So many things go through your head when you approach a major birthday. Once upon a time, many considered 62 as the age to retire early. Yet, in many ways, I feel as if I am just getting started. I must admit, though, that the years have affected me in many ways. Just today I found myself sitting in a doctor’s office to get checked out due to an injury that I had the day before. Yep, even after making a similar maneuver (many many times) while mowing my yard, I had a misstep and fell backwards onto a concrete culvert at the corner of my yard. Ouch! I’m banged up and scraped and the right shoulder is not good… but the hope is that I only have some strained tendons or ligaments, not a torn rotator cup.
Ok, injured or not (and I’ll be OK), I felt compelled to write this little article and share a few random photos from the past. If you happen to want to know the story that accompanies a photo, shoot me a message or ask me directly if you are a local. Some of them are obvious and some are a bit of a mystery 🙂
So, as I stare into the eye of my 62nd birthday, here are a few thoughts that have cycled through my mind this week (so far). FYI, my actual birthday is July 28th – this Thursday. Now, onto my ramblings:
Thanks for indulging me. I could go on and on, but let’s get to the random sampling of photos… shall we? Remember, every picture tells a story 😉
