To me… I’m 63 today.
All systems are functioning within normal parameters, and I’m a year closer to retirement. I still have my friends and family, and that’s the best gift of all.
Here’s another ’63, not unlike the one we had when I was a kid, and the first car I was allowed to drive, although it was before I got my license. My parents let me put it in the garage every night, which was a real teachable moment: learning to park this behemoth in a garage that was designed for carriages or a Model T.

Happy birthday, Lucy.
To me. Sixty-two, and it’s a rather important birthday: I’m now eligible to begin the retirement process from my job. Don’t plan the party just yet; I’m going into the DROP (Deferred Retirement Option Program) and in five years I’ll leave my job with a monthly pension and an investment account. So gather around on August 31, 2019 for the real party.
Meanwhile, here’s another ’62 that’s still turning heads.
