Gonna be 18 'til I die!

My lovely fiance serenaded me this morning, with a big (and mischievious) smile on his face... These are the words he sang to me, courtesy of Paul Simon:

The first time I heard "Peggy Sue"
I was 12 years old
Russians up in rocket ships
and the war was cold
now many wars have come and gone
Genocide still goes on
Buddy Holly still goes on
but his catalog was sold

First time I smoked
guess what - paranoid
First time I heard "Satisfaction"
I was young and unemployed
Down the decades every year
Summer leaves and my birthday's here
And all my friends stand up and cheer
And say man you're old
Getting old, Old, Getting old

We celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas day
And Buddha found Nirvana along the Lotus Way
About 1,500 years ago the messenger Mohammed spoke
And his wisdom like a river flowed
Through hills of gold
Wisdom is old
The Koran is old
The Bible is old
Greatest story ever told

Work 'em out

The human race walked the Earth for 2.7 million
And we estimate the universe about 13-14 billion
When all these numbers tumble into your imagination
Consider that the Lord was there before creation
God is old, We're not old, God is old
He made the mold

It was so sweet. I have been well spoiled today. My wonderful daughter even made me coffee this morning (and I didn't know she knew how to operate the coffee machine) and despite some trepidation it was actually quite good! I had to get up very early (hockey Mom) with my darling son and the very first thing he said to me was "happy birthday Mommy." I went back to bed after he left and woke up with presents on my bed. We just finished birthday brunch and now I can play with my presents before Sushi tonght!

Happy Birthday to Me! I am the happiest woman in the world!
