Playing with a deck of 51...

One of the earliest songs I remember playing on the radio as a child spoke of playing solitaire with one of those...I still have that mahogany cased Motorola. "How Much is that Doggy in the Window"... Peggy Lee's "Fever"...they all take me back to boyhood instantly.

51 has snuck up on me; 50 didn't bother me, there was kind of a top of the world feeling to it that I loved! Now there's some "going down the other side" of the "hill" involved. Knowing that I may outlive the polar ice cap doesn't help a bit; I never in my life dreamed that would happen in my grandkids lifetimes, let alone my own!

So as I sneak up on 2007, I reflect on the past 50 years and hope that in another 50 we are all still here gathered in our cyber circle. May 2007 bring you each Joy, Hope and Happiness!

The ice caps--I know! I feel the exact same way.

But we get a new year anyway, and I hope it's a splendid one, especially for you.

I often read your comments on other blogs. From your words, you seem like you have a warm and generous spirit. It is wonderful to see. I'm also at some crossroads, looking back at one half of my life, and looking forward to the second half. Happy New Year to you.
