This is a happy birthday shout out to Michele who came and spent her 50th birthday with us in our Jared Takes a Wife workshop in Kirksville yesterday!
I remember other memorable birthdays –turning 10 meant I was double-digits and I could get my ears pierced.
Turning 16 was a big one, I could finally date and get a job!
Well that was never that big of a deal because I was already married and wasn’t that much of a wild child! 21 passed rather quietly by.
But turning 50?! That’s HUGE! It’s like finally arriving at who you really are, through and through. 50 meant I didn’t have to take any guff from anyone, and I could finally say that I was going to do my life my way!
And so Michele was sung Happy Birthday by all 45 students in our workshop and all of us who have reached the wonderful age of 50 and beyond were able to welcome her into THE CLUB!
Happy Birthday, Michele! Thanks for spending your special day with us!

And just for fun --
This is the group of us that had departed the restaurant the night before to seek shelter during the tornado warning in the comfort of Barb’s beautiful home! Thanks for taking such good care of us, Barb!
Today we’ve got Texas Tumbleweed from More Adventures with Leaders & Enders up on deck. Another fun day in the works.
I’ll be heading out to Marshall, MO right after class is over. It should take me a couple of hours to get there.
Time to pack up the room here, load the car and head out.
Have a great Saturday, everyone! Time here is flying so quickly already!
