  • A Birthday Observation

    Yesterday I had another birthday (not that anyone noticed); it was one of those numbers that reminds you that you're getting really old.

    And yet, rather than feeling sorry for myself, I thought of all the friends from my youth, who did not make it this far. There are a lot of them, and I'm sure I don't know why.

    We all grow old--it's inevitable. Some will tell you it's a hard thing, but it's harder still not to grow old, don't you think? So the next time you're feeling your age, maybe take a look around, and see who else is still in the race.

    After all, "Always look on the bright side of life..."

      A belated birthday to you. I have to admit that I recently turned 33 and don't feel it, age is truly all in the mind. Also, as you said, it's good to remember that at least one is still around to enjoy wonderful experiences.

          Remember, you're still on probation. Don't want to end up on Dateline again do you?

            The stalking charges were dropped. I'm good to go.

            Is the 16th B-day part-a going to be filmed by MTV? You should totally do a dance # to show everyone how good you are.

                Happy Bday Wotan.

                I know what you mean about birthdays reminding you of things. I just hate getting older, but as they say, it is better than the alternative!

                    Birthdays remind you that you aren't dead, but closer to the finish line.

                    Happy belated Wotan.

                      Thanks, everyone!

                      I guess it just felt strange to think that of the four guys I was closest to growing up, three are now dead, and have been for some time. Which sort of makes one wonder why they didn't make it, and I have. It's one of life's mysteries, I guess, but despite what's happened, I'm certainly not complaining!
