Nothing would surprise me!

OK guys, time to admit I'm pulling your leg. Here's the international version. Let's get full of fun in 2014. (Anything to forget age!)

P.S. I like to think I look a lot better than that old dame, but maybe not.

I wondered ~ didn't you mention you had reddish hair?

Well, what are you going to do next? We already know you are just an immature fun-loving KID.
A lot of us have that "kid" inside us but it often gets squished down. Good for you for letting the KID shine though!

Yes, that's why I thought you'd believe me. The ad was just what I needed to lighten up. That said, this is my final day as 64.

Thank you! The good hearts of people are what makes a difference. I confess to still feeling some trepidation over the landmark (24 hours to go), but the people in my real-time life and those here on CD who have stuck together over time to discuss, digress, argue, banter, place on ignore and then take back off, and return to almost daily have all made my life richer. I wish we could all meet up at a bar tomorrow night and ring in the New Year together. I bet for all our intriguing differences we would all get along famously, raising our mugs while we sing auld lang syne. What a life we're blessed with, for better or worse at least we're here. Let's hope for "better and best" for 2014, for everyone!

I feel the same way, NEG! I wish we could all meet up, too. We have done that several times on the Charlotte forum (my home forum). It has been several years, though. However, I made some wonderful friends through those meet ups. It is terrific putting names with faces and then getting hooked up in real life. It really expanded my world after moving back to NC and re-learning my way around a city/county that had changed so much.

I don't have an homogenous group of friends. Never have. I celebrate eccentricities and enjoy hearing other points of view and observations on life that are different than mine. I think the Retirement Forum folks would make for a heckuva good cocktail party, lol.

Do not do the count down with trepidation, my friend. It really is just another day, milestone or not . . . and if it helps any at all . . . I have had many friends tell me over the years that no birthday ever "hit them" the way # 65 did.

I remember my best friend's 65th birthday. She was worried about accepting that she was "really 65" and didn't want to look/seem/feel "over the hill." She was anything BUT over the hill! I think it was her wit, her good humor and her graciousness that made her "ageless." And, of course, her warm, beautiful smile.

So. . . just keep smilin'
