Happy Birthday...
FWIW, the happiness quotient doesn't have to change in the coming years. Except for the fine arts part, you've mirrored my own thoughts (though 12 years later), and I wish you more of what you have today.

The health and mental alertness parts are most important.

"Life is Good!" The relative freedom from worry brings more ability to cope with, understand and appreciate the joy of independence.

Today... The first day of the rest of your life.

Kindest regards...

Happy birthday W2R! Turning 65 really is a milestone but maybe not a welcome one. Who could have imagined this so many years ago, I'm not far behind you, though I sure agree that 70 is another milestone and I'd call that one a lot worse than 65 but better than the alternative as you point out!

Instead of traveling, I love staying at home, in an familiar, predictable environment that I control and that is exactly what I want. I do appreciate the wonders and beauty of the world, but to me that is what the internet is for.
to which I'd add and television too.

I always enjoy reading your posts and you have the most beautiful avatars on the ER forum!

Happy Birthday W2R! Every time you post it is so common sense and comforting. You seem so completely comfortable in your skin, time and place. Best wishes for the future.

Another belated Happy Birthday.

I just turned 65 this year and the Medicare present was the best. I'm shocked how well the costs went down over what I was paying for health insurance when I was just a kid. And now I can legally claim that lower cost of Round Table pizza.

Congratulations, W2R! I have enjoyed reading and have benefited from your posts over the years. And I wish the restaurants around here were as inexpensive as yours are in N.O. !!

Happy Belated Birthday. I truly enjoyed reading your post. I won't be surprised to find myself traveling less as the years go by.

I'm a little late but didn't want to miss the chance to wish you a Happy Birthday. I always look forward to reading your posts and the "random thoughts" was another gem.


Cheers!
