Dagumit. Reading that made me miss Matlock.
70 is the new 63.
felt like 70 years passed just reading all that.
"Kid Turns 70 and nobody cares"
While I can relate to many of his remarks -- sounds to me like the reason no one cares is because he's so "in" to himself, there's no room for anyone else (or they fell asleep an hour into his monologue). He needs to get out more. While reaching 70 is a "gift" he can celebrate, he probably should have left the essay in his diary.
I Love it!
Sometimes these kinds of internal ramblings are an interesting window into a writer's soul, and the reader discovers that he shares a view. I found this one pretty wordy, but I suspect that at 70, there's a lot of landscape visible through that window.
Age is what you make of it...
James Hylton is gonna race the Duels to get into Daytona.
He is 72 and was NASCAR's Rookie of the year in 66!
Imagine going 191mph with his left blinker on the whole time....kidding!
But I have a hunch I never will be. The kid inside of me is still rambunctious and irrepressible, and just amazed at the wonders of the world revealed every day.
Bump! My father is 70.
At 70, one could be an unusually young and vigorous US Senator. ;)
My dad was born in 1937 too and he was also too young for Korea and too old for Vietnam. He wasn't drafted but he enlisted for a year in the Air Force Reserve and went to Texas.
I read this several times and the only way it makes sense is if the underlined "and" is replaced with "as."
Other than what is likely just a typo, I really like the painting although it has too many brush strokes and not enough swashes of color; worse, I don't have a wall big enough to hang it on.
For the average American male, "middle age" begins at 25 and ends at 50 ...... Give or take a month or two.
A man wrapped up in himself makes a pretty small package.
A lot of good stuff in there. Maybe a little too much stuff, but most of it worth reading.
My father is 71 now, and basically, the only change I've noticed since he turned 70 in 2005 is that he says, "Old Jews don't schlep" a lot more often. He says that one of these days, we'll find him slumped over his Scott stamp catalogues, with his tongs in one hand, and a Lighthouse stock card in the other.
My mother turned 70 less than a month ago. We gifted her with a hot air balloon ride and 5 laps in a stock car at the Irwindale Speedway. She's trying to pick out a good date to do each of these things.
They've both said they refuse to get old. Despite the fact that I'm now 47 years old, they can still embarrass me in public. They say it's to keep me young....
My parents turned 60 last year and I hardly can tell any difference in them between 40 and 60. I hope that they continue to act young. It scares me everytime they have a birthday much more than I am scared when my birthday comes around...38 in May. I just keep hoping that they live forever...
