That's how old I am today. In days that is. In weeks it would be something like 2087 and in years it would be 40. Minus one day of course, since my birthday isn't until tomorrow.

And when I celebrate my birthday I like to treat my passengers of the day. Which I won't have, since I am off tomorrow. So, I decided to treat one of you. With a give-away.

So, what am I giving away this year? Well, I'm not telling you yet, but I will give you a hint: it has something to do with footwear and the Netherlands.

What you need to do you wonder? Simple: leave a comment and on Saturday I will go to the psychic random selector thingy page and have it psychicly randomly select one of you! Isn't that easy??


  1. You must have some Hobbit genes as they give presents on their birthdays. Happy Birthday. Have a great day.

  2. mara has a present,
    to give away,
    I wander what it is,
    its almost time for that day.
    She says its from the Netherlands,
    and something to do with feet,
    so get your comments up people ,,
    so the one number picked
    is the one that will think, "how neat"
    its a poem, can you tell?
    i know its stupid
    im not a good poet at all

    if my Edgar Allen Poe was with me he would help me write one but we all would have a hard time understanding it.

  3. Aargh! I have your birthday written down in my date book but DUE TO THE DATE LINE I am now appearing slow in wishing you a Happy Birthday. Darn these time zones!

  4. Hmmm, whatever could it be? I hope the psychic select thingy doesn't select me, because I already own lots of typical Dutch shoes. So I'm not entering this giveaway ;-) But it is very sweet of you to give presents to others on your birthday. I hope you have a great day Mara, with lots of sunshine, friends, family and cakes and everything else you'd like for your birthday.

  5. I know what it is, nah ! If I understand well your savant calculations it will be a round birthday ?

    My birthday is next month fortunately not a round one !

  6. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I am still older than you. Hard to believe, I know! :D

  7. Congrats!
    You're like Sinterklaas.... giving away presents at your birthday!

    Hope you have a great day!
