Age is Relative

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today is Dad's 67th birthday. Most of my friends have parents in their 70's or 80's or beyond, so this seems young to me. In the picture below, he is the Dutchman to the far right.

Today in Celeryville, he said 5 different groups of people sang Happy Birthday to him!!! It was a big event for sure. I remember when he turned 50, all the signs in town said, "50 isn't old if you're a tree." So yes, it's all in how you look at it.

Speaking of "Oma Boyer sayings" Dad looks like the "cat that swallowed the canary" in this picture!

I thought so too and wondered what was going on.

You are right 67 is young. I like the picture it is a keepsake. Speaking of sayings "your always young at heart".
