I had a nice celebration of my 65 th birthday when I was in Florida. We drove to Gainesville, toured the museums, and had a great dinner at Harry's Seafood Bar and Grille. Harry's is a "New Orleans Style Restaurant" and I had a plate of the best Jambalaya that I have ever tasted. After dinner we attended a concert on campus of the college accappela group; "No Southern Accent". They put on a terrific show.
The truth is, I don't feel very old. Most of the time. But every once in awhile something comes up and I realize how much older I am then some others. For instance, the boys and girls on "American Idol' were assigned the task this week of singing from the John Lennon and Paul McCartney songbooks. Many of the contestants talked about their unfamiliarity with the Beatle's and their music. What? I forget how much tiome has passed. In my mind the Beatle's are still contemporary. I guess I am getting old.
