Bastille Day and much more

This day is not only important to France and Francophiles, in my smaller world, it's my cousin's birthday also.

Many friends and relatives were born on similarly significant days. I wonder if others, like me, think such a high percentage unusual.

My birthday was just an ordinary day. But it still could become noteworthy.
Maybe in the future, it will mark the day we're able to view all the colors in the spectrum. Or fly under our own physical power. Or communicate telepathically.
Perhaps it will mark another occasion the whole world celebrates. (I already have a friend born January 1st).

Can you add an additional note to the day you were born? (Not that it isn't already special enough...)

Happy birthday, Jim.

"Frenchy" looks very much like the waiter I had in Paris who pinched my foot while he was under the table picking up the fork he dropped. Both yours and mine make me smile. Cheeky boys. xo

Oh I forgot to say, I like your new "about me" photo!

Thanks, Carole. It was time for an update. Hopefully making a comment is easier now, too. That was the main goal.

I was in Paris on Bastille Day 15 years ago, it was the day after France won the World Cup. I love Paris but on that day all I can say is that they sure know how to party. Your "frenchy" makes me want to sing..."When you wish upon a star....."

I don't think anything else could be as fabulous as YOU being born. You are an amazing artist and that's all that needs to mark the day! :)
(Sorry that I never got back to you about the comment thing, they changed the set-up on me and I never sat down to figure out the new stuff.)
Anyway...I will have to think what else I would like to happen to mark my birthday...probably something along the lines of the end of animal abuse. Now THAT would make me so HAPPY!!!
XOXO - Cindi
