70 laps…

Around the sun.

Glad I made it this far, and I am thankful for the friends and family that have supported me on the trip.

Daughters, ex-FIL, and me.

And, as is typical with my family, the kids are standing in front of their aunt rather than their mother… LOL

And, having spent a week in Kommiefornia, I have to agree with Ramirez on this one…

  5. Well done and there is a whole bunch of living that you have done in that time.

  8. All- Thanks for the sentiments! And Kommiefornia struck last night. Car got egged… sigh… Lovely thing to wake up to and have to clean the windshield before I can drive 2 hours to see my grandson… Grrr

    • Old – I’m guessing someone was ‘offended’ by yer Texas license plates – or you stole their parking spot!
      Many of us have already exceeded our three score and ten and likely are past our ‘best by’ date as well but NOT the expiration date (fortunately 😉

  9. Happy Birthday and congratulations on reaching seventy!
