As It Stands–I’m 60 now and damned surprised that I made it this far!

20090304_9745I have no words of wisdom to share. I’m not sure if I should celebrate or grieve. Reaching 60 – six decades – is a milestone of sorts. It’s not as impressive as 70, 80 , 90…or 100.

I can tell you for sure I never thought I’d live this long. Let’s just say I’ve faced a few challenges along the way, but who hasn’t eh? I think it’s fair to say I try to enjoy every day.

I’m incredibly blessed with family and friends who support and love me. I live with the love of my life, Shirley, who’s always been at my side and is my bride of 35 years. I’m proud of all three of my sons. I love my five grandchildren. I don’t take my friends for granted.

I lead a very quiet life by choice. My pug Millie and I walk every day. I spend at least three hours daily researching subjects for columns. I’m happy…and 60 today.

Congratulations, Dave! Although I have only known you a short time, you have taught me multitudes. For example, I was especially pleased to learn that the Chinese are looking into reports of an Asian bigfoot. And I read it here first! You are one of my absolute favorite bloggers. Please keep up the good work!! HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
