I PICK DOOR NUMBER ONE

I guess it's all in the way you look at things. See, I figure that we have a choice...either get old...or die. I pick door number one.

Now don't get me wrong. Aging is not easy. And as Bubbie Channah often says, it's not for sissies. And it ain't the golden years...it's the rusty years.

But wow. They are great years. When I turned 40 I found life was better than in the 30's. The same for the 50's and now I'm in my 60's. (I will tell you my age...don't ask how much I weigh...sigh).

So, this aches, and that isn't working so good. I now wear glasses all the time. I'm fighting to keep my teeth from being in a glass at night. My hair isn't as thick as it used to be. My thighs are thicker.

But, who cares? I can still tie my shoes by myself and have the energy to play with my babies, enjoy my kids and have fun with my friends. My cup runneth over.

Yesterday I received an email with the list below. Hell! I'm a spring chicken!

You can make anyone laugh any day of the week.

But you know what-no matter how old you get, at least you are still enjoying life. ISn't that all that matters?

Shalom and have a good rest of the week-perez

You know, what bothers me is that I recognize these people.

And no, I do NOT want to know how old Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen are.

I DO NOT WANT TO KNOW!

Deborah Kerr was born in 1821...September, I believe. Hers is a firm date, with no fudging or controversy. Her earliest films in England are among her best work.

Deborah Kerr was born in 1921, which means she is 85, not 95.
