My husband (orange shirt in the center) at his 73rd birthday party. Happy Birthday Earl!
There are a few things we old people still love about our birthdays. Well aside from the fact that having a birthday means you are still alive, We can celebrate with reckless abandon...no one knows where we work and our parents are beyond caring where we are at night so we don't get in trouble. Our friends don't object to paying for their own dinner. We get the Thursday night discount. We don't have to put a lot of candles on the cake because the candle place doesn't have that many in stock anyway. When we get up on that morning we are looking down at the grass and not up at the roots...yup, we love birthdays a lot! Happy 73rd Birthday Earl!
