Two times Two times Thirteen

A deck of cards (without jokers).

The white keys on an 88 key piano.

Weeks in a year, rounded off to the nearest week.

And me.


I'm divisible by 13 (and 2 and 2), and sometimes added into metal alloys.

I'm 52 today, and as I always do, I sent off a check in the amount of my age, to the New York Times Neediest Cases Fund. It's my little way of marking my birthday.

That donation idea is brilliant. I'm going to join you with that!

Many happy returns of the day!

52 is a fine number. I love the list! (Of course I do.)

Happy birthday, Magpie.

You're a good egg. Or four dozen and four. Happy day.

Happy birthday! While I don't believe the number because you look a lot younger than 52, I do like math games :-)

Happy Birthday!

Mine is just one day before yours - this year, I'm the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything. We between-Christmas-and-NYs babies have to stick together. ;)

Happy, happy birthday!!

Emily said...

I love that idea.

You made me do math, but I forgive you--mostly because, like most of your commenters here, I'm charmed as hell by the idea of making a donation. Yes.
