My birthday is coming around again and I have to admit that I am still dealing with the idea that I am actually a half century old now, plus one in a few days. The whole concept is very weird to me. Not sure why, could be that I am not quite where I thought I would be career wise or that I have as much grey hair as I do, well at least I still have hair! I don't quite have the energy as I did when I was younger, but I think I do pretty well at keeping up the pace. And, there's the fact that my body is "older" too. I won't go into the "fun" medical stuff I have been dealing with since I have covered that "stuff" in previous entries.

What's been fun, but amazing to me, is that I have been reconnecting with people that were special to me many years ago, we're talking 20 to 33 years ago, which makes me wonder, where did the time go? I know, very cliche, but true! But, it is fun to reconnect with these friends that I thought I would never hear from again.

Well, even though it is odd to me to be my age, and given the challenges of late, life is good and getting better. Cheers everyone!

Old time rock and roll?

So, I came up with this quiz today to have some fun at the morning meeting at work today. Now, the majority of the people at the meeting were of the age group that could of known. So, the question that they had a hard time was "What song did George Harrison write and record and was sued for plagiarism?" Tick toc, Tick toc,Tick toc,Tick toc,.........MY SWEET LORD. He was accused by The Chiffons for copying the melody of their song "He's so Fine". And, who could not recall when John Lennon appeared for a whole week on The Mike Douglas Show??? Am I really getting old????? Someone please tell me........
