Yesterday, I turned 35. My son sent me an email card that said "you're old." At least my brother didn't call me this year pretending to be an AARP rep. He did that last year. He thinks he's cute...but he's 10 years older!!!

I'm not bummed about it or anything, but I do have a memory going through my head of when the mom on "One Day at a Time" turned 35. "You're not middle-aged, Mom" Barbara said. "You're only 35. Why I was just reading the other day that the average woman lives to be 70."

I think I'm going to go get back on my email and listen to the card that my son sent me saying "You're OLD"

geeesh...I'm young! Posted by Picasa

Happy Birthday to you!!

35 is not old. I recently got my first piece of junk mail from AARP, and boy was I excited! Only 3 more years.....I can start getting discounts for surviving. ;)

Yes, you are young.

Some of us will always be older than you and WE are young. :)

Happy birthday!

When my dad turned 55 he got his Golden Buckeye card from the state of Ohio. He called me to tell me he got his "geezer credentials" and we had a good laugh.

Now he can go to museums and state parks and pay "senior" admission.
