For My Birthday...

I want what I can't have!
(maybe because it is safe)
I can't have 
what I have always thought to be 
the most beautiful male creature to ever walk this planet.
I can't have this funny man.
Or this ' man's man.'
Honestly, you can keep all the others
just give me a little bit of time with my Cary.
How I would love to have known him.
And if I were a man I would want to be him.
***
At midnight on this Valentine's Day 
I turn a year older, and wiser too, I hope.
*
Thank you all for the super sweet and thoughtful wishes on my birthday.
I love you guys. 
And I couldn't do this thing I do without you.

I Wish I could spend my birthday with all my 'buds' in Bloggieville.
I think we have built a good little town.
Don't you?

    Cary was the BEST.. I am in total agreement... I think he was probably a great dad too.. love seeing photos of him with his kids when they were munchkins..

    OH how we always want what we can't have... Well TODAY I hope you have your cake and eat it too!!!

    All the very best to you on your birthday!!! hope all your dreams and wishes come true!! Except Cary of course.. as that would involve some sort of weird voodoo and that ain't good!! haha

  11. Ahhh...a day filled with grace and Cary. Perfection.

    Just don't eat the blue cupcake, you know...the one for your boss...Cary might start looking funky. Not good.

    Happy day!

  12. Oh Renee,
    A birthday wish that can't be fullfilled. Never mind, perhaps there is a lookalike that you might bump into soon...a new client, a chance meeting, you never know. Never say never.
    It's that English accent that does it for you, isn't it ?
    Perhaps you should come over here for a holiday. I really think that your Cary Grant is out there somewhere.
    Have the best day EVER, Renee and spoil yourself rotten. With much love on your birthday. XXXX

  17. Happy Birthday Renee! Good choice! Cary Grant has always been my ultimate template for the perfect man! My father stood next to him in a movie line once (!) and said to him "you look familiar". Eons ago my sister and I (another fan) got tickets to hear him speak. His DVD's are wonderful mood altering substances: It takes a Thief, Bringing up Baby, Mr. Blanding builds his Dream house. Hope you have a dreamy day...and here's to your best year yet...cheers. Trish

  25. Oh... isn't he gorgeous! I could never tire of looking at him or hearing his voice! Such style and class...

    Hope your birthday was sweet...even though Cary couldn't make it...

  26. What can I say that would make your birthday a little sweeter, a little more special, I have no clue; BUT - I'm here to tell you if there was anyway I could reincarnate Mr. Grant I'd do it in the blink of an eye;
    just for you & have him all wrapped up in one of Sande Chase's glorious bows. What a handsome couple you two would make. I hope you had a tremendous birthday, I'm just sorry that I'm a bit late in the day (computer issues..arggg).
    I'll leave you with one of my favorite Cary Grant quotes;

    “I think that making love is the best form of exercise”

    Birthday wishes & love xx deb

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
