I’m 87 Years Old Today . . .

with one comment

. . . and it’s been a marvelous trip.

No one has been luckier than I starting with having parents who were simply giving, friends galore who were worth more than I realized at the time, a family that supported me through my errors, a career that allowed me to learn something new every day, and genes that have supported my health over the several rocky decades I traveled.

This day, and every other day of the year, is one to be thankful for and to be enjoyed to build more memories.

And thank you to everyone who helped me get here.

Talking with Cris on her birthday yesterday …

… burst a balloon of memories like the hole left in our home when she went off to graduate school, toddler tumbling on the living-room floor with her two younger brothers, a fun and proud Detroit Vanguard Theater afternoon ruined by an officiousCanadiancustomsofficer (all one word), and abruptly stopping laughing and giggling when she realized she’d taken her first steps on her own in a small apartment we rented in another galaxy.

There were more but that’s how they started.

. . . my 83rd birthday.




And most folks still ask: “How does it feel to be 83 (or wotever age you hit)?”

My answer is still the same — “Short and fat.”

… as I did mine this week, but the days in between are pretty special, too.
