Happy Birthday, Mr. President

The years between fifty and seventy are the hardest. You are always being asked to do more, and you are not yet decrepit enough to turn them down.  ~T.S. Eliot    
Dear readers, are you busier now after the age of 50 than you were in all of the years before?

Oh! to be 50 again!

Once, I thought 50 was ancient.
When I got there, with little fan fare,I found it wasn't so different than being 40.

A decade passed and I'm 60 now. It's a lot different than being 50, I have more aches and pains, but the bottom line is:

I'm really only 18 years-old in my head!
Happy B-Day to all you younguns who hit the half century mark!

Boy, isn't that the case! Your mind says GO! Go! GO! and your body says NO! NO! NO!.

Your body in the eldercare home;
"your body says, GO! GO! GO!
You nurse says:
NO! NO! NO!
