Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Two days ago was my Grandma Mower's 60th birthday. Because she was working we got together tonight at Aunt Kristin's to celebrate the big day. The 60's aren't anything to be afraid of:

Life Begins at 60

Can we expect happiness and success after 60? We can if history is any indicator. Consider the following examples.

at 62
In 1885, Louis Pasteur gives the first injection against rabies.
In 1969, John Wayne ("The Duke") wins an oscar for True Grit.

at 64
In 1940, Winston Churchill becomes Prime Minister of Great Britain proving that courage is not reserved for the young. Vows Churchill, "We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender."

at 68
In 1966 Lillian Carter, President Carter's mother, joins the Peace Corps and spends the next two years working as a nurse near Bombay, India.

So you go Grandma! Happy Birthday!
