Happy Birthday, Red!!!*


The stars were aligned my friends.

First, on Nov. 18, 909 people died at Jonestown. Then, on Nov. 27, a mayor and city supervisor were assassinated in San Francisco. And then finally, on Nov. 30, 1978 the biggest event of all came to pass … publication of The Times in England was suspended due to a labor dispute.*

And Red was BORN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s right guys, after much, much ado, its finally here. Red’s 30th birthday. She celebrated in high style last night, painting downtown San Diego well, red.

Please join me in wishing her a Happy Birthday today. This comes but once a year. (Though the 30th might happen every year from now on. You know how that goes).


* I'm pleased to announce this is Gingers is the Watchword's 500th post!!!

Happy 30th Red! Since 40 is the new 30, is 30 the new 20?

Wait a minute, does that balloon say "Journey" on it?! Red, I hope you played my favorite song of all time on this day, the most momentous of birthdays.

Feliz cumpleanos, Tanti auguri di buon compleanno, and Joyeux anniversaire! (Covering all my bases.)

I'm with Pistols - I feel like I have been saying "Happy Birthday" for a month now. And as soon as we finish the float we've made in Red's honor, I'm done!
