I was looking at some old photos recently and came across this one that I'm fairly sure I didn't post at the time. Do you remember pictures like this when Danica was a baby? I sure posted a lot of them. Believe it or not, I have become much more moderate about posting grandkid pics in my older age.
To be precise, I took this one exactly five years ago today. I know that because it was my birthday, (you see, despite my advancing years, I am able to remember that) which seems like a perfect segway into confessing that today is my birthday. The rumours are true, folks. I have finally achieved official senior citizen status. My first pension cheque will not arrive until next month, however, and I'm not sure how just that is. :)
Aging is an odd thing. Sometimes I feel like I'm 25 (well 45 anyway) and at other times I feel like I'm 85. At this precise moment, I feel somewhat youngish because I am sitting quietly and using my brain to post pictures and to type. As soon as I try to move, however, I will feel older. :)
Meanwhile, although you don't need much of a reminder after the spate of summer photos, here is the girl 5 years later. Not that it's terribly relevant to my birthday, but it somehow seems fitting to post it seeing how I began this post with a photo trip down memory lane.
