The big day (August 28th) is coming.
Sixty-five. That's not so old...Is it?

The man says Medicare is one of the good things about turning 65

I say, “If that’s the best he can do it wasn’t worth it to survive

I certainly hope the golden years has much better things to present

I love watching reruns of In the Heat of the night but it will not keep me content

Whatever happened to that South Seas cruise we were going to take?

Or the hours we would spend sunbathing at that mountain lake?

The problem is this time of the year I would rather stay in air conditioned comfort

And of course regular blood tests, medical checkups are of greater import

For exercise I grab my cane and take a short walk

It may be interrupted if I run into a friend with whom I wish to talk

I may spend hours just examining the leaves on the trees

I may get lost in a daydream while watching the birds and the bees

My wife and I used to kiss each other and it led to hours of delight

At our age a quick peck on the cheek and gentle “I love you” seems just about right

However I do have her, my kids and their kids to keep me happy

How my eyes light up when I hear them call me Pappy

it gets that way Lew, I'm sixty and don't want to get any older, my wife and I hug and she goes upstairs and I stay down, it use to be that I would also follow her drooling, but now I be cooling, cause I need retooling, so I pray to the Lord for some understanding schooling

Keep Happy, Pappy; we're only as old as we let ourselves feel.

With Love,
