I love it! Yes – that will be the title of my next blog – “Sageing While Ageing” – if I survive this year’s journey along Route 66. Thank you, Shirley MacLaine for the inspiration. I have almost an entire year to prepare and I will be sure and write my remembrances of all the UFOs I have seen in the sky during my lifetime. That is, if I will still remember them then.
Shirley MacLaine and the UFOs hovering over her home have nothing on me. I recollect my first sighting back in 1964, somewhere on the panhandle of Florida. Cliff and I chased it for miles in our Ford Falcon. When we came to a guardhouse at a military installation and asked the sentry about that huge mass of fiery gold hovering over the grounds, he casually claimed it to be the moon. That sighting no longer qualifies as a UFO, unless of course that was another example of those government cover-ups of UFO sightings. Perhaps somewhere along this Route 66 I will encounter more sightings and I will immediately write of them before they vanish from my memory.
If authoress MacLaine objects to me using the title of her soon-to-be best seller as the title of my blog, I can easily change it to “Sageing Whilst Ageing”. Better still perhaps would be “Sagging Whilst Ageing”, or “Sagging Whilst Aching”, either of which would be much closer to reality than “Sageing” anyway.
