When I'm 64!

Know that Beatles song?

The refrain keeps going, on and on and on, through my head.

My kids would tell you, in jest, that I'm not far off 64! Hah!

But I am wondering about growing older. About life in the future. About what I want to be like and what I don 't want to be.

About facing life without kids.

The Who sang I hope I die before I get old.

And now they are old. Or dead.

For those of The Who still alive, is life what they thought it would be?
Better? Worse? Just different?

My grandmother used to say I hope I die at Christmas and ruin it all for you!

Well, I certainly don 't want to do that! lol!

But I do know that who I am, how I will live will reflect some of the choices that I make now, in my late forties.

Scary, huh?

The saints are the sinners who keep on going. Robert Louis Stevenson

Maybe. Maybe you have to just keep on going, in prayer and love and doing what is right.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who thinks about this!

Cheers, my friend! To hair color, dancing and looking good always - with or without our teeth!

Seems to me, you don't needto worry, you are makin ggoodchoicers now. You exercise, you are active spiritually, and you are raising those boys to be good and Holy men. You are quite the inspiration.
YEA, I think about this too!

Hey, I think about that and I'm only twenty fice! I remember when I was three, four, and five, planning to die in a spectacular bayonet charge at twenty-nine; thirty at the latest. I didn't want to have to deal with ageing even then! Can understand completely what you mean!! (And btw apparently Pete Townshend thinks he has matured artistically and personally as he aged...so there you are).

Well, Pete's experience cheers me up! lol!
