When I looked in the mirror this morning, I saw a reflection. That is certainly the start to a very good day.
To quote Calvin from the Calvin and Hobbes strip this morning. "Life is so, so sweet".
72 years ago today, it was grain harvest season in northeastern Wisconsin. Dad needed all the labor he could get, but this new baby in the household was not what he needed at that time. With Mom occupied with the new mouth to feed, Mom was not her usual great help around the farm -- as well as the house. Of course the crying kid thought of no one but himself. He did not know about the harvest season. Just change the diaper. And he seemed to always be hungry.
I don't remember those early years, but I do recall the times when I thought 72 was really old. Compared to 20 years old, it was old.
Time to do a reset on what is old. That would be 90. Reset complete.
Life is so, so sweet.
