    Changing my birthday.............

    Yeah - mine is today, but I'm not posting this looking for greetings and well wishes. I'm just wondering why this always seems to be such a dark date.

    Oklahoma City Bombing - many deaths

    Waco Branch Dividian complex burned to the ground - many deaths

    Colombine H.S. Massacre on the 20th - many deaths

    One Boston Marathon bomber killed and a massive manhunt on for the other

    I'm beginning to think that 4/19 should be taken off the calendar!

    Have a safe day today, and hopefully tomorrow will be better. At least unlike me, you could leave the house to get cake! Thankfully, I do have groceries on hand, so could make cake if necessary! What's your favorite?

    Yeah - I know that area pretty well from years back. Just stay put - that kid could be anywhere - and he certainly has nothing to lose by taking out more people. So sad, since everyone interviewed speaks so well of him, and it appears he was roped in to all of this by his older brother. I don't think the real truth will ever be known tho......

    Ironically my favorite "cake" is Boston Creme Pie. If you feel like baking, I feel like eating!

    We third the motion! We are all raising a toast of catnip or whatever to you, Ellie.

    That's right. Just thought I'd sneak that in there. LOL.

    It is just that only the bad news makes the news & we rarely hear about the many good things that happen every day.
    I always check out the thread about the "good Guys" in General. Always perks me up to read about the good stuff in the world.

    Thanks everyone. I'm not usually this glum - just a bunch of other crap going on in my life too - but tomorrow is the 20th - the day after - and I won't have to worry about any more unpleasant events happening on my birthday, for at least another year!!!

    I've been keeping up with the events of the bombing and I'm still totally dumbfounded this could happen.

    It does seem like a lousy day for your birthday but you're the bright light at the end of the tunnel and it's never a bad day for your birthday, so chin up and enjoy the day. Wish I could bake you that cake... not sure how it would turn out, been ages since I made one of those.

    It could be worse, you could have been born on Feb 30?

    ------------

    Remember, it's YOUR day..........

    Everything outside of that shouldn't bother you.

    Happy YOUR birthDAY.

    Hey, now you can count your birthday as the day the bomber was caught! A victory of sorts in this whole horrible week.

    Sorry that I missed your birthday, Ellie. I hope that it was wonderfully blessed despite all the bad things that have happened on that date.
    Blessings,
    Mary
