#atozchallenge, Q is for Queen…

and Q is for Quotations…
birthday_quotes_14

I couldn’t make up my mind which I liked better, so I’m using both.  I definitely enjoy being queen for the day on my birthday and letting the men in my life indulge me… 🙂

I also found some fun quotations about birthdays that I wanted to share.  Enjoy…

 

I intend to live forever.  So far, so good!

                                                                                ~Stephen Wright

 

A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman’s birthday but never remembers her age.

                                                                                 ~Robert Frost

 

You know you’re getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.
                                                                           ~Bob Hope

 

Who wants to live forever?
                                                                            ~Freddie Mercury

 

Why is a birthday cake the only food you can blow on and spit on and everybody will still rush to get a piece?
                                                                           ~Bobby Kelton

 

Birthdays are like taxes.  Both seem to happen too often and there’s nothing you can do to avoid either.
                                                                            ~Blake Kallen

 

Thanks to Facebook, I never forget the birthdays of people I don’t really know.
                                                                              ~Andy Borowitz

 

An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have.  The older she gets, the more interested he is in her.
                                                                               ~Agatha Christie

 

Let them eat cake.
                                                                              ~Marie Antoinette

      1. I made a post about him a while back, on his birthday. Interesting guy, and one of the best voices ever.

      2. I just saw something online about a study having to do with his voice. Did you see it? Pretty recent.

      3. I didn’t, but I’d be interested. He had arguably one of the best, most versatile voices in recording history. The power, the range, and effortless. Interesting guy.

      1. The Queen has her “actual” birthday, and her “official” birthday (ie the anniversary of becoming Queen)… not sure how that would translate for us normal types! Hope you’re having a fab birthday x

      2. Well, at my age one birthday is enough. But I guess if I were a royal I might want more 🙂 we’re working up to birthday week next week.
