Howdy, friends and neighbors. If you notice in my bio to the right, a digit in my age has changed. Yes, I am a year older. Am I mortified? Feeling old? Feeling sick? No, to all of the above. My Papa (grandfather) had a story he told about one time when he was in his late 80s and went to sing and play his saw at a nursing home. A old man was there and was moaning and groaning about being old. Papa asked him "Well, how old are you?" and the man said 65. Papa said, "I am 89 and I don't feel old." Papa died in July 2000 just a few months shy of 97. He remained very active until about the last year or so before he died. He lived a very good life and so I try to practice his philosophy of feeling good about yourself no matter what your age is. I feel fortunate and blessed to be alive and healthy.
Happy Birthday to Me
