The Queen's Meme celebrates #60 ~ The 60 Meme

The Queen's Meme celebrates #60 ~ The 60 Meme
Welcome to the Queen's Meme #60!
Since we are having a meme birthday I thought I'd wax celebratory. Do you mind?
Let's walk in the footsteps of one Mark Twain, who said..."
"When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it happened or not."

So imagine you're 60 even if you're not and answer the questions.
There will be cake.
I promise.

1. When I'm 60 I hope to know more about love and less about hate.

2. At my 60th birthday party, I can only invite 3 people. They are.... my husband, my sister and myself.

3. "To me old age is always fifteen years older than I am" said Bernard Baruch.
What do you consider old age?

Old age is when you stop living and loving. Some of my best friends are fifteen years or more older than me, but they are not old. I even have a dear friend that is ninety and she is not old, she can still touch her toes.

4. Tom Stoppard was overheard saying, "Age is a high price to pay for maturity."
What does "maturity" mean to you at any age?

I hate to tell you, but I don't think age has anything to do with marurity. I have seen a lot of older folks and they didn't have a clue what maturity was about. I have also seen young kids more maturer than older folks. I think life and living brings maturity to oneself.

5. Joan Rivers said "Looking fifty is great… if you're sixty."
Do you worry about age lines and wrinkles?
How do you plan to preserve your wonderful selves?

I think I am just blessed to look pretty good for my age. I am not going to worry about age lines or wrinkles. Life is to be lived and enjoyed. It took me forever to learn how to be myself and I am not going to change a thing. I plan on smiling and laughing a lot.

6. Comment on this quote by Euripides
"If we could be twice young and twice old we could correct all our mistakes."

Maybe we are going to make mistakes and it will take forever to learn from those mistakes, but the main thing is that we learn. Like hindsight is 20/20.

7. Pablo Picasso said, "One starts to get young at the age of sixty and then it's too late."
What do you do now to stay young and enjoy your life?

A good attitude and exercise and lots of laughter.
Let's have some cake.

I told you there would be cake!
