Seventy...


There is so much yet to do, to learn, to experience... looking forward from 70. One day into this journey, it doesn't feel like 70, what ever that is supposed to feel like. 
I am blessed with great family, good friends, and good health. I am just me.

So as I sat at mass I had one prayer...



and one question...

  1. Hope your birthday was great. And answer to your question, if the holy water sizzles it means you're on fire!

  3. Your birthday has passed but the celebration of you continues! (still, I'm not all that surprised that Holy Water sizzles and pops when it hits your skin....)

  5. I am a few months away from the same birthday, but will stay away from churches as the water may sizzle and lighting may strike.

    1. Adrienne, Thanks, I'm thinking I should learn how to weld, since the biscuit making has been a bust!

  7. Having never partaken in Baptism or Holy Water, I do not have the gravitas to answer your question other to wonder whether the Holy Water was cold when it left its special nozzle by the entrance to the church. If so, then you, Brig, on your 70th birthday are a hottie and I say to all men in the Big Valley...watch out. I wish you only the very best as you embrace this new decade in your life. I'm not too far behind.

    1. Cheri, Thank you for the good wishes. Might be a bit of an oxymoron: 70 and hottie! We still have try, and that counts, right?

  9. It means that you've been munching "pop rocks" in church again, and the residue was still on your fingers. When will you ever grow up, Brig??? JK! Happy birthday!
