Eligible for socialized retirement benefits in one year. Good thing there's not means testing, yet.

And now we are 61. Happy Birthday. Going to slide down a hill? (Over-the-hill allusions unintended, truly!)

List-a-Beefy said...

A special List-A-Beefy Top ten list:

January 6, 1951
1 The Tennessee Waltz – Patti Page
2 The Thing – Phil Harris
3 My Heart Cries for You – Guy Mitchell & Mitch Miller
4 Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer – Gene Autry
5 Harbor Lights – Sammy Kaye
6 Be My Love – Mario Lanza
7 Frosty the Snowman – Gene Autry
8 A Bushel and a Peck – Betty Hutton & Perry Como
8 Thinking of You – Eddie Fisher & Hugo Winterhalter
10 Thinking of You – Don Cherry
10 Christmas in Killarney – Dennis Day

Patti Page's Tennessee Waltz reminds why I'm glad that rock booted old "too close to the mic" pop. The Como is good (as expected) in his laid back way and the Autry certainly lasted (though that's a lot of holiday holdover). But that darned Phil Harris song is so weird and not funny but also not "not interesting". What could the Thing be? I just don't know. And it wouldn't be BEP (Before Elvis Presley) if there weren't at least two version of one song. This time pro golfer Don Cherry and heartthrob Fisher split Thinking of You.

Happy birthday

Happy birthday! Be proud of the year past, and ambitious for the year to come.

Thursday birthdays are the best - four day weekend here we come!

Being elderly doesn't suck nearly so much as one is led to believe. Enjoy the rest.

Happy birthday, Althouse. As your attorney and physician, I advise you to get at least lightly tipsy, if not thoroughly drunk. But for God's sake, leave the ether alone.

But boy, if there was a list of Beatles songs I never want to hear again, "Birthday" is right near the top. . .

I believe it's Rush Limbaugh's birthday, too, and he was born the same year you were - 1951.

Louis said...

Happy Ann-iversary!

Suggest you find a good movie at a theater and request the "senior discount" rate for your ticket! Tinker-Tailor-Spy is fun.

Happy Birthday, Ann. My daughter Lauren celebrates her 32nd today, so we'll drink a toast tonight to all the 1/12ers.

But that darned Phil Harris song is so weird and not funny but also not "not interesting". What could the Thing be?

The Thing was a 1951 horror movie very popular in the day. James Arness of Gunsmoke fame played his first role "The Thing", a monster who never spoke a word.

Dan said...

No birthday greeting from Garage? You should feel relieved...Happy Birthday Ms. Althouse!

Happy Birthday, Ann. I'm not sure how to celebrate. I think I'll buy some white lithium grease at Amazon. As good a way as any.
