TURNING 59and OTHER RANDOM 50s

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate TURNING 59. He is turning 59 in 2008. April 18. Born in 1949. That’s heading into 60 years of age and this is the REHEARSAL. He is a fulltime Muso PhD Student at 59. They both have long hair and the original dropping out seems to be upon them again.

So let’s make a deal together
We’ll use the same party line
You’re a smidgin’ over 21 (You’re a little under 21)
I’m a tad over 39 (I’m not quite 39)

And bringing Granny into the ruse

I heard about your mother’s deal
I’ll go along with it, that’s fine
Now, raise your arm and swear this oath
“My Grandma’s 59”

For all the advances in medicine, there is still no cure for the common birthday.

William Shakespeare
Have you not a moist eye, a dry hand, a yellow cheek, a white beard, a decreasing leg, an increasing belly? Is not your voice broken, your wind short, your chin double, your wit single, and every part about you blasted with antiquity?

Lewis Carroll
There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents and only one for birthday presents, you know.

Enough of all these insults
I do hope you realize
How highly you’re respected
How kind you are, and wise

The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.

Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young.

Just because you’re 59,
Don’t despair, oh no
Overnight you won’t discover
You’ve lost your get up and go.
Nor will you become all wrinkled,
Nor ache from head to toe.
So even though you’re ripening
Don’t regard it as a blow,
You won’t suddenly look decrepit ….

…Cos that happened long ago!!
