What happens on the eve of your 65th Birthday?



When I retire

Will I be too old to hire


Hey, I am still alive

Fifty years experience gained

Confidence and ability never waned

Mentor, Expert, Sage

Evident at my age

When I retire

Will I be too old to hire?

I agree with Ron.

The answer in one word: yes. In the workforce, experience and wisdom doesn't count anymore, you must be able to multitask and pick up on the latest whiz bang that is going to change the world.

My answer: volunteer. When you do good work for no compensation you are rewarded many times over by the smiles on everyone's faces that you touch.

I will be seventy 12-21-12, still work hard at my writing every day, and have no fear that the world will end because no one wants to hire me because of my age.
