Happy Birthday to Me


Pardon the uncharacteristic self-indulgence but as you all know we never throw anything away here at the Library (at least not on purpose). That's what makes this a great place for pop culture. I have comic books from when I was seven years old (the same copies!), movie ads from when I was twelve, autographed pictures I got when I was sixteen, books I got between ages nine and forty-seven, records I bought when I was ten, magazines I bought throughout my teens and movies I've collected throughout my adult life. This being my 48th birthdayI became a bit introspective and wondered where this pack-rat mentality (that my lovely wife indulges) might have begun. Then I saw this picture of myself, taken in 1959, the year of my birth and I knew. I STILL have those shoes. Sigh.

Happy Birthday Steve!

I wanted to post this yesterday and failed...Sorry.

Hope you had a good time. Any cool gifts to report?

at least you have baby pics...
my stepdad burned all mine.

I have one pic of myself at age 4 and the next is at age 9.

My birthday is the 17th...I'll be all of a young 47.
