I Don't Feel 49

Today I turned 49. Whew! It's hard to believe that I'm in my last year before the half century mark. Seems like it came so fast... and each year goes by a bit faster.

The photo above was brought to me out of the blue early this morning. A student at the high school where I'm an assistant principal brought it in to show me. I attended a party for his mother when we were both in high school and this picture was taken there. I'd never seen it before today. [That's me, 2nd person in the front row.] It was strange seeing a picture of me for the first time over 30 years after it was taken. And this is the second time in less than a month that it's happened.

Maybe on my 79th birthday someone will bring in a photo of me
taken this decade that I've never before seen. My guess is that it would be a similarly strange experience and that I would end my blog post by saying, I don't feel 79.

I don't feel 49.

Well, sir... I'd like to take this opportunity to say...


and I hope you make the most of it... it's YOUR day and you deserve it.

Remember, to kick back and relax... contemplate and count the many blessings in your life. You'll be glad you did and will be renewed to celebrate next year as you hit the half century mark... in todays day and age, something not achieved as much as it once was...

Wishing you the best as always bro... missed ya in Port St. Lucie... hope to catch up again soon!
