I Turned 70 Today

To me, turning 50 was saying goodbye to youth (bummer), turning 60 was retirement (yahoo!), and 70 is YIKES!

Three quarters of a century didn’t seem that bad until I downloaded Sailing by Christopher Cross tonight on the way home from dining out. I really like the song so I looked up when I first heard it . . . 1980. Forty years ago!

Those of us in this age bracket all have similar experiences . . . When did I see that movie? I think it was just a few years ago. Well, maybe 5 or 10. And then you discover it was more like 30 years ago.

C’est la vie.

Anyway, Jan & I are still planning future travels . . . 2021 East Coast RV Trip, Tom’s Amtrak Adventure, Jan’s Ireland Visit, . . .

Finally, dined at Cha Bones earlier and had two fine desserts . . .

Triple Berry Tart (Tonight’s Winner)

 

Chocolate Bombay

    Aye! 70 is hitting my sensibility in much the same manner. Where did the time go and how did it happen so quickly? Happy Birthday and enjoy the days ahead.
