"They" are wrong

Sixty is not the new forty; Sixty is the new fifty-nine. Happy Birthday to me.

Yes, I know many of my friends are confused. I am celebrating my birthday on the anniversary of my birth this year, why? Because I'm sixty. I'm neither upset nor depressed, hey, it's a number, but I am happy to be closer to Social Security. Plus, I get to ride the bus for half fare. Tender mercies.

    One of the best things about turning 60 is that you feel the freedom to do whatever the damn you want to. Celebrate your birthday once a year, twice a year, quarterly or even once a month . . . BUT CELEBRATE!!!!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY whenever!
