I was born January 18th 1953. I have lived 50 wonderful years. I need to lose 20 lbs, have a bit of Botox injected in the wrinkles, and rid myself of 15K of old credit card debt. In addition, a new man would be nice. Tonight I will stay warm and watch the Rolling Stones in concert on HBO. Low key to be sure but next month is the party. For the 2nd half of my wonderful life, I am going to try and pay off the debts I have run up in the last decades. No more fiscal follies! wild :)having a Happy Birthday, really!
Wild, Happy Birthday and many more. Always a pleasure reading your posts. I am just a few days behind you. Will be celebrating Wednesday.Mike
Happy Happy Birthday, Wild L!I'm really enjoying your posts and your contagious exuberance for life! Thanks for being here and sharing your exploits and adventures! The Fool is a better place for your being here!I love a girl who understands the proper and generous use of exclamation points!Sassy!ps - I'm glad you went for the haircut yesterday. Some of us girls (whether wild- or sassy-) need a wee bit of pampering from time to time, and a special birthday is a very good reason! Enjoy your day!pps - Don't do the Botox. Get the man and the wrinkles may disappear on their own!
Happy Birthday Wild!!!!!!have a bit of Botox injected in the wrinklesMy mom, @ 65, loves telling her women friends that the best way to get rid of wrinkles is to go braless! Must have gotten it in an email as she is not that free wheeling, but maybe that strategy might work for you. Never should you pay someone to inject you with poison! Have a good evening and try to keep the trailer toasty...it's freezing out!blue3dragon
Happy birthday Wild...Dinky and Killer and Psyche, my trio of wonderful and wiggly weasels, all wish you very happy returns :).Are you taking that trip to Florida you promised yourself? Gwen
Lots to pay off first.. but my youngest and I are talking about it maybe at the end of the year. We have never had any kind of time together to speak of.wild L :)
Happy Birthday, WILD!!!!Ishtar

Happy Birthday Sweetie. And a toast to the next 50 years, may you have your health, and good fortune. <whisper mode: and a new man>
was born January 18th 1953. I have lived 50 wonderful yearsAs was I...and I think one or two others on the board. To be precise, I was born at 11:11 PM on 1/18/53 so I still have about another hour of 49 left in me.Happy Birthday Wild, and to all the rest of us 18th babies. May 2003 find us (and everyone else) well on the way to debt freedom.Cap
My niece turned 4 today. If she could think beyond her Barbie in the Pool and chocolate cake "with lots of colors", I am sure she would wish you a Happy Birthday - and say you are SO OLD! <grin>She is so dramatic for a 4 yr old.Speaking of Florida, I recently booked my 10th annual Atlanta Braves Spring Training trip to Florida, the 6th yr at Disney World. Basebally by day, Pleasure Island by night. Now true, Disney is no cheap ticket, but this is my one vacation of the year, and I begain saving for it immediately after the last trip (direct deposit to a savings account with my credit union) so the I already have it half paid for, and the rest I can carry out of disposable cash.Other than my current battle with Blue, my credit card situation is fine. All my debt (besides car and home) is in an equity line at 4.25% on which I am paying interest plus principle each month. I do not think I it is a problem (I am using only 20% of the equity line and my home has appreciated some 66% since I took opened it (according to my property tax valuation). Still, I am concerned that much of it is consumr-related and not equity-building but it has been a tight couple of years (I work for and own some of that stock that lost 85% over the last 2 years. I am positioning my retirement fund to take advantage of any recovery, and I have hopes the company will rebound late this year. I realize that my problems are ones of perception compared to the truly difficult situations many of the posters here are facing.I have been reading here the last few weeks, especially about you, Wild, and I think the biggest lesson I have learned is that with the right attitude, I can weather anything. Either you are one terrific writer of reality fiction or you are a special someone who has looked their demons in the eye, swallowed there pride, and decided to open their life for the education of all who want to listen. I do not know if you will consider yourself a winner with still so much left to do, but I think you should. When I grow up to be old and 50, I want to be just like you!FuskieFool
