Gosh, PETE: Today U R 75: Friday, October 19, 2012. You know what that means: When UR birthday lands on a Friday, U can celebrate the entire weekend long.
I remember when U were 33. I just turned 60 on August 9TH & U’ve always been 15 years my senior. I just had 2 drop in 2 wish U the Happiest Birthday yet & 2 thank U 4 coloring our World as pretty as U have 4 prob. the last 60 of those years….if not longer!
Do U recall in 1994 when I (as ‘America’s Premier Eventologist’ via Insight Magazine of Wash, DC) created PAINT PRETTY DAY ©1994 in your honor? I still get press on that Holidate! Actually, now @ MY Age what I did was ‘celebrate 60 days B-4 my Birthday + 60 Days after. After all, every Day is an event even if we weren’t born on that Day! Hey, we all have a philosophy 2 live by – that’s mine!
Lots has changed since then – what’s really cool is 2 B able 2 stay in touch so much better with our ff: favorite folks via email, the Internet, FB, Twitter & all those other social networks w/o having 2 Q (ie: cue) up @ the Post Office or spend a cent!
One of my favorite Things that I do is 2 tell my friends who R having Birthdays, the following according 2 their latest & greatest birthday and that is in your p-ART-icular case since U R 75 years young today that:
You have blinked this many times: 373,950,428
You have breathed this many times: 451,496,073
You have eaten this many meals: 83,000 (calories not configured into this figure)
You have slept this many hours: 225,817
You have slept this many days: 9409 **
What irks me now (that I am 60) is that we sleep about 1/3 of our lives away. Oh, yes, I know we need the R&R: REST & RELAXATION, but just think of all the more paintings U could do + HOLIDATES I could create, if sleeping was not a necessity!
And on that note, I wish U the HAPPIEST of BIRTHDAYS, Mr. Max and ‘paint pretty.’ The best is yet to come!
