Let's Make A Memory-2016 in Review

As my last posting for 2016- I chose "Let's Make A Memory" as sung by "The McGuire Family".
I also chose this video- as my year has gone by about has fast as it takes to play this song it seems. All photos are from my phone and there is a date by each photo- I did not take enough photos, or post all photos. but I hope you can recognize some photos or relate to many as memories, you also have. It seems photo albums and diaries are a thing of the past- I hope next year you are in more of my photos- and more importantly- hope you are in more of our memories.
Lastly, thank you for those who viewed my blog these past 9 years. (361,000 views) Things change over the years, and new years brings on changes- some I do not even know yet. Most importantly I thank you for your friendship, being part of our memories,  and I want to wish you a Happy New Year that is filled with many happy Memories.

When I'm 94

“This is a wonderful day. I’ve never seen this one before.”
Another Birthday,  is not that bad when you consider the alternative.  And, I am not that old, when you compare it to 94- that is  years from now. Since no man knows when our time will be  up, I am going to enjoy today and count my  blessings. Thanks for  those who helped me get this old and the great memories we share.
"When I am 64" was recorded on December 6th, 1966, by the Beatles. I was 12 years old at the time. I am not sure if I liked the song, as 64 seemed so old at the time. Now 50 years later I will turn 62 on December 6th, 2016. Those 50 years have gone by too fast.  I found a similar song on the internet called "when I am 94" -a parody by Loose Bruce Kerr, that I added some photos of my life to. I have no idea how long I will live- but here is my goal-"I aspire to inspire until I expire."

I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

Life Is Like A roll of Toilet Paper- as you get near the end- it goes twice as fast.
