My sister turns 60 in September. She'd probably agree with you number one choice!

Callie Ann said...

Ha ha ha that is a good one girl

Amazing Gracie said...

I hope no one feels as though I'm cheating them! But so far, the good things have eluded me!

Danielle B. said...

I'm glad you are ;)

It's a FLIP-FLOP World said...

Gracie, thanks for stopping by and leaving your kind words. 60 is not bad at all since I am now 62!! It is just another number and it does not hurt!! One other good thing that you can put on your list...You are getting closer to retirement age; Medicare is going to be helping you soon; you get discounts at the grocery store and at the movies...those are a few you can add...I can try to think of more if my brain could function..((smile))..Sandy

Mags said...

LOL. You're so funny...

I'd say that you might get some pressies, some cards, phone calls, and maybe even cake.

And that's just on the first day of being 60!

And if you're ever in the situation where you can win a million dollars simply by being the fastest person to add the numbers of your age together-you'd win for sure.

0+0=0

Not participating... Well, I'm not far off here, so I won't worry too much about trying to figure things out. Looks like it is going to be a mystery??? Have a great day Gracie and congratulations on the "Rockin' Girl Blogger" award. :)

You are healthy. You have a huband who loves you. You love your husband. You have a roof over your head. You have happy pets. You have a creative blog I love visiting. You are smart. You are sweet. Is that 13 ??? I'm getting so old I forget to count...

I think you need to keep this post in mind and put things on the list as they come along. Just remember that 60 is merely a number and you can be as young as you want to be in your heart and in your mind.

Before you know it, you'll have 60 good reasons and not just 1!

Linda said...

I have your BD on my calendar as June 26. Yes, dear Gracie, I put it on my calendar. Turning 60 is a BIG deal and I'm right there with you.

katherine. said...

I heard from Mo it was your Birthday....Happy Day and Enjoy your next year!

Asara said...

You're only as old as you feel, Gracie, my dear! *HUGS*

Travis said...

Age is only a number honey!

maiylah said...

madame x said...

Don't know how I got on your site... but Happy Birthday!

from someone older than you...

You have some great friends here

that Morgen is a hoot!

Marilyn said...

This was funny but I thought you could use some cheering up.

Happy Birthday.

2)It's an even number. 3)You're old enough to drink. 4)You don't have to wear those stupid baggy jeans to look cool like the kids are forced to. 5)You get your own section on the menu and nobody makes you use it. 6)Probably nobody will believe you're old enough to use it. 7)Nobody will ask where your parents are when you go to a rated R movie. 8)If you add the digits of your age you get six, which is about the age kids get to go to kindergarten, and this is a good enough excuse to stop every afternoon for a milk and cookie break. 9) You've been around just long enough to have a really great vocabulary ready for those rude telemarketer guys (I'm hoping this one is true because I always wish I had better words for them). 10)Sextogenarian sounds naughty. 11) If you want you can give advice to anybody 59 or younger and use the phrase, "when I was your age". 12) Ski areas have supper great discounts... I was thinking of getting a fake ID. 13) They'll let you into the casinos in Vegas... last time I was there I was too young.
