When I'm Sixty Four

Saturday, January 25, 2014

When I get older losing my hair
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?

If I'd been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four?

This song came out when I was eighteen, and sixty four was an unimaginable distance away -- I mean old! Well, today I quietly turned 64. Funny, I don't feel old. I just feel like me. My life has turned out nothing like I imagined when I was eighteen. Parts of it were hard. Parts of it were lonely. Often I surprised myself with what I accomplished. Sometimes I disappointed myself.

Some people have one great love in their lives; I've been privileged to have two, very different loves. Each has helped me grow.

Life is good. emoticon

    Belated emoticon . It is funny to watch kids today who think they have it "all figured out". Guess we did too-some things didn't happen as planned but we have made it to our "wise old age" of xx. I turned 65 in August and I had looked forward to it for so long-Hello Medicare!"" Some days I wonder how did I get to be this old and others I wonder why I am only xx!
May you enjoy many more blessed birthdays.

    emoticon When I turned 63 in December it was a shocker. Mostly because like you I did not feel any different. I still feel like I am 18 inside only perhaps a bit wiser. Joining the local Senior Center last year was also difficult for me. I want to use their gym for free but I hated to admit I was in my 60's. LOL. The good news is while volunteering for the local museum an acquaintance asked what I was doing these days. When he heard I was retired he looked shocked. I asked him what was wrong. He said I looked way too young to be retired. emoticon Made my day!
