My daughter was the one to inform me that this year, I have the luckiest birthday ever. Why? Because my birthday is next month on July 7, and this is 2007. In other words, 07/07/07. Since it falls on a Saturday, which is one of the days a Powerball drawing takes place, perhaps I'd better make sure and buy a Powerball ticket on that day. Do you think?
I've had a good life so far, so I'd say my birthday has always been a lucky one. But if this year happens to be extra-lucky, I can live with that.
Speaking of lucky days, my anniversary is this coming Thursday... forty-one years. I've been married for about two-thirds of my life. Wow.
