What I was doing 40 years ago today:

Chances are, I'll be having cake today as well.

Have a good Monday, everyone!

Cheers,


Karen

You are speedy quick, Coleslaw! Thanks for the kind birthday wishes.

You've gotten cuter over the years.

Happy Birthday! :)

Bill B said...

Happy b-day, Karen! I hope you've enjoyed it. Still 6 hours of it left on the west coast ツ

Karen McQuestion said...

Rex, I was hoping someone would notice! That was just the right thing to say.

Thanks to everyone for the birthday greetings. I'm a little old to be bringing it up, but somehow I couldn't resist.

Christina said...

Christina - xristya@rock.com - Happy Birthday, Karen! And Many Happy Returns! Capricorns are go-getters and climb slowly to the top of the (writing) mountain!

Karen McQuestion said...

Christina, interesting comment about Capricorns climbing slowly to the top of the mountain! I'd also heard (or maybe this means the same thing) that Caps find success late in life. True for me, anyway. :)

Neve Maslakovic said...

Ok, I'm seeing this a day late, so happy belated b-day, Karen! Man, you haven't changed a bit. Seriously.

Karen McQuestion said...

Okay, Neve, it's official--you are my absolute favorite Minnesotan author! Thank you.

Debbi said...

Omigosh! Happy belated birthday, Karen! And many more. :)

And you are not too old at all. :) Not even close to old.

And my sister is a Capricorn. So, Capricorns are awesome. :)

H.S. said...

Happy belated birthday! Hope your cake was yummy!

Karen McQuestion said...

Not even close to old? Debbi, you are too kind.

The cake was yummy, thanks H.S.!

Shayne Parkinson said...

Happy belated birthday, Karen! I hope the day involved cake.

Christina said...

Christina - xristya@rock.com - Astrologically, I'm an honorary Capricorn (too long an explanation to make here). Capricorns can be ultra-serious or ultra-perverse, choose your camp! But my question is, how old were you in the bithday photo? And how was your birthday, yesterday?

Karen McQuestion said...

Thanks, Linda!

And yes, Shayne, there was cake. Chocolate, which is not always my favorite, but this one was incredibly moist with this sour cream frosting (which sounds awful, but is not at all).

Christina, my birthday was stellar, thanks! And I was 11 in the photo, and totally rocking the vest. :)

Brenda ND said...

Happy Birthday! I hope this one was one of your very best days! I love the picture of you getting ready to blow out candles.

Thank you, Brenda--it was an excellent day.

Sean McCartney said...

Happy Birthday! I have been so swamped at work and trying to find a new publisher I haven't checked your blog lately. Best wishes. :)

Sean

Karen McQuestion said...

Thanks, Sean, and good luck with the publisher hunt!

Barbara Sissel said...

Happy very Belated Birthday, Karen. Just saw this at Goodreads. I love your birthday outfit, too! My Mom ordered out of the Sears catalogue. I remember several seasons when everything I wore was this color called loden green. Now I wonder what is a loden?? :)

Karen McQuestion said...

Hey, I remember loden green too! We must be from the same era. Thanks for stopping by, Barbara, and for leaving a comment. It's good to hear from you.

Happy b-day!

Nick Nutter said...

Happy Extremely Belated Birthday! (I haven't been on here in about a month.) How's the writing going?

Karen McQuestion said...

Hey, Nick Nutter! What a nice surprise to see you here.

All is fine with my writing, thanks for asking. I have a new book coming out in May and I'm already 14,000 words into another one. Of course, I think all 14,000 words are terrible, but I'll keep going anyway... Par for the course.

I hope all is well with you and that you're still doing your writing/composing/performing.
