If I'd planned ahead far enough I would have sent a fire extinguisher.

Thanks all!

It is really great having these wonderful birthday wishes.

Fridays are my special day with my son, Andy. He rides his 3 wheeler while I walk with him to places like BK, Wendy's or McD's, and we have lunch together and walk/ride back. Generally about 3.5 miles.

So, this am I rode to the rec center at 5:20 am (28F with some wind -BRR!), did a spin class for 45 minutes, swam for 45 minutes, and worked out in the weight room for about 30 minutes, then rode my bike back.

I did tell the spin class that I had reached 69 today. I think it is important for these young folks to know that some of us older folks are right there with them, keeping up. I got a round of applause.

About 11:30 I will do the ride/walk thing with Andy.

Then, maybe a nap!

Very happy wishes to you.

I'll have to remember to change what I tell others ... "I know a 68 (now 69) year old that can grind me into the ground."

Thanks.

I have purposely backed off totally from any forum "leadership" or whatever that was I used to think I did. Sadly, the 50+ forum is doing just great without me! Let's one know how unneeded they are, despite any visions of grandeur one might have about themselves.

I know the feeling. Years ago, I built a state of the art professional development department for a large organization (4,000 employees in our division). It was really cool. When I left to begin my consulting practice, I discovered within 6 months it was all a distant memory for people who still worked there. Since I was the third director in a row to leave the organization, when the fourth one (my replacement) left a few months later, they shut everything down and started outsourcing all these internal services.

It was humbling.
