The New 30

Thanks for all the birthday wishes today.  They have been coming in from so many directions that I haven’t been able to keep track of them all. This is a big year for me and most of my classmates.

60, the new 30  (but with meds)*

Now, to the person who sent me this picture…. thanks for the warm thoughts. (Only a fellow funeral director would think to send this).

Get it?

This actually is a coffin, as opposed to a casket, which is what we typically see.  It is based on the shape.  What you observe above is “anthropoidal” in shape, referring to the shape of a human….narrow at the head, wider at the shoulders and narrow at the feet.  (occasionally wider at the hips)   A casket is rectangular.

Another journey around the sun begins.

59 down, ? to go.

Thanks for being part of it so far.

*For the record, except for Motrin for my aches and pains, I take no other meds.

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

    Happy Birthday,Ray! Just remember, age is just a number. What counts is how you live day by day. Being 60 now is different from being 60 many years ago. Just saying.

    I’m cognizant that I feel better at 61 then I did at 58. I’m sure that trend won’t continue, but I’m going to ride that wave as long as I can. Have a great birthday, Ray!
