"They Say It's Your Birthday..."




"Dun-uh  dun-uh  dun-uh  dun-nuh, they say it's your birthday!" John, Paul, George and Ringo, wishing Bobbie a "Happy Birthday to ya!"


Once upon a time, long long ago (hee hee), I'm talking W W II, here... (ok, it was toward the end, but you can do the math), came the leading wave of what was going to be forever referred to as, "The Baby Boomers." Guess who was leading the tsunami? "My Girl! Yes, I'm talkin' 'bout My Girl, My Girl!"  And now I've got "sunshine, on a cloudy day." 

I fell for this mountain gal for several reasons. One; she loved all things outdoors. Two; she was a runner. Three; I couldn't keep up with her... still can't. She makes the Energizer Bunny look like his batteries are dead. I kinda think that's cool.

She also likes hiking, biking, climbing, camping, traveling and exploring from a little box on wheels. So she's an RV'er, too... on top of all these other wonderful things. 

One day she decided to be an artist. Another day she decided to be a bad ass Sudoku Queen. So there is more to this woman than "Physical, Lets get Physical." She has a brain that beats me too... I wasn't counting on that, but I can live with it :).

What else can I say... she's steady as a rock when I'm in tears, and has gas in her tank when mine is empty. Oh, and she's not a shopper... avoids The Mall like it's a disease. How lucky am I now! 

She can also whip up a meal in five minutes, make complex quilts, sew stuff, and still fit into her prom dress. She's never too high, seldom low, always up for a challenge, not averse to danger and risk... can swing a hammer and handle a nail gun on a twenty foot ladder or straddling an I-Beam way up in the rafters. 

Indeed, "how lucky am I." Happy Birthday Bobbie!!!!!  

Marathon Man Leonard and I put together a little impromptu party last night. I see the Growler is empty this morning... and I have a headache. Poor Leon is supposed to do a twenty mile run today. I hope he feels better than I do. Bobbie's not much of a drinker so she's looking chipper and is talking about snowshoeing Red and then going sledding. It would have to be her birthday. Be careful what "traits" you find attractive in a woman... they can come back to haunt you when you're hungover.

  2. Happy Birthday Bobbie!
    It has been a pleasure watching you explore the West and getting to know better over the last 5 years. You are a sweet, soft spoken and good looking gal that Mark captures well in his trail experience photos. Best wishes on your Birthday and go Broncos!

  6. Happy birthday to you, Bobbie. Though we've never met I can say I'd love to meet you. We've learned a lot about all things Bobbie in Box Canyon Blog. If we're in the same area, let's all get together.

    Time to enjoy another year!

  14. Happy Birthday, Bobbie! What an amazing tribute!

    Although I love the essence of the photographer capturing the artist as she captures the inspiration for the art, it is still nice to see pictures of your "front side" for a change. ;-)

    Enjoy the moment!

  25. Happy Birthday, Bobbie! You are the epic Energizer Bunny! My dad used to always worry about you. He was afraid that Mark always had you in front on the hikes to flush out the rattlesnakes during your winter trips. :)
