"....and of my threescore years and ten,
Sixty-six will not come again . . ."
The stunned looking two year old at the head of the table is me, celebrating, if that's the word, my second birthday back in 1945.
My, how time flies when you're having fun!
Back in high school, a friend of mine (Sheila King Sanford -where are you?) wrote the following verse:
Three score years and ten,
The allotted span for men.
Early go or lately stay,
On my tombstone will it say
2012 or 2010?
At the time, 2010 didn't even seem like a real date -- more the stuff of science fiction. But here it is.
