Happy Birthday Barbra!!! Wishing you many more.

Hello. So this is Barbra's 68th birthday. It does not seem possible as of course we are all getting older together and I certainly never thought I would be this age. That is so rude of you to ask almost as rude as me posting Bab's age. That's the price of celebrity I guess, annoying fans like me reminding you that you are old....but still fabulous.

My mother took me to see the movie "Funny Girl" when it was released in 1969, I think. Anyway, I did not know that I was a Barbra fan at that point. I didn't know that I was gay, well I didn't have words for it anyway. I certainly knew that I was "different" Anyway, whether she (my mother, a great lady) knew it or not she opened my eyes to a woman that really gave me something to believe in. She was the ugly duckling who became a swan through her voice and odd, beautiful looks. I saw that different was okay as a matter of fact it could be great. I don't think I made such a clear association then but certainly over time. Call Her what you will but she has given 100% and will get the respect she deserves in time.
