76 Old Bones

All day long the tune of 76 Trombones has been running through my head with some different lyrics. Try 76 Old Bones. Yes, I am 76. Funny, I donít feel any different that I did yesterday. I hear people say that they feel as they did when they were much younger. I can understand that now. How does 76 feel? I donít know. I donít really feel old. I know that my once excellent memory is not quite what it once was. I canít accomplish as much as I once did but 76 is a whole lot like 75.

I still have a five year plan and perhaps a ten year plan. I am also aware that my plans can change quickly and without warning but I am actually looking forward to the next 20 years, God Willing.
