A Valentine Day Birthday

 
February 14, 1946



Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
Now I'm sixty-four?




Daddy & Me

According to my mother, I was one of nine baby boys delivered by the same physican at the same hospital on Valentine's Day, 1946, who supposedly said to the mothers, "If you ladies had wanted Valentines, I would gladly sent you cards."

The Theme Song of my life:


If there's one more town, I'll be goin'.
A fight for the winnin' I'll be there.
If there's one more song, I'll be singin'.
I'm always goin' but I don't know where
.

MY buddy:

Alex's newest post on his Alexicon blog is really neat!

Now I'm sixty-four?

Whoo!

  14. Happy Birthday, Nick!

    I was never much of a Beatles fan, but that song is one I have always liked. It takes on new meaning at our age, doesn't it? To have those who will always need us, feed us, is so important. Thank goodness for our children, our grandchildren and our friends who hold us dear int heir hearts.

    Wonderful Party!!!

  17. BTW, I love, love, love the Kingston Trio! It occurs to me that since I sold my vinyl collection, I don't have any. Maybe I'll treat myself on my own birthday with a CD or two. :) Thanks for that! I come to your party and go home with a gift!

  39. Lynilu: Thank you. I have been really enjoying this party! For the past 2 months or so my mother must have asked me how old I was going to be today most of the times I have spoken with her. At some point I began humming Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-four?. I guess it simply became the theme of this day.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I hope that your Happy Birthday was the bestest one ever! Did you let Alex have a few licks of frosting?

  41. Lynilu: The Kingston Trio was my introduction to "folk music," my inspiration for learning to play the guitar, and ultimately my mentors for stepping out on a stage (or a chair in a coffeehouse or the chancel of a church). One More Town became a part of my repertoire soon after I began singing; I think I recognized it as my "theme song" when I was in my 40s and realized that I had moved towns some 15 times in the first 39 years of my life.

    If there's one more town, I'll be goin'. A fight for the winnin' I'll be there.
    If there's one more song, I'll be singin'. I'm always goin' but I don't know where.


    That same concept regarding change & the unexpected is the inspiration for the words of Ursula K. LeGuin in my header: The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty; not knowing what comes next.

  51. Happy birthday, Reverend Nick. Your life is a blessing to this world.

  52. Puss-in-Boots: Thank you, my dear friend. No, you aren't late. I think that this party should run for a very long time--maybe until I'm 65? Another person born the same time as me? That's wonderful. My first roommate in college was also born on February 14, 1946. His name is Bill and he has become a renowned physician and medical research scientist, whose work has truly benefited the world. Perhaps February 14, 1946 was a good time to be born.
