How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
Satchel Paige

On Saturday the calendar told me it was the first day of my 68th year. My bones seem to think I am a few years older. My brain still feels the same as when I was a young man. We won’t talk about what the mirror and scale are saying.

Do you feel older or younger than what the calendar is saying?
