When you hit middle age you really only have two choices: you can get fat and lazy until you roll over and die, or you can can get off your ass and do something, like maybe ride a bike.
I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

It's 45 (F) outside, the high today is supposed to be 59 (F).
Today is my birthday. Hold onto you seats, a little less than an hour ago, I turn 70. Holy Shit!
My sister, my brother, and I cannot stop laughing. Son of a bitch! I can remember sitting in 3rd grade, and 4th grade, in fact most of my school years, thinking this day was so far into the future I would never see it happening. Yet, here it is. I laugh loudly, I'm very opinionated (usually right, but not always), and am eagerly looking forward to the next 70 years. I am not kidding (did you know I'm a bit of a smartass?).
This morning I saw that People magazine has name Chris Evans the Sexiest Man in the world. He's only 41. Do you think he's too young?
In about 1/2 hour, I'm going to be driving down to the Lebanon VA for a physical. Now, how's that for a birthday present to myself?
Yesterday, I cancelled my Sirius XM because my promotion ran out. That $5.99 a month was suddenly replaced with $23.17, or about a little less for what I'd pay for 4 months. Ouch. You have to call to cancel, you can't do it over the internet because they want to try and use another promotion to keep you as a subscriber. Of course, there would be another nasty surprise when that promotion ran out, so I cancelled. I can still listen, but I'll have to deal with commercials. I was beginning to have problems anyway, like with their Top 18 count down, which repeats several times daily. It's a way for them to not have to pay a DJ. Sirius is okay, but not worth the $$$ hassle. It was through Sirius that I got introduced to Matt Maeson. Take a listen. This guy can sing.
It's also Election Day. Will I get a nice Democratic birthday present? I'm hoping so, covered with Blue paper, and topped with a Blue Ribbon electorate. Vote. Vote. Vote. Democracy depends upon it.
Happy Birthday Dave! You sure make 70 look good! Many, many happy returns to you.ReplyDelete
Believe me, turning 70 is like turning 21, except I have to shave a lot more.Delete
Happy Birthday. You are still just a child.ReplyDelete
Thanks, though not quite a child, I did hit puberty a few years ago.Delete
Happy 70th Birthday, Dave!ReplyDelete
Voted early and "contributed" to making your birthday wish come true... straight D.

OMG Happy Birthday!!!ReplyDelete
Seventy? Come on, You can take on Chris Evans, I'm sure. And come back for seconds, you sly fox.
Chris? Yeah, no problem. The big problem with aging for some is that they think they're old. Wrong.Delete
