  1. Nicely done. I know a lot of folks who turn (have turned) 60 this year.

  2. 60 is a rather magical number eh? smiles.

  3. Thanks Hilary! I suppose it appears I was writing from that perspective, however, I have some years to go yet.

    Brian- It does show up in lots of equations, doesn't it.

  4. I think 60 is also the number of times I have to tell my kids to stop doing something before they actually listen to me. :-)

  5. Nicely written, very clever post.
    Thank you so much for putting so much thought into this little gem.
    Loved your 55
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  6. Hi Linda .. 60 - nowadays the middle age?! Seems good to me .. lots ahead of me .. not quite another 60 perhaps! Cheers enjoy the weekend .. Hilary

  7. Nicky- I can just talking to a brick wall, only the wall pays more attention?

    G-Man- Thank you for such a thoughtful comment. It did take a few minutes to make it fit.

    Hilary- 60 as the new middle age...good to know as I continue to move in that direction. There's still a lot ahead of me, too.

  8. I'm one of the folks Hilary knows.

    60's not so scary. It's actually pretty interesting. In mostly good ways. ;)

  9. Meleah- Thank you!

    Frank- I'm glad to know it's interesting and maybe not so scary.
