This old shoe is hitting the bar

Tomorrow is my birthday-a pretty boring one- 56

Just one more step towards the next decade which is sounding distinctly old and filled with risk. As a nurse I see the worst cancers and chronic diseases in people from 50-70…if….IF….they get past 70 it seems to level off.

So far, so good for me. Slightly overweight and totally grey haired but active and not on any medications, normal blood pressure.

I couldn’t take off from work because everyone else is off but I am picking up my commuting lover from the airport like I do every Thursday night. The difference tonight is that instead of going to the airport in my pajamas and heading straight to bed, he is playing guitar at a bar and I will be joining him.

I think I deserve a drink tonight!! Happy 56th to me!!!
