My Thanks to all of You

on April 18, 2020

Of course not all of you knew that today is my birthday.  I recieved messages from several frends and family members,  but no gifts. I am sure they will all come tomorrow. And I did not mind eating my birthday cake alone today. It’s always  better to have your birthday alone than to die before the day. I have received many kind messages from friends and family members and  written down the names of everyone who ignored me. You can send me my presents later.

Strangely enough I don’t feel all that old. My son Alan told me that I should walk inside this building every day and I have ben doing  hat wearing a mask over my face and using a cane for ballance. That is actually a pleasant event. At least I am getting out of my bedroom and away from the cat who likes to sit in my lap all the time.

Being  this old doesn’t feel any different from the previous time. I am still wearing  the same clothes, eating the same food, and I haven’t gained any weight,  The only thing I’ve lost is the ability to spell words correctly.  Even the words that other people write  look wrong to me.

In addition Ive looked out my window many times today. And I plan to have a party next year.I am grateful for being able to send this message and remembering your faces.  May we all survive smart and healthy  for many years to come.
