When I graduated to the primary class in Sunday School, there was a little church "bank" and the kids would put in five pennies when they turned five. Then the class would sing Happy Birthday to them.
With my December birthday, it seemed everyone else had already celebrated their big day and mine would never come! So one Sunday, I collected pennies from under the couch cushions at home and slipped them in my purse. When I got to Sunday School, I fibbed and told Ms. Lounette: "Today's my burf-day!"
Sadly for me, she worked at the same department store with my Mom, and she remembered well the day I was born. BUSTED!
Well, yesterday I officially "HIT 62".
I'm not sure that little bank would hold that many pennies!
Thanks to my YOUNGER sister Mildred, the news got out. Thank you for all the good wishes.
