Who says you can never go back again?And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.Mattew 18:3
But what about when you're 64?Is that Blackhawk Golf Course?
Baby it's cold outside. Keep your toes warm.
That's one way to hide the wrinkles.
Terrific! My best to the both of you. But helmets? Full face nonetheless? To skitter down a snowy slope? I guess I'm old school--65 this Sept. In my day we'd suffer concussions, skull fractures and such, and keep on pluggin'.
Who is Meade calling old? Madame, you are younger than Springtime and what a great way to celebrate your sixtieth year - do something you did in your sixth.AA Milne would approve.Hope you're having a wonderful day.
Fun! And I like the post title (and the book).
Althouse missed an opportunity for product placement. The least you readers could do is to pickup a copy via the Althouse link. It's her B-day!You could even donate directly, that way you can help her pay for a new ride.
And, that's an eco-friendly ride.Who needs a stinkin' Volt?
Althouse missed an opportunity for product placement. Ha. I didn't know that existed. I like the book Now We Are Six.Right now I'm reading Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. It's a very quick read. And interesting.
We are told, with age comes wisdom! Are you there yet?Cheers and many more years, together with your Meade!
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away Whoah and I know a man, he came from my hometown He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown He said Dolores, I live in fear My love for you's so overpowering, I'm afraid that I will disappear I know a woman, (who) became a wife These are the very words she uses to describe her life She said a good day ain't got no rain She said a bad day is when I lie in the bed And I think of things that might have been And I know a father who had a son He longed to tell him all the reasons for the things he'd doneHe came a long way just to explain He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping Then he turned around and he headed home again Whoah God only knows, God makes his plan The information's unavailable to the mortal man We're workin' our jobs, collect our pay Believe we're gliding down the highway, when in fact we're slip sliding away
Happy Birthday! Woo hoo! This turned out to be the best party ever.
Meanwhile, Obama gave a memorial speech and a political rally broke out.WTF?
Happy birthday! What a great way to celebrate.Getting a sled for Christmas when I was six is still one of my favorite memories. And apparently, it gives me something to look forward to.
Meade wins the... oh way, let's not go in that direction! Happy Birthday, this is great, I'm five years behind you and it looks like you can still be happy crazy at 60!
Slippery slopes!And some of us still have fun.It's a GRAND world after all.
So did you get a room yet?
Do you guys wear helmets to bed too? It's soft powdery snow. The only way you could get hurt is smacking heads, and that's much more likely in bed. Most serious injuries - especially in those over 60 - happen in the bathroom, so I hope those helmets are donned for every visit, including showers, which are most dangerous of all.
The Royal we... Happy Birthday!
"Ha. I didn't know that existed. I like the book Now We Are Six."I didn't either and hoped I was the first one to make the joke on the old A.A. Milne title, but I'm not surprised I wasn't.
"Getting a sled for Christmas when I was six is still one of my favorite memories."And one of my favorite Christmas memories was when my pink transistor radio replaced my pink plastic plug-in.
The helmets are great! We got them after I hit my head skating, but the goggles are really helpful when the snow is flying in your face and the helmets are warm... with nice earflaps that have special pockets for earphones. Basically, they are snowboarders' helmets. We needed them for the iceboating too.But since we had them, why not use them for sledding? The warning instructions that came with the sled said to wear a helmet. Also, oddly, said not to let the seat catch on fire!
Happy Birthday Althouse. May your head never bump bump bump down the stairs; may your seat never flame.
"But since we had them , why not use them for sledding?"Maybe for the same reason I never used my earplugs, after trying them once with my...perfectly pink transistor radio.Hate to miss a thing.
Gotta LOVE the internet...Not one single excuse to MISS much of anything.
"Also, oddly, said not to let the seat catch on fire!"Then maybe the helmets are on the wrong end.
Silly! Who wears a helmet to a birthday party?
Everybody's a critic.
Yup, its all downhill from here. (But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the ride.)
Ann Althouse said... Also, oddly, said not to let the seat catch on fire!Maybe they were thinking of something else.
"Everybody's a critic."True, Freeman.Apparently part of our human nature.
Hardly the BEST of us though.
Ann, I can't believe I haven't seen this remarked upon already, but you and Rush share the same birthday? Both 60 today. He's in good company. HBD.
"Also, oddly, said not to let the seat catch on fire!"Hot pants.
Two for the tundra.
@Marc I've commented on the shared birthday in previous years. It's also Howard Stern's birthday -- same day but not same year.
Happy birthday, Althouse! God bless and many many more!
Birthdays...When the 1's can out-hoot and out- holler the other 364 of us...."just because".It's a GRAND tradition.And "All points of intersection are valid".
Happy b-day Professor A. Long may you wave.
You know, I did that yesterday on my driveway trying to break up the 1" of ice, but it wasn't nearly as much fun.Happy Birthday, hope to see you posting another ride like that in 10 years.
PSA:Age "60" is the first shortest year on the adult calender. It lasts about 3 months when compared to age "30" - and roughly 26 months when compared to the 1st human solstice, at age "7". The 2nd human "solstice" occurs at age 40, followed by successive mini-solstices during the following mid-years. Until age 60, that is, when the 3rd and final human solstice kicks in. This is when the bottom literally drops out, causing time to really fly.
What an excellent way to spend your birthday. I could never do that -- I'm a Libra.
Don't think there's any way to say this without sounding...uh what's the opposite of condescending but with the same connotation?...but, Meadhouse is so kick ass at 60 it makes me dread aging much less.
Happy Birthday, Ann! I envy your youthfulness. That's what being in love can do, I guess.
"old girl"??He called you "OLD GIRL"?Wow..I guess y'all still got that newlywed thang working for you.Me? I'd end up writing checks to the plastic surgeon. So...it's much less expensive if we don't discuss age.
"Now we are 60."MPH?!? No wonder the helmets. Fine choice of a birthday activity!
