So, what do I think of it all? Remember a vintage Pennsylvania Dutch saying: Ve grow too soon old and too late schmart! That’s my birthday complaint.
However, I still hike twice a day and swim laps. Another fun activity I’ve continued is posting original articles, photos and cartoons daily on two websites. My old guy opinions and gripes cover travel, politics, war, music, race, religion, money, behavior, sex and anything else that comes to my enfeebled mind.
This birthday reminds me of lyrics of a song introduced in 1946 by Ethel Merman on Broadway in the musical, “Annie Get Your Gun:”
Grandpa Bill gets to thrill
With someone he just married.
Havin’ glee at ninety-three,
Doin’ what comes naturally!
I hope I can still keep doin’ it for another decade or so!
