Another Trip Around the Sun

Thanks to everyone that has taken time to pass along their birthday wishes.  Funny thing about birthdays.  I don’t feel any older than I did yesterday.  Yet Senior Discounts are suddenly a subject of conversation!  When did I get to be as old as my parents?

A couple years ago my brothers & I all got together for a couple days.  My oldest brother had kept all the home movies that my Dad had shot as we grew up.  We sat and laughed and enjoyed the images of our youth.

There was one movie that was shot from a family Christmas get together.  All of us along with all our cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents .  The reel started with some image trickery where-in I touched a blank piece of paper and the date appeared.

The three of us sat there dumbfounded as we realized that we were at that time older than almost everybody in the movie.  Only a few years younger than our grandparents were in the movie.  And they all always seemed SO OLD . . . . . . . . .
