Well, turned the big 65 today and officially fit in now with all the old farts here in the retirement mecca of Sebring FL. Ever since we came up here from Palm Beach County back in '82 so that the daughters who were entering middle school could have a little more of a small-town atmosphere instead of the big city where things were already a little rougher by that stage of schooling, I've been telling my wife for all these years that when they're through school we would move on to a place more to our liking and where most of the residents weren't in their 7th 8th or 9th decades...
But those girls are now 45 and 47 and here we still are...now firmly fitting into the Q-Tip profile. Man, life happens before you know it. But it could be worse, we are comfortable and the three kids (added a son back in the 80's) and grandkids are all within a couple of hours.
Guess I'll go out on the highway and drive 40 in the fast lane with my right blinker on for a while.
Happy Birthday and many more fabulous ones for you two and kin.
