February 15th Susan B. Anthony
February 21st Erma Bombeck
February 22nd Drew Barrymore
February 26th Betty Hutton
February 29th Dinah Shore


These are just a few of the ones that I just picked out!! If interested go to the website..kind of interesting..Course more for me because it is my birthday month...



It is a dreary day here today but rain is on its way!! I just got my exercise over for today and boy did I do well. These past few days i have achieved 100% of my exercise and worked off 314 calories in that 30 minutes..Boy I must be getting stronger and stronger for some reason..been eating a lot of those little sweet clementines..they are wonderful..maybe they make you stronger!! ha!! New research!!


Went to a nice baby shower yesterday for the sweet little lady that does my nails..She is from Vietnam...you know I have learned so much of their culture..so different from mine of course. She named her first daughter, Alex...her second son, Alexander; and now she is having another daughter and yes you are right..it will be Alexsandra!! I tried to tell her way back that there are so many great names out there why are you stuck on this name? She would say that when she calls them all she has to say is one name...but now I see she is calling the first two girl and boy..Who would want to be called that? I think that they are going to have a BIG problem once they all get in school...Wonder what will happen then? Hm!! Hope I am around to find out!


Oh, I want to say that in my last post about..."I'm not dead yet"...i was not being depressed or upset just stating the way that i was feeling!! I am as happy as I usually am. Just had that on my mind and wanted to spout off a little..After all what are blogs for but to put out there how you feel about things...Right?


FLIP FLOP
Thought for the day: "You know you are over 50 when your knees buckle but your belt won't!!" (This one is from my mother)

Ha, I love the thought for the day. Sounds to me to be so true.

You did a good job researching February birthdays. I would never have thought to do that. You will have to remind us later in the month that you are having a birthday.

Have a good week, Sandy.

Wow! February is packed with with birthdays.

Those children will survive... it may be difficult at times. They will probably take on nicknames as time goes on.

No rain here yet... just a dreary sky.

Love the thought for the day :-)

Hello dear Sandy:-)

So many great people having birthdays this month, you included!! I see Red Buttons on the list...gosh, I so loved him when he used to have his show. It will be a sad birthday for John Travolta since he just lost his son.

Good for you for keeping up at Curves and doing so well with your exercises. Hmmmm...maybe I should go buy some of those clementines as well! lol

It is indeed strange for your nail lady to name all her children Alex! lol As you say, it could turn out to be very confusing!!

It's very cold here but sunny...just went out to run some errands and now thawing out with a nice cup of hot coffee:-) xoxo

Wow, so many birthdays is right... The is a cute but almost pathetic saying from your mom... ha!

It is a gloomy day here so just hoping the sun comes out soon.

Have a great week!

You certainly are in good company aren't ya?!

Dennis and Krysti were EVER so hopeful that we were going to get more snow tomorrow - and that it would be bigger than last week. BUT... it appears that our snow has all but been cancelled. I'll tell ya - I am READY for SPRING!!!

Deanna said...

Well, I'll go ahead and wish you a Happy Birthday now! For us I can hardly believe we'll be here in Savannah for a year already. We drove up on the 29th last year!

Your nail lady is like George Foreman who named all of his sons George. Teachers smile on the outside but not on the inside with stuff like this!

February is a good month for birthdays because May and June are good months for smooching!
