My friend Ron, who was born four days after me in the same hospital, we grew up together, and there is not I time that we can remember not knowing each other, sent me a photo of my horoscope as part of his wishing me a happy birthday. He commented that 41 days was an odd number of days to be extraordinarily lucky. Forty-one is truly an odd number, and prime, as it is only divisible by 1 and 41, and I told him it was odd because it was between Biblical and the answer to life, the universe, and everything. The horoscope is very positive. Another interesting aspect of the horoscope is that the first four of my lucky numbers add up to be my age, and the fifth number is Biblical.
I ended up doing a lot of errands on the way home from work, and a lot of different chores after I got home this afternoon. The weather was clouds moving through, being pushed by high winds and the temperature had dropped significantly from yesterday. Well after sundown, facing wind and cold, I walked out to the river and got photos of the cranes in the darkness, the wild clouds, and the colors lingering in the dusk.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TIM!!!
Thank you for the pics and the positive outlook for an extended time!
Thanks, Susan. Happy Birthday to you too.
Wishing you a happy birthday too, Susan!
Thank you, Lavinia. 🙂
Happy birthday, Tim. Stunning pics as always.
Well now… I can’t ever forget your birthday, Tim! It’s my baby’s birthday today, too. She is 22.
I hope you had a fantabulously marvellous day! xoxo
Beautiful pictures… Of course the sky would deliver today 🙂
Thanks, Dale. The sky came through, but I had to suffer in the cold wind to get it. But I’m not complaining. Today is Cindy’s father’s birthday, she has Unique Times blog, and Susan with SW Desert blog birthday, also. Happy birthday to your daughter.
It’s a popular day for birthdays! I have two other FB friends as well.
And thank you re Ariel. 😊
It is a popular day for sure.
What gorgeous pics! The Goldens and blues and purples and Greys- stunningly clicked as always!
Also, wishing you many many many more happy returns of the day!! 🎂🎂 May you have a fantabulous year ahead, loads of adventures and celebrations along the road. Sending prayers and best wishes for an amazing year! Happiest birthday!!!Have a blast! 🥳
Awww. Thank you for the wonderful comment and blessing, Sam. I appreciate it. Which reminds me I had some rhymes for name, but didn’t have time to comment. Now I need to go back and remember what they were.
What rhymes for name? 🤔
Anyway, hope you have or had a lovely day! It’s the next day here already, (27th Oct) so I should have had to say “belated birthday wishes” 😉
Our worlds are opposite in so many ways. You might enjoy this post: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-6Mb. However, we both live in the same hemesphere.
Oh, it was a masterpiece!
It amazes me- the same hemisphere yet feels like almost different worlds 😀
I think we would find each other’s worlds vastly different worlds. Mine sparcely populated and dry. Yours, densly populated and wet (wet compared to where I live, I’m sure). We are worlds apart in different worlds. A least we are are on the same planet.
And we live in different times too 😉
The Earth is quite small, yet so diverse. “A bundle of contradictions” 😄
Different times as in our generations and the time zones we live in. You are the future, I’m the past. Yet we live in the present, share our thoughts, and learn from each other. It really makes for a beautiful world to bring different generations from different cultures together to share bits and pieces of our disparate lives.
You honestly don’t feel like a “different generation” at all! “It really makes for a beautiful world to bring different generations from different cultures together to share bits and pieces of our disparate lives.” In fact, that’s a very gen-Z thing to say! I’m sure most 50+ people would think of technology as being an unnecessary intervention in life. You are progressive and more open in that sense, akin to the youth.
Also, I said “different times” because you come from a liberal society and India is quite conservative (to put it lightly). I may belong to the younger generation, but I am conservative/ orthodox when it comes to certain things myself. (I don’t mean politically).
Teens in your country would be wildly different from us. So we do live a bit in the past, but also have one leg in the future 😅 It’s like we live in many centuries at once here. You mostly live in the present (and the future) which I greatly admire and respect 😊
That is very true. You have ancient culture and traditions. We have a few hundred years of history in this country. Many people want to erase that history. The ancient past is “classic rock” for many young people. I’m a dinosaur in their eyes.
Jumping in to voice agreement. I really don’t understand this mentality/trend of different generations hating each other (according Buzzfeed/the internet, Boomer/Millennial hate with Gen Z judging the crap out of Millennials is like, a thing). But really, we should actually talk to and listen to each other instead of making snap judgements. One thing I like about blogging vs. the internet generally is that bloggers seem to actually listen and learn from each other vs. the rest of the internet where you just get trolls
I don’t get it either. Younger people can have really good insights and challenge the same stupid things people have done forever because people don’t like change, and close off opportunities to change and possibly make things better. I appreciate that they challenge things. I often don’t agree, but I’ll listen. I know a lot of people who complain a lot about millennials and gen z using stereotypes that indicate they rarely interact with millennials and gen z. People think it’s cool the trash other people. It’s sad. There is a lot of envy and insecurity in this world.
And I know lots of young people (are Millennials even young anymore? We have Gen Z now) who hate on Boomers/Gen X for no good reason. You are right about the insecurities
Happy Birthday, Tim! I like that horoscope reading – right on!
I echo the best wishes for a wonderful year ahead, and many more to come. The photos are stunning. You had a wildly beautiful day down there for your birthday.
Happy Birthday, Timothy! 🎂 Nice horoscope. I’m not sure about horoscopes, but in dreams birth can represent a new beginning. ☀️
Thanks, Ann Marie. I’m not into horoscopes. But they are fun to read sometimes.
Spectacular! Happy Birthday once again, Timothy! I’ll have to see if the cranes are flying in my corner of the Southwest.
Thanks, again, Cheyenne. The cranes are coming in pretty thick now. You should start seeing them soon.
Happy birthday 🤗🤗
Happy Birthday Timothy and sorry that i’m to late (it’s already the 27th)
You one of those bloggers on the other side of the world that Sam and I were discussing. Thanks, Rudi.
AND the pics are EPIC. Happiest day to you .
Thank you, Shey.
Hope you have had fun.
I had a good time.
Happy Birthday, Tim! Hope you had a wonderful day with espresso’s and chocolate cake…
Espresso and a chocolate doughnut. Thanks, Herman.
So, on your birthday you treat us with the best shots from the paintings painted just for you! How can we measure up? 🙏🌻
Someone sent the most beautiful water color. Hard to top that. Thanks, Marina.
Oh, but your images inspire more watercolors! 😉
Happy Birthday, Timothy, and all best wishes imaginable!
Interesting horoscope. Happy Birthday Timothy:)
It’s is very interesting. Thanks, Janet.
A belated Happy Birthday, Tim. I hope you had a wonderful day. That’s a great horoscope, so I’m sure you’re looking forward to the next 41 days. Meanwhile, cheers to the beauties in creation that you captured.
Thanks, Frank. I am looking forward to them.
Fascinating. You don’t usually get that much precision in a horoscope. I feel like horoscopes are usually vague enough to be accurate for everyone. In any case, happy birthday and best wishes that the next 41 days (and subsequent days thereafter) are excellent!
Thanks for the best wishes, JYP. Horoscopes are like mini apocalypses to me. While I read apocalypses, I rarely read horoscopes, but this one does seem much more specific and detailed than usual.
A lot to take in there, Sir.
Did I miss your Birthday? Sorry, mate, I hope it went well.
Then your prime numbers bit in there; I’m not clever enough to grasp them. Lack of education…
Then, the fantastic photos you posted – Brilliant! Hehehe! I’m not jealous, of course. Hehehe!
You’re not missing much on the prime number. Thanks, Inchcock.
Happy belated Birthday, Timothy! A gorgeous photo collage, as always and that is a winning horoscope. 🎉
Happy belated birthday, Tim! I hope you have a great year ahead! 😄
Wishing you a most successful upcoming year following your Happy Birthday!
Thanks, Maj & Sher.
How cool is that.. I’ll share it with my Dad too.. and I agree about Pieces adoring you!~!🌷🌷 That wold be me too since I’m a pieces. Wow, the sky had a great gift for you and us. Thanks for sharing it!💖
Thank you for your wonderful comment, Cindy. You are a lovely Pisces, and I adore you, as well.
You’re soooo welcome Timothy. awww thanks so much. BTW my friend LOVED your song. His words and i quote:
“This is crazy hilarious…..what a character….and his lyrics are so creative.”
I’m happy he liked it. It’s probably different from what he usually deals with.
I know right… hahaha 🤣 True that.. I could have him put you on the payroll but Covid shows are out now. 🤣🤣
Any that was covid and is now “out” is good. Thanks for thinking of me.
Yes indeed so true! Pleasure always!💕
Happy Birthday.. 41 is good. I like prime numbers, always!
Wishing a very Happy Birthday!! Godbless!! And as usual your photographs are outstanding and stunning. I hope you enjoyed your birthday. Stay blessed and healthy.
Whoa, that 6th shot in the grouping packs a lot of aggression – grabs your attention. Happy birthday – might consider running an ultra in the next 41 days and put that luck to the test ha!
I think I might answer the question if there is a heaven or hell if I tried an ultra in the sorry shape I’m in. Thanks, Brian.
Happy belated birthday – I hope the good luck highlighted by the very fine horoscope comes to pass (to continue your biblical theme).
Happy Birthday, Tim!
So, I read the horoscope. Looks like you’ll be getting a new kitten.
I admit to a tad of cloud jealousy. Yes, we have cloud here: 1 big cloud that just sits over the city.
xoxoxo HB xoxoxo
Thanks, Resa. I can’t deal with the thought of another cat to herd. Spunk and Silver are out of control, and the kittens egg them on. We get great clouds out here.
Belated birthday greetings.
Happy Birthday, Tim! Wishing you all the best during the coming year!
My dad’s birthday too, so’s gotta be a good one, lol! Happy birthday, Tim 😊
Thanks, Felipe. It was a popular day to be born.
Lol, true! 😊
Those are amazing skies! Great shots Tim! Happy birthday to you … hope you had a great day!
Happy birthday Tim, yea!!!! A great life to celebrate. I am a Capricorn Tim. Could you tell? Sending my love and very big birthday hugs for you!!!!! So glad you are here, the world is a better place with you in it!!!! Love and hugs, Joni
Thanks, Joni. I can’t tell people’s signs by their blogs. I’m not very in tune with signs. Thanks, Joni.
Me either. I always read my fortune cookie 🥠 though. ❤️
