Say it Ain't So

A I write this, I'm officially 70 years and one day old. I've crossed the threshold. Officially, I'M OLD! There's no getting around it. (Yes, Steve, I've joined you.)
However, the good news is, my father is even older! He's 95 today. Another 15 minutes and we would be sharing birth days. I just wouldn't wait back in '43.
And no, don't feel obligated to wish me a happy belated one.
I've already given myself a birthday present. Bought a new Toyota Tacoma snappy red truck two weeks ago. It's been 9 years with "old blue". Time to update. Mid-life crisis?

And "say it ain't so" that there's 10" of snow with 3' drifts across my driveway. NOOOOOOOOOO! How can mother nature play such a mean trick? My new truck is eager to get out and see the world--but until I shovel my way out, it stays put. Instead of digging in the dirt, I'm digging in the snow. Boo hiss.

Other than that, all is well "back home in Indiana". News of my farm kids will follow in about a month.
Be well, old friends, and take care.

OOO I wondered if you would read that post. I know how you feel though. And really, we just do not know...

You are only as old as you feel. 70 is the new 60. What does that even mean? Good to hear from you. We only got flurries when you got dumped on the other day.

Hey, best wishes to you AND your new red truck!! Stick your head into mybloggers more often, buddy.

I wonder how my truck would blend in with the red rocks of Utah? Perhaps I should investigate. Sorry, but I really don't miss MyBloggers--although I do miss you.

Takes one to know one ("frumpy")! My big trip this year is to Greece, late Sept. Otherwise, I think I'll hang around Indiana. You?

Well I don't care what you say, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! We are getting snow right now as well. Sigh. But Kraymer had a ton of fun playing in it this morning so I guess that makes it all worthwhile. Great to hear from you!

I read your "baptism" post and gazed at your photo. Wow, won't be long!
No advice. To me, baptism is a huge farce. It matters zilch.
