"NOW I'M 64"

And the only way to deal with it, I've decided, is to view it as the new 35!

I've had a pleasant day, with lots of lovely greetings from friends.

Simi sneaked out by herself in the week and got me these jimjams:


No birthday in Sicily is complete without some local pastries, including, as it's Carnevale, some chiacchiere:


Naturally, I have had to play me this song all day and inflict it upon others, having waited 47 years in order to do so. Ah, how impossibly old 64 seemed way back then! The "many years from now" have flown by and, although some of them have been hard, including the last one, I've lived long enough to know that we should be grateful for every one of them.  

Here's to you, dear readers.

I'm glad you had a nice birthday, Pat. As you say when that song came out the thought of being 64 years old seemed they were almost 64 years away! :)

Happy birthday ! I wonder if the Beatles ever thought they'd be 64. few people do when they are young, do they! Nice to hear the song. I like the cartoon version in the movie "Yellow Submarine"
