    I am old enough to have had two successful careers and now starting my third as an engraver. Life is good.
    Happy is the man and happy he alone,
    He who can call today his own.
    He who, secure within can say
    Tomorrow do thy worst for I have lived today.


    I am not sure who wrote that but it has been in my mind for a very long time. Got me through some tough spots (1965 to 1969).

    I started engraving when I was 18. Now I'm 30 and I still don't know half of what I would like to know, lol.

    I just turned 65 but feel a whole lot younger most of the time, but there are times that reminds me of what my old brand inspector partner used to say which was: my mind makes appointments my body can't keep.

    I'm 24, guess I'm half the age of most of you.

    Well Steinar, 48 sounds rather nice right now. I stare 70 in the eye these days and 90 looks a whole lot younger than it used to look.

    Weldon, whatever IT is, my first thought anymore is 'if I could muster that much energy I sure would not want to waste it'!

    I am in prime of life
    ... but i would have told you this ten years earlier, too. I hope, i can say this in 10 or twenty years also. As i have seen, there are many over 60 here - that gives me a lot of hope. Please stay as you are - young and curious - in mind!

    How old am I?
    Last week I had to ask my wife how old I was, that is one clue.
    The second clue is that she has been my 1st wife for 37+ years now.
    I can not remember the third clue.
