I called my dad to wish him a happy birthday - he is 79 this year.  After we shared some info about our aches and injuries,  he  said how weird it is to be staring at 80.  I reflected that I feel pretty weird being a couple of years from 60. 

He said "You're catching up to me!"

Isn't it so true that we eventually end up in closer in our life stages as we get older!

I think it begins at 40. My 40th birthday was the first time I fully processed that yes, even I, would become an old, gray, wrinkled person. I like that we're all pretty much in the boat thereafter. Well, I don't especially like it so much as appreciate that there is one benefit of aging, at least.
