I am not old.
I cannot be old, though threescore years and ten have wasted away,
like a tale that is told, the lives of other men:
I am not old; though friends and foes alike have gone to their graves,
And left me alone to my joys or my woes,
As a rock in the midst of the waves.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
So there ya go. The sun has set on my 60s. Any time now I'm likely to be sensible.
I'm happy enough with my age, it's been a lot of fun getting here and I'm certainly happy with the day.
Yesterday I caught the culprit, or at least one of the culprits, that have been killing my chickens. Thanks to the SPCA for the trap and to DOC staff for tips on trapping ferral cats. Last year to celebrate my birthday I went in a boat under the Iguacu Falls in Brasil, this year I trapped a cat. Can't say my life lacks diversity!
Here are a few of the sights I enjoyed on 'my' day.
Who wouldn't be happy?
