I’ve received e-greetings from Busch Gardens, my auto insurer, my bank, and my Alumni Association:
Every time I open my e-mail, another greeting awaits . . . reminding me that I’m a year older and not a whole lot wiser.
Putting a positive spin on things . . . I’m still far too young to receive a Birthday Greeting from The President!

Prompted by today’s WP prompt, WP Daily Prompt ~ The Stat Connection, I just checked my top 3 posts. This post, the 2nd most popular post on SLTW, continues to be an all-time favorite. As of today, it’s garnered 7,013 views.
My birthday is 7-13! How cool is that!
I love the little wink from the Universe that prompted me to check it when I did. If I had checked it yesterday or waited until later today or tomorrow, I would not have seen the 7013.
