today


"You can knit a sweater by the fireside

Sunday mornings go for a ride,

Doing the garden, digging the weeds,

Who could ask for more.

Will you still need me,

will you still feed me,

When i'm sixty-four."


Well, it is me knitting, and I think when I first heard this I never could imagine actually getting here.

What a giveaway!

But age is an attitude of mind, and in that respect, you are but a youngster. I am, however, worried about the "fireside" bit.

Many Happy Returns, Jordi! May your day be filled with love and sunshine.

I guess I would have to do serious alterations to have a fireside...

I decided I might as well go for it, since there are no good songs about the next few years... When I'm 72 just doesn't have the same ring, does it!

...and I do not know of one for 66.

We will celebrate with Dim Sum.

Happy Birthday!
