SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT !!!

By jardinier ·
On Monday April 10, I will turn 65 years of age and become eligble for the Australian Age Pension.

Naturally I will expect to be treated with the respect and reverence due to an authenticated senior citizen. :)

to describe our ambivalent relationship.

Perhaps you can help me out here.

Thanks for your good wishes.

You said that you are at a loss for words to describe our ambivalent relationship.

So am I. But it is interesting, to say the least. Don't you think?

Max

by jardinier In reply to So am I, Julian. . . .

You were the first to wish me a happy birthday. I think that gesture pretty much speaks for itself.

Yes it is interesting. What point would there be in having a discussion with someone who holds identical views?

Let me put it this way. If we didn't respect each other's views -- or the right to hold those views -- we probably wouldn't bother making the effort to flame each other.

My genuine best wishes to you Max in your sincere endeavour to live your life according to the principles you have chosen.

to express joy about your birthday. I mean this from the bottom of my itsy bitsy heart. Thank God there is someone older than me!!

(Really...I hope it's a great day for you.)

Are you planning anything special? 65 is a hallmark.

planning anything special?

by jardinier In reply to Let me be the third

Nope. I don't celebrate birthdays or Christmas.

But I have received some lovely greetings from femail friends in other countries.

All my life I have had this "feeling" or intuition that I will live to about 85.

Assuming that my marriage plans which many peers know about come to fruition, 2006 will almost certainly be the beginning of the best period of my life.
