thirty-five

Thirty-four years ago today, this picture was taken of me. The picture would look very similar today, except I won't be wearing those rockin' pants, my hair is slightly longer, and I like to think I usually avoid getting the ice cream AND cake all over my face. Nowadays it's just bits of cake.

(Now, as a birthday present, I demand that you comment. And tell me that my daughter looks just like me, even if she doesn't.)

I was going to just say that man you had some skillz with that fork! But ALSO, Alice is just an adorably newer model of yourself...

Happy Birthday!!

Great job with the fork! At that age, I think I was still employing the face-first method.

Alice looks like you. And just as cute, too! :)

Happy birthday!

Those pants are fabulous!

And I almost thought this was a picture of Alice. You two look so much alike!!

The Wife said...

Happy Birthday, my friend.

Please tell me your excellent Mother still has those pants somewhere because Alice would ROCK them nowadays!

And yes, now that I see you with a similar hair cut, she looks astonishingly like you...except for those blue eyes.

I love you tons. Please tell me there will be cake AND ice cream in your future for today!

Happy birthday Whimsy!

I like the double fistting fork and spoon you have going on in the picture.

Of course Alice is your mini-me. Who claims otherwise?!

Happy Birthday, Whimsy! I hope 35 is good to you. I have to agree; there is a striking resemblance between mother and daughter. Ditto for all those comments about using the fork! Advanced skills at an early age.
