Tweet GeorgeB’s big birthday on Saturday was a lot of fun. After the celebratory dinner, Terri Berry and I lined up with Dad for an updated version of our 1989 birthday photo. Then we gave him kisses … … which inspired his sons-in-law to do the same. My mom and nephew got in on the […]

Tweet My handsome father, GeorgeB, is turning 75 today. The family is getting together for a celebration. GeorgeB is expecting us this time, unlike in 1989, when we threw him a surprise 50th birthday party. Back then, there seemed to be an eternity between me and 50.  Now it’s around the corner. Saying “time flies” […]

Tweet I’m going to be drowning my sorrows in Champagne tonight because it is, indeed, my birthday. As I’ve previously noted, I don’t think birthdays are that much fun anymore, even though they’re better than the alternative.  I was much more thrilled by them when this photo was taken … on Dec. 23, 1984, when […]

Tweet Happy birthday to my gorgeous mother, BarbaraB! I thought I’d celebrate by sharing this March 1967 vacation photo of us. What do you mean, you can’t see me? I’m there! Admittedly, I became a lot easier to spot after I was born in December of that year.  Did you know that during the first […]

In the Family Guy episode “Boys Don’t Cry,” the Griffin family is on the run from people who think baby Stewie is possessed by the devil. Stewie […]

Tweet Getting older is infinitely preferable to the alternative. Besides, I’m a late bloomer, so I am convinced the best is yet to come. That said, it’s strange to remember that my current age seemed ancient to me when I was a kid. Oh well, what did I know then? I was young and dumb, […]

Tweet Rolling Stone Keith Richards turns 69 today, thanks to an indomitable constitution that has survived everything from heroin to a mean coconut tree. His rock ‘n’ roll sartorial flair is intact too: when MrB and I saw the Stones on their 50th anniversary tour at Barclays Center on December 8, I was thrilled to […]

Tweet Today is rapper Eminem‘s 40th birthday. I hope it’s a good one for him. One’s 40s can be a fun time. I’ve been enjoying mine since I decided I was too damn old to tolerate any more asshats in my life. That meant I had to take a hard look at myself and figure […]
