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.
