A birthday

I asked the birthday boy some questions.

How do you feel?   old
Do you feel older today than yesterday?  yes
What do you attribute your longevity to?  Clean living, coffee and Fritos
What time of day were you born?  Don't remember  3 AM is a guess 5:05 AM is the correct time
How much did you weigh? No guess  He weighed 6 pounds 8 ounces

Far Guy in 1952 when he was 2 years old.  He looks pretty innocent in this photo...almost angelic in fact.  It was about this time that he began to explore his surroundings...and nearly drove his Mother crazy.

I am trying to wrap  my head around the fact that my husband turns 70 today.  Someone told me that 70 is the new 50...  ha that remains to be seen.

I stalked him with my camera yesterday.  Happy Birthday old guy!
His quote for the day "I survived the 60's and my 60's."

  1. I love that 60's quote. I feel the same way. The kids today have no idea. My ex turned 70 this year. We would have been married 44 years on Valentine's Day. Too bad he was such a jerk. We made some nice kids though.

    1. Hi farm buddy, If we lived in your area I am certain we would already have a puppy! But sadly since we are waiting for the transplant it would not be fair to a puppy to get one and kennel him/her for four months...

  21. Happy Birthday Far Guy! I remember turning 70...it didn't seem possible. That was 7 years ago. Like Diane said, the 70's have not been my favorite years either. Far Guy's answers to your questions made me laugh. Sounds a lot like Dan.
