The song isn't really all that true

Today is my birthday. It's been my experience that it is not, as the Beatles song (Renee--you are right--it is the Rolling Stones) says, a drag getting old--at least not all the time. I have had two glorious days of celebrating with tomorrow to go yet!

Yesterday Paulette and I went to Iris Fine Yarns where she bought me this:



It's Sublime soya cotton, and it's yummy soft.I am going to make a tank top out the the 7 skeins of it.

Then we went to Summerfest and saw John Mellencamp:





Today we went to the antique mall, because I figured there was a lot of stuff there that was older than me.



I found some Blue Ridge pottery there (we have a large collection on the dining room walls):

















And some postcards:



This one is of the old Woolen Mill in Sheboygan Falls.
Paulette also bought me this for my birthday:

A 32" HDTV. I love it!
Can't wait for tomorrow!
