Moms & Music in May … Make Way!
Few will disagree, mothers are special. A true mother however, is not simply the woman who biologically birthed you, or the woman who bore your child(ren), or as the dictionary explains, “that which gives birth to something” …
The type of mother who is honored on Mother’s Day (May 8), is one who hopefully earned her title. She who personifies the essence of “Mother Nature” – loving, giving, nurturing. That doesn’t mean she is one-sided (all for you) or loves without discipline.
Just like moms, MAY 39ers are multi-faceted with complexity to match. Deliberate and down-to-earth Taurus (April 20-May 20) transforming into quick-witted and chatty Gemini (May 21-June 20) is a big leap. Even if your mom or other loved one is on the cusp and caught between, you gotta love ‘em anyway!
So besides Mother’s Day, what do we have goin’ on – ♪ Yeah, what’s goin’ on … ♪ – in May? You're only a blink away ...Older Americans Month: of course that isn’t you, ‘cause you’re only 39 and Holding!

15th: Straw Hat Day – wear a boater that has nothing to do with water.
25th: Towel Day – “about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have”
26th: World Lindy Hop Day – my dance instructor mom couldn’t resist tweaking my name for the dance!
39ers with ATT-i-tude will spend the month of May with the lovely May lily, or lily of the valley. In the world of birthday meanings, it implies harmony, humility, and all is right with the world. Ah – beware such ravishing deceit …
If you can’t resist presenting your May honey with a handful of the pretty white flowers, make sure your loved ones (pets included) don’t eat them! Every inch of the dainty flower is extremely poisonous. But an attractive arrangement of quality silks from your local craft shop, in a sweet, handcrafted vase, is a loving alternative.
What more can May 39ers do to celebrate their month in style? Classic concerts in May:
May 13 – John Fogerty / Thackerville, Oklahoma
May 15 – Peter Frampton / Kansas City, Missouri
May 20 – Joan Jett / Dells, Wisconsin
May 27 – The Who / San Diego, California
Whatever you do – whoever you pamper for May birthdays – remember, no need to call May Day! No worries – it’s only another year of 39 and Holding.
Happy UN-Birthday May 39ers,
(Here’s lookin’ at you, kids – 39AHC Birthday 39ers, Pauline and Judith!)
