  Another year
« on: May 07, 2011, 12:30:40 PM »
        This is another post that has nothing to do with guns, but I'll send it on anyway. I turned 70 today and as unlikely as it sounds it feels different. Perhaps it's just symbolic like the old thing from the Bible about "Three score and ten", but for the first time in my life I feel old. On the brighter side, my doctor assures me that I have absolutely no chance of dying young. So at least I beat that rap. I feel better now, my daughter just called to wish me a happy birthday and the sun is coming out for the first time in days, so things look better already. Fairly big day planned so I'd better get started. Thanks, for putting up with my maudlin whining, you guys are the best!     Gene

Congrats and a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GENE  Don't feel old, because it sure beats the alternative.  Do enjoy your day!  Hope you have many more!     :)
