so the bar being removed seemed silly. Enjoy the day, rest.

  14. Happy birthday, and riding a girl's bike is just the same as a boy's so I'm sure you could have done it. And still could :-) Jo
