Yes I know. That graphic is pretty annoying, but it’s my birthday and on most birthdays, especially as I get older, I feel like being annoying. Maybe you don’t get that—but just wait until you turn 58 and see how you feel.
One thing I’ve never done in my 58 years is research other people I share a birthday with. I didn’t spend hours doing it—maybe 10 minutes. That was enough.
So Happy Birthday to a few of us. This won’t take long.
I share a birthday with Calamity Jane. I think she was a singer. She was born in 1852. I’m assuming she’s dead.
Actor Glen Ford was born on May 1st. He doesn’t make many movies anymore. His death may have something to do with it.
Singer Kate Smith and talk show host Jack Paar are also dead, just so you know.
Actress Julie Benz is not dead, but I’ve never heard of her.
I share a birthday with folk singer Judy Collins. Once upon a time, I had a few of her albums but I’ll be damn if I know whatever happened to them.
Country singer Tim McGraw is another year older today. He’s married to another Country singer named Faith Hill. She would be nice to wake up to today—nice for Tim, not so much for me.
I have a friend named Rick who also was born on May 1st, so Happy Birthday, Rick! He’s younger than me as is most of my friends—not that I’m bitter.
OK—enough of this.
I know this post doesn’t amount to much, but it’s my birthday. Be nice and cut me some slack.
