Age

Today is my birthday.  I am in good health, can pay my bills, have a great family, and there is plenty of spunk left.  On the inside, I am still 19 years old, despite a slightly more weathered exterior.

Have a good day, everyone.

Heck, most people say I'm still 12, so I've got you! Twain's words are so profound, really.

Birdman said...

Oh, btw... Happy B-DAY!

Happy birthday. You have a great outlook that I hope is contagious.

My youngest son, my older son's fiance, Julie, me, Julie's mother, and julie's grandmother all have had or will have milestone birthdays this year.

Although for people our age, I don't think 30 counts as a milestone.

Wonderful finding for such a special day! I totally agree with the quote and with what you say about age! I'm happy to know that we are the same age though;o)
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jack!
And may you always be 19;o)

Have a wonderful time****

A very, very Happy Birthday to you, Jack! And may you have many more!! That is one of my favorite quotes by Mark Twain, whom you know is one of my favorite writers. And it's the perfect quote for the day. Glad all is well in your life, the best blessing of all! Celebrate and enjoy!!!

Bon anniversaire from France!I hope you'll have a sweet day! Remember what the french actress Jeanne Moreau said: "age does not protect you from love. But love protects you from age" !You were surely much loved! :o)

Celebrate your birthday surrounded by those who love you, counting your blessings. I will raise a little toast of wine in your honor this evening.

Bises,

Wishing you a very happy birthday Jack - and many more to come. We do well to count our blessings - and remember too what a blessing you are to others (us included).

Happy Birthday Jack!!
The older I get the more I realize that those little old people you see around still feel like 19 inside! 95 going on 20!

Lois said...

Happy Birthday Jack! I still feel 19, but I'm certainly glad I'm not 19!

cieldequimper said...

Bon anniversaire Jack ! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful day! I feel all of 75 today, lol, but I know I'm 14 inside! :-) Great quote.

Happy Birthday and may you enjoy many many more

Always love Mark Twain's quotes. He definitely had a gift for the written word!

Regina K said...

Happy Birthday, great quote, I know that feeling about age. My mind is still young.

RedPat said...

Oh Jack - I didn't mean you were 95!! At most 39 like Jack Benny! Blogging keeps us all young.

sheila lynch said...

A belated happy birthday Jack, and I know how it is to feel 19 on the inside with a slightly more weathered look on the outside !

EG Wow said...

I hope you had a wonderful birthday, Jack! I can't believe you are 19 because I have been telling people for years that that's how old I am. :))

JM said...

Jack, sorry I didn't visit yesterday... Belated congratulations and here's to many more. Very clever post, Mark Twain was absolutely right.

Tash said...

Woo-hoo!!!! Par-teeeeeeeee!! Wish you a very happy birthday. Spunky Jack...I like it.

Lynette said...

Happy late birthday, Jack! Hope Irene peters out before she gets close to y'all.
