Happy Birthday Shel! I would never have guessed. I guess that means you can start using the adjective "spritely"... ;-)

Have a great day!

EH?? Could you please use larger font in addressing me, sonny boy? Thanks for the good wishes, Russ.

Sorry I missed this post until now. Happy belated birthday, amigo!

Maybe that's REALLY it -- the one lesson about life: "Screw it, let everybody figure it out for themselves." Maybe most people wouldn't care even if you'd told them.
That's a classic quote. A belated happy birthday, Shel.

Ah grasshopper. You understand!

Happy belated birthday Shel. You look great. I arrived at this site by typing "Turning 60". My 60th birthday is on January 7th 2005 and I wasn't feeling too happy about it. I went to my local library looking for books on the subject. I did find some but it was difficult. However on searching the internet I found lots of good stuff. You sound very positive about turning 60 and that's what I need to hear. Thanks.

I just turned sixty, and feel all the aches and pains also. But guess what, I have just started life over, I have two baby's to bring up. 5 and 6
year olds. SOME OF US HAVE NOT GOT THE GIFT OF LIFE OTHERS HAVE. I can give so many stories of lessons learned and influences in my life, but i have no time. my cards were delt differently.
I GUESS I FEEL UPSET, AND JEALOUS, THAT I CAN'T JUST BE A GRANDMOTHER. I MUST BE A MOTHER AGAIN.
THE ONLY HAPPINESS IS, I LOVE MY GRANDBABY'S MORE
THAN LIFE.

So, Shel, like so many others I googled "turning 60" and there was your posting. I turn 60 in a few days. You've been 60 for almost a year now . . . anything to add to those of us just approaching the milestone? My life is great but there is something about this turning 60 business that has me overwrought! I have a feeling I'll get over it the day after I turn 60 'cuz it'll be so much like any other day.

Only a small observation: Just when you get used to being 60, you will discover its time for your 61st birthday.

I decided that on my 60th birthday I am going to send a card to special friends that have blessed my life. I want to personalize it my writing something I remember about them--maybe when we first met or why I think their friendship means so much to me--a characteristic of theirs that has blessed my life. Yes, there were times when I may not have appreciated them as much--even may have gotten mad at them, but this is what life iks all about....sharing the good times and the bad. Lifeis good even at 60!

Hey, nothing sad about turning 60, after all we've earned it! It just makes us better people and life more enjoyable from here on out!

I turn 60 today (14th May 2007). And I told my wife this morning that this is easily my BEST birthday ever. I am happy. I have lived well. Maybe I could have done more in terms of accomplishment. But I am satisfied with what I have done and I am contented. I am bolder though more peaceful and this, somehow, is not a contradiction. I am afraid of less things and more free to be open and true to myself. I have less to hide and more to enjoy. God is good to me.
