I haven't even gotten to read everything yet, I was to intrigued that YOU & I were born on the exact same day in the same year........
I'm a bit freaked out though. 40 has always been an age I considered to be OLD, guess I better change my way of thinking pretty fast.

Danni,

This was fun to read I was born in Pueblo Colorado and my family is all there we go a few times a year to visit!!!

My parents lived in Trinidad at the time, but the only OBGYN there then was the same Dr. who started the first Sex Change opperations and so my Mom refused to go to him LOL!!!

So they went down to Pueblo where they were both from to go to the OB and to have me there too!!!
