Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen

How did this little girl

become this young woman?

Annie-- June 2013

Annie– June 2013

Annie is going to be famous someday. You’ll know her when you see her. Lots of famous people were born on July 9, so it follows that Annie will join the ranks of the Famous July 9ers. This elite group includes:

Tom Hanks — you’ve probably heard of him. He’s a two time Academy Award winning actor which Annie will be someday. Or maybe just once, I won’t get greedy.

Courtney Love — who is also blonde, hopefully Annie will stay away from the heroin and being a part of any group called “Hole”. Go with this version of Courtney:

Courtney looks like she's kinda pulled it together.

Not this version:

Courtney would have been lucky to have her bra showing be the worst thing to happen to her on this day.

Fred Savage — Cute boy from The Wonder Years and Princess Bride. Actor.

Kiely Williams — One of the Cheetah Girls and we used to listen to them on the Disney channel on the radio. We’re Cheetah Girls, We’re Cheetah Sistahs!

Jimmy Smits– Love him! Another solid actor.

Kelly McGillis, Richard Roundtree, and Chris Cooper….all actors who make a living acting.

On the other hand the Infamous July 9ers include:

OJ Simpson and Jody Arias.

OJ Simpson acting with Leslie Nielsen and George Montgomery. That's a good gig.

OJ Simpson booked for murdering his two people. Bad career move.

You may have heard that song “Billy Don’t Be a Hero”?

Annie, don’t be a murderer. Seriously, bad idea.

My birthday advice to you, my beautiful girl:

1. No heroin

2. No “Hole”

3. No murdering

I think you’ll be good.

Happy Birthday Doll!

    Happy Birthday! Listen to your mother, and remember to pass along your autographed photo to all of us so we might sell them on eBay and be able to afford good nursing homes.

    Have cake. I insist.

  7. Happy sweet 16 Annie. You have some good company including the writer, Oliver Sacks, who is 64 years ahead of you. Maybe 64 years from today, you’ll remember this essay he wrote about celebrating his milestone:

    Maybe not.

      Fantastic piece. Just posted it on my FB. I will send to Annie with a link to my *(^*%*%) blog which she doesn’t read because it’s not on Twitter or Instagram.

      Kids these days.

      Thanks Lame.

  8. Also, no cruelty to animals. I’m not particularly big on animals. I don’t even have any pets. I just figured it’s good advice. It is good advice, right?

    Happy birthday to your daughter! She looks like a princess in her recent pic!

  10. Happy birthday beautiful Annie!!! 16 is a wonderful year of life. Enjoy it to the fullest.

    Maggie, I dedicated a post to you. It was the one I had mentioned a while back. You’ll remember.

  11. that is good advice, she is lucky that her July 9 predecessors made the big mistakes for her to learn from.
