Turning 49 March 15, 2011

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

In case any of you (any of you who are not on Facebook, that is) were wondering if I turned a cartwheel on my birthday this year, the answer is yes, and here is the documentation. The photo was taken by Fat Red Ant, of course, who turns 49 today. I wonder if she’ll turn a cartwheel. She’s still nursing a months-old cartwheel-related injury that occurred in a crosswalk in Tokyo.

It’s a great picture–and a great cartwheel!! I’m glad you did it, glad it was recorded, and glad Fat Red Ant didn’t stay longer in Japan.

I have been very glad that Fat Red Ant is not in Japan! (And that she didn’t take me up on my idea of going back to that crosswalk for my cartwheel!)

What I’m wondering is, why didn’t your arms sink up to the shoulders in the snow? Happy birthday!

Lali, I was on the rail trail, which is packed down by snowmobiles. (And thank you!)

I’m so impressed: I couldn’t even do one of those when I was 11. And what form! You go you 49-year-old wild thing!!!

Oh, I forgot: happy birthday!

Argh, everyone’s said exactly what I wanted to say (including Helen – I could never do cartwheels). I am in awe at your awesome-cartwheel-turningness at the age of 49.

On the down side, you’ve reminded me I’ll be 49 later this year. Double argh.

Don’t worry, Mali–49 is still part of your youth (as IB has so aptly demonstrated). In about a month I’ll be two years away from 70. I have NO idea how this happened.
