To all of those who are Senior Citizens or who like me is just about to become one

1058 Old Country Club Rd NW

Hi All,

   I’ll be 65 tomorrow and finally eligible for all those senior discounts that begin at 65 to say nothing of having had to pick a Medicare policy.  I remember my 75 year old mother saying that looking in the mirror surprised her because an “old lady” looked back and she didn’t feel old.  And  I read somewhere on the Internet that most people feel themselves 20 years younger than their chronological age.  Personally I think that starts in your 50s when you are beginning to sort of be old, but you definitely don’t feel it.  I don’t feel old most days but some days I think about only having 25 or 30 more years and how fast that will fly by.  And then I think about Global Warming and wonder if the world will be here in 20 or 30 years.  Good Grief.  In the meantime I walked my almost 3 miles daily walk this morning and then went biking on the Greenway with Edwina, my 75 year old neighbor. is a wonderful site dedicated to older folks who celebrate age.  Many make me look like a “spring chicken” as they are in their late 80s or 90s.  is a wonderful video posted recently on their cite. 

So Happy Birthday to me!
