I'm celebrating what I'm calling a milestone birthday this month/year. I'm turning 70 on June 17.

Why is it a milestone? Well, even now when I'm still "in my 60s," I don't feel old. I don't feel like 69 is old. But 70. I feel like, when I think, "I'm going to be 70 years old," I'm thinking that I'm going to be old.

I know - 70 is the new 50. And I believe that's correct. When I was a kid, people who were 70 were really old. LOL! But now the people I know who are 70+ are active. They even look younger than they did in the 1960s.

So anyway, where I'd normally ignore my birthdays and definitely not announce them, I'm embracing my 70th birthday - my 70'd orbit of the Sun!

I have a birthday wish list on Amazon, but I made it as more of a joke than anything else. But if you want to buy me something, here's the URL: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2MDKI8HMS0DNO?ref_=wl_share

I hope that you have a great celebration day Suzie. :-)

After the last week I'm feeling years older today. :-(

I think that I also have 1 of those occasions coming up very soon, now what date was that again?

Cheers.

Happy 70th Birthday!!!
70 is a milestone. Guess we need to change the saying "Don't Trust anyone over 30" to " Don't Trust anyone over 80"

I got a bit to go before I reach this milestone. But the miles ahead of you are hopefully better.

Congratulations, Suzie. I hit that milestone last year while we were in Florida. There is nothing to worry about, it's just a number.
Happy Crunching,

Graham

Congratulations Suzie-Q on your upcoming 70'th trip on earth around the sun.

May you have many more trips around the sun,

Looking over your Amazon wishlist, some one has a liking for sweets and chocolate.

To paraphrase Homer Simpson: "MMMM.... Chocolate." (drooing all over the place)

May your wishlist come true.

Congrats, Susie. As you should know, reading books goes a long way in keeping a person young. Consider, "Your Brain on Art", by
Susan Magsamen and Ivy Ross.

I'm 87, and still looking forward to a few more.

Cheers,

jim

Most, if not all, of those candies contain alcohol. :-D
