Today is my birthday. I am 68. Not really thrilled about that part, though

getting older is better than not getting older.

15. Happy birthday wishes.

I am 65 and my family is not big on celebrating birthdays but I am. For many years I tolerated this attitude but no more. I now demand something special for my day, even if itís just dinner at the place of my choice.

Hope you find whatever you want on this day.

I know what you mean. I will be 65 in December. I just got my SS set up and Medicare is almost taken care of. I don't know what it is about getting this old that is so odd to me. I understand you exactly.

18. Vertical and ventilating is a good thing.

When people say "It's good to see you." I reply, "It's good to be seen - It's better to be seen than viewed."

Happy birthday!

19. Congrats!!

I just "became" 69 four days ago. Spent it with long time friends.. I mean LONG time friends.
One I met when I was 5, the others were an old girlfriend when we were 15, a ham radio buddy I met when 16.. Life is good upright and fogging a mirror... I'm looking at a new motorcycle..... can you have a mid live crisis at 70??

22. August 18, 1950 really?

We're born on the exact same day! Happy birthday, fellow Leo.

I'm feeling really low today, but I think I could easily still pass for 67.

That's the way I try to deal with the aging process. Although after my last birthday I'm having some trouble coming to grips with my age. It may have to do with the increase of aching muscles and stiffness.

But I'm happy to be alive and in good health. My heart just breaks for some DU'ers when I read their posts about their health issues. It certainly makes me feel very fortunate.

I'll be hitting 68 in December, Hubby did in June, and it seems fine! He still runs his mile and a half, and I...well, I shop and cook and sew and whatever the hell I want.
