On This Day...

Emily Bronte was born.

Other events that happened on this day include the founding of Baltimore, Maryland.

The New York Times headlines for this day. Hey, this was the day that the USS Indianapolis was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. (Yes, the shark one.)

And I was born! The Big 4.0.

I'm enjoying cake. I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

The 4.0's are great, I had pictured you as someone in her late 20's so I was quite surprised. Enjoy!

Happy (belated) B'day! Forty, Fifty, Sixty, no matter. You are young at heart, without a doubt.

Happy birthday, Liz!

(people are surprised when I tell them my age, too - lots of library patrons seem to think I'm the teen intern)

Wow. Amazing, My friend Ian in Scotland shares your b-day, down to the year.

Happy, happy birthday, Liz! You don't look a day over 29. (No, seriously, I never would have guessed 40.)

Liz B said...

Thank you all!! And if I didn't have people like Christine M. around, who have known me since I was ten, I would lie thru my teeth. Queen Lucy, my niece, totally thinks I'm 26.

Chris said...

Hey, Liz! Belated Happy Birthday To You! (So far the 40's don't suck too much.)

Ack - in the middle of all my own messes you went and had a birthday. I hope it was fantabulous! Just to show my support, I promise to go eat some chocolate.
