There is something we all have in common, if we're turning '70' this year:

I think Roger P. makes the age mark in August, as does my cousin, Gregg A., and my long-time friend David S., gets to stay younger until early November. But when I talked with both Gregg and David on my Birthday this week I told them about the description I have been using for the past 15-20 years when others would ask just how old I was.

I would just tell me I was very old because: "I was born in the first half of the last century!"

Usually I would see a grimace on their face as they tried to figure out just what I said and just how old that would be. They kind of got a kick out of that and said they are going to borrow that quote. I mean, if you tell someone your age, it might sound on the older-side to a lot of them, but if you classify it as I stated, you then sound really old!! We always talk about the age of the older coins we find and other artifacts and such, so if we have turned or will turn '70' this year, then it was 1949 or earlier, so .... we were born in the first-half of the last century.

Now, if your achy bones aren't creaking too much as we ponder our age, let's all make our way to the kitchen and dish up some of out favorite ice cream and enjoy!

That just reminded me: A couple of my high school classmates, from David Douglas H.S. Class of 1967, sent me an e-mail a couple of months ago. We had our 50th Class Reunion two years ago, but I wasn't up to making that trip across state even though I wanted to. But their e-mail was to all class members as they are planning another get-together on August 4th of this year. (I think that's right by maybe I better double check as I might have forgotten.eye rolling smiley

They said we're planning a Birthday Party since all class members either already have, or will, hit the big '70' by the end of the year. I am planning to make that journey. It ought to be more casual and fun.thumbs up I know a lot of the graduates are no longer with us as my graduating class, as I counted the names on the graduating program, numbered ±826. This leaves me two months to plan a few places to go detecting once I make the long and tiring drive, for me, across state.
