Forty Was Fabulous! Ketchup #25


Our beloved friends, Michele and Mel are at it again, this time celebrating the first birthday of their #KetchupWithUs series, so it is time to celebrate!

'KETCHUP WITH US' - PROMPT 25

In 57 words or less, tell us about an incredible, disastrous or otherwise memorable birthday in your life.



"The ruby is the stone of the fortieth year," declared My Sweetheart, planning my celebration.  
Ruby slippers, 
Ruby chalice,
Guests dressed in shades of red.
Fantastic photo retrospective set to my favorite music. 
Delivery the Legend of The Hundred Year-Old Burmese Eye of the Guinea Pig, 
And most beautiful ruby I've ever seen. 
Forty was fabulous!

      Sorry your 40th was a suckfest.
      Forty-three is pretty awesome, too. You are going to rock it!

    1. Excellent!
      Two years to plan should give him plenty of time!
      Thanks for reading and commenting.

    1. I live to educate!
      Glad I could get the information to you in plenty of time for him to start planning!
      Sweetheart knows all kinds of random stuff like that. It comes in handy sometimes.
