We ALL Still Love You when you're 64!

Happy Birthday, Sweetie, Susun!

Here's Miss Susun doing her best Rosie The Riveter imitation on the Verde River back when she was 40.  That's when we got together to help oust the sand and gravel operators from the river channel.  Susun's "can do" spirit is contagious and touches every one of her Family & Friends and, of course, Little Yonni, too.  Susun brings her special gifts of happiness and joy to the world every day in every way.

For many years, we've been looking forward to this particular birthday.  Why's that?  Well, today means Miss Susun can now officially use the famous Beatles tune as her theme song this year.  Ah, yes, Sweetie, we all still love you when you're sixty four!

Please join me, if you will, this morning (and throughout the upcoming year) with a stirring rendition of  Beatle Paul McCartney's "When I'm 64."

When I get older, losing my hair,
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me the Valentine,
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine

If I stay out till quarter to three
Wold you lock the door
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four.

You'll be older too,
And if you say the word I could stay with you.

I could be handy mending a fuse
When your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday morning go for a ride

Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
Who could ask for more
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four.

Every summer we can rent a cottage in the Isle of Wight,
if it's not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your knee
Vera, Chuck & Dave

Send me a postcard, drop me a line
Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, wasting away

Give me your answer, fill in a form,
Mine for evermore,
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four

As you know, most teenagers think anyone over 30 is at least a hundred. Tonight Josh said "I can't BELIEVE Susun's 64!! "
Neither can the rest of us. Come on...whoever heard of anyone claiming to be OLDER than they really are?? Sunday's GTG is going to require a driver's license check for proof. Happy Birthday and lotsa love from us and the chivos!
