    I was waiting for Nancy at the hairdressers today,its a nice little outside shopping area and i was sitting the sun,
    one of the shops had music playing,Rod Stewart Maggie May,i was back in the early seventies in my twenty's with a few good mates downing beer.
    Life was kind to me and it was always going to be,i would never grow old or get ill,the sun would always shine and we would all stay in touch and be good mates for ever.
    Not complaining i have and still are enjoying life but the realization came over me how much my life has changed since then.

    In six day's I'll turn 54 and what to say, feel in a similar way as Mike. I will tell myself and my friends that I am a lucky boy. Maybe cos I was born on a Sunday, and after crowing up in not good circumstances it turned around. Since the age of 17 I am surrounded with luck, love and great moments.

    Yesterday when I was waiting of my daughter at the hairdresser, this thread came into my mind. Now next month I will be 56 and the last two years changed a lot again in a good way.

    But only my health turned a bit away from good to OK.

    I like what Earl Nightingale once said:

    "Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored."
