Getting Old

I have been deluding myself that I am middle age for several years now. Alas, today is my Sixty-Ninth birthday. I figure next year when I turn seventy I will no longer be able to deny that I am old. On the other hand, getting old is better than the alternative.

Went to the VA yesterday and all good indications. PSA coming back down, all other tests in the green. They claim I'll be a burden on them for some time to come, which is good news for me.

Hopefully, I will have an interactive 69th Birthday Party, but prospects are looking dim at this time. Well, It's Potato Salad Day at the Wheel, so I gotta go.

Happy Birthday, Herb.... many many more...
so you are two years older than I am...hummmmm...
Well, at least you are not older than dirt.... remember the 60's are suppose to be the new 30's.. so you are heading for the new 40's. lol

Herb,

Lisa and I toast your 69th birthday with a glass of cranberry juice. (You thought I was going to say something tacky like "Geritol", didn't ya?)

Happy Birthday, O Curmudgeonly One!

Bill & Lisa

Just so you know there are more birthday wishers out there while you are making potato salad - don't want you to miss them.

Sorry you gotta work on your Birthday, Herb, but I hope you have a great one anyway, wish I could be there to toss back a few, and listen to some of your banjo picking.

Happy Birthday, Herb!

I'm not saying why, but when I was in middle school whenever the teacher would say "69" (as in, "Turn to page 69" or "Brent, you almost passed, you scored a 69") all the kids would giggle. Well, some of the kids would giggle. So, 69 is not just old, it's funny. This ought to be a good year. As a regular Bay Views reader, I hope you're going to write right through it. Good luck. ##
