June 17, 19?? 馃巶 馃嵉 鈽曪笍


So out with the old and in with new

By keeping my sights in a broadened view

Time can warp a mind into worrisome channels

Dimming the lights at the end of the tunnels

Please let me grow older without being confused

And, let me be useful without being used

Growing older can be quite a scare

If you wait too long to show you care

For me a birthday is drawing near

Which I will welcome without fear

Of years gone by I prefer not to dwell

My numbered years I shall not tell

So out with the old and in with the new

Keeps me young from my point of view

June 17th, being my birthday, is the 168th day of the year, leaving 197 days until the end of the year. There are three birthstones for the month of June.聽

The pearl is the only gem from living sea creatures and requires no faceting or polishing to reveal their natural beauty.

The Alexandrite, an extremely rare chrysoberyl with chameleon-like qualities.聽Its color is a lovely green in both daylight and fluorescent light; it changes color to a purplish red in incandescent light.

The third stone is the Moonstone. A phenomenal gemstone, moonstones show a floating play of light (called adularescence ) and sometimes show either a multi-rayed star or a cat鈥檚 eye.聽

The zodiac sign for June is Gemini 鈥 June May 21 to June 20. Those bearing the Gemini zodiac are incredibly flexible people who can adapt to almost any situation. They also possess a tenacity that not only enables them to rise above major setbacks but to take full advantage of negative situations as well. Inherently curious, Geminis are also experts at unraveling mysteries of any sort.

I'll take one of each, please. Oh, and I'm not particular; rings, necklaces, earrings, or bracelets will be fine. Thank you :)
