That's right! Your's Truly had a birthday today, and I'm about as close to the Four Oh as you can get, without actually being there.
Strange, but I've noticed that I pay attention to age a little more than I did in the past. I'm not real sure where that's coming from. I have always been a strong believer in age as a state of mind. Perhaps that is a thought for the youthful; when age truly isn't a concern, unless you're wishing you were old enough to buy a beer.
I was never in any hurry to grow up, and if you ask my wife, she'll tell you I'm still on that path.
Oh well, another year to be me.... as long as old age let's me.
