Being 59

being 59
Today is my birthday and I am now in the last year of my fifties. Celebrate with me, have some
being 59
cake.
being 59
The year I was born, 1951, people looked like this but
being 59
in the 1960s things started to change, thankfully. I have been fortunate enough to have lived through some of the most important decades in history. Not everything in my personal life or the World has been good during my time here but it's certainly been interesting and
being 59
being in the company of these ladies, all of whom I can call peers isn't so bad.
being 59
So here's to another 59 which will make me 118. To think, next year I will get a bus pass.

Happy birthday but in the current financial climate I wouldn't rely on the bus pass.

I hope you celebrated with pure abandonment. Celebrate all year long and then throw yourself an extra special birthday next year. I did.
