It has been a lovely Thanksgiving holiday and birthday for me. Yes, my birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year, and every year it is the day John F. Kennedy was shot. Today I am 55, speed limit year, as a friend of mine said, or as I like to say, I have two nickels to rub together. Did you hope I had something profound and meaningful to say about the day or my age? How long have you been reading this blog?
I thought I would throw in a random picture to liven thing up. It is, after all, Non-Sequitur Thursday. Who doesn’t love Frankenstein’s monster? If it is you, you might like to find another blog to read, because he is one of my favorites and makes frequent appearances in my posts.
And I just remembered it is the unofficial start of the Christmas season (but let us not embark upon a discussion how early that stuff goes up in stores. Not on my birthday, at least). I ADORE Boris Karloff. I like Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, but I greatly prefer to hear Karloff’s real voice. So soothing! So mellifluous! I wonder if I can talk Steven into watching Bedlam or Island of the Dead tonight (just to mention the first two that occur to me that I know we have).
Getting back to the non-sequitur portion of the day, I include this picture that Steven shared to Facebook this morning. I do not publish my birth date on my Facebook page, but my dear husband will not allow me to fly under the radar thusly. He posted a status wishing me happy then later shared this picture with more well wishes. I was not especially upset, because one could do a lot worse than get a bunch of well wishes one was not expecting. Dare I say I am thankful for all the love?
In any case, Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Thursday, and thank you for tuning in. Now I have some Boris Karloff movies (or something) to watch.
