Two things today:
2) As it happens, today is my birthday. I wouldn’t mention this except that it’s a milestone birthday of sorts: my 65th. So there’s no getting around it. I am now officially an old coot aspiring to geezer status. (I am too modest to hope that I can ever attain full codger-dom.) On the brighter side, I can now be as cranky and cantankerous as I want to be, and if anybody complains, I can say that they’re ageist! This old coot stuff could be fun.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go outside and tell the neighbors’ kids to get off my lawn.
