Happy 60th Birthday, Luv

Today, 60 is sexy! Barry Gibb, my lifetime crush, has hit this milestone, and he looks better than ever in my eyes.

My crush began when I was 10 years old. It has lasted almost 30 years. In 1998, after meeting just about every celebrity I ever wanted to meet in my life, I FINALLY got to meet Barry in Miami. It was the only meeting that really ever mattered to me when it came to famous people. I will never forget his hug, and how he called me "Luv"...and I melted into a puddle on the ground. Swoon!

At the Tornado Relief Benefit in Hendersonville on the First of May, I was lucky enough to get right up front. When Barry came out, the crowd went absolutely haywire! Well, so did I...my little girl has never seen her mommy act like a crazed teenager until that night. I was screaming "I love you, Barry!" just like all the other middle aged women there reliving their youth. Of course, my daughter looked at me like I had lost my mind. For a few wonderful minutes, I had. It was an exhilarating.

So now my luv, there's "only words, and words are all I have"...to say you still make my heart skip a beat. I wish you a Happy Birthday. May you have many, many more healthy, happy years.

I join you in these birthday greetings to Barry. I LOVE the Bee Gees. I mean, I love them and could write the world's longest blog post about how great I think they are. I was always more partial to Maurice in terms of hotness but I love them all.

Happy Birthday Dear Barry!!!!

Just how is it you have met all these fabulous celebs Ginger?
I met Barry at the Hendersonville relief concert as well. I had to sneak backstage, but I got the interview I was looking for!
He is great! Happy Birthday Berry!
