Thank You For Your Wishes

I want to say “Thank You” to all who took the time to remember my birthday yesterday. Yes, you did overwhelm me… the cards, emails, telephone calls, and Facebook messages all joined in a chorus of smiles from your heart to mine.

imagesTurning the big 70 brings its own set of smiles… My insurance agent tells me if I live to 79 I will lose all my insurance. In other words… die before the nine years are up. My body says, (with a Vincent Price voice) see how you can handle what I have in store for you… ha ha ha. My wife says “What did you say?” My grandchildren say “Aw Papaw, we thought you were 45?” My son says “Be careful… let me do that for you.” My friends ask “How are you doing?” and really want to know… cause they are going through the same aches and pains. One said “You are now officially a member of the “Old Geezer’s Club.”

I looked back and was amazed to see what was happening in 1947. It may help explain somethings about me???

Maybe we will see James Howell at the store?

Let’s see, alien landing, CIA, Cold War, Dead Sea Scrolls, Jackie Robinson, First computer bug, all add up to a Miracle on 34th Street… Yep, that’s me… spaced out at times, a bit buggy, somewhat secretive – especially with those choosing to stand opposed, belief in equality for all people, but my miracles have been on all streets.

Thank you for sharing your wishes with me… it really made my day even brighter!!!

Grace and Peace

  1. Happy 7-0. Day after tomorrow I will be 7-9. 70 was my first that astonished me. unfortunately after 65 I have aged more rapidly every year. happy to be here walking, even if uncertainly at times. Take care of yourself and Shirley–actually we take care of each other don’t we?
