Happy Birthday! Have you considered increasing your life insurance?

I am officially a pioneer. Since September 24th (my birthday) I have been LIVING the days of ’47 and will do so for another 361 days (unless I expire prior to the big 4 Dozen!)

I spent my happy birthday working my brains out in Elko, NV.

One thing you don’t want to see, first thing in the morning, on your birthday:

(this is from an actual email I received ON my birthday from the AICPA)

“You only have a few more days to increase your CPA Life coverage, issued by The ... Insurance Company of America, for the October 1, 2009 Plan Entrance Date! Act now and make sure your family has the financial protection they need to help maintain their lifestyle in case you die...

...Increase your term life coverage now...

...Remember, if you were to die, your CPA Life Plan benefit can help pay for expenses such as…”

On. My. Birthday.

Why didn’t they just send an executioner? Nothing says “Happy Birthday” quite like “Hey, you might die.” Hallmark, they ain’t.

What delightful birthday greetings have you received?

Oh, this is hilarious. Like someone sending a Grim Reaper singing telegram. That would have been the point where I got back into bed and pulled the covers over my head for the rest of the day.

LOL! My sweet daughter made a card some years ago of a horse headed up hill and the inside she wrote it is all down hill from here!
from my own flesh and blood!
Not quite the grim reaper but my own child? Guess I better save for my own nursing home so she does not pick it! :)

That's hysterical! But seriously, you are old and should be considering it. You know.
