Well, another year has gone by. Now I'm 65. I don't feel any older than I did yesterday. As a matter of fact, I don't feel old. I can still do most of the things I did when I was young. Only not as often and it takes me longer.
Had a wonderful evening with my children and grands. We all went to a local Asian restaurant for dinner, then back to my house for cake. Cupcakes to be exact. They are so much less mess and we don't have a whole lot of left over cake to tempt us for several tomorrows. The kids went together and bought me a new gas grill. I think they are trying to tell me something! (Like, "invite us over for a cookout, Dad.") So this weekend I will spend some time assembling the grill and getting it ready to go.
I got several nice cards from friends and family. All in all, a really nice birthday. I don't like a lot of fanfare, so this was perfect. I got a phone call from Curley, plus the perfect card which played music.
Now, I think I will retire to the bedroom, read a few chapters of my book and hit the sack.
