Yup, that's right. Why at least 26 more to go; because, when I was 22 years old, my dad made me set out 7 goals in life. I have met 6 of those goals and the last one is to live to at least 96 years old.
I must be going through a "remembrance" time. The other morning I woke up and there was a song going through my head that Nat King Cole made famous in 1954. It was a song I HATED! Why was "Hajji Hajji Hajji Baba, Hajji Baba Hajji Baba - always in love" going through my head? I hated the song, I hated the song. Where did this come from? It went through my head all morning.
The next morning I wake up with "A white sport coat and a pink carnation, I am all dressed up for the dance . . . " going through my head. The first song I hear, when my housemate clicks on some oldies music is - yup you guessed it. Is this what happens when you turn into 70?
No biggie plans for today. I wished Aretha Franklin a Happy Birthday as she and I were born a few hours apart and miles away from each other. Daughter is having housemate and I over for BBQ chicken kabobs this afternoon. Son sent a very, very nice birthday card with a nice present enclosed.
Happy Birthday to everyone else celebrating this day in your life.
