Down the Backstretch

Well, who'd have guessed?  No one will be more surprised than I but I reach the three-quarter post today--my 75th birthday.  I hardly expected to be alive at this age, saying nothing of solvent and healthy.   A nice wife helps promote the general mood of gemütlichkeit.  More, they still pay me to yell at 25-year-olds, and how cool is that?

Afterthought: But I remember now that the "happiest age" is supposed to be 74.  Uh oh.

Further Afterthought:

Solon: Count no man fortunate until he is dead.

Buce: Shut up, Solon.

Happy day from Germany, too. Where did you find the "ü" on your keyboard?

Buce said...

Well, ü found it on yours, not so? For me, the most convenient way is to cut-and-paste from the Wiki definition. Helped me a lot last summer when I was reporting from Łódź.
