Just to compete against the spammers (who seem to be out in force at the moment), I would also like to change the subject. 

Just had my 60th birthday party on Saturday night and it was one of the best nights of my life.

I must admit I had trouble accepting 40th and 50th birthdays, but 60 I was actually looking forward to for some time. The idea that I can actually now do exactly as I please (well if the little lady doesn’t object too strongly) is a very rewarding feeling.

The fact that we had made a lucky real estate deal a few years ago probably increases the warm and fuzzy feeling I am experiencing, but nevertheless it is actually a fabulous experience turning 60.

The kids are grown up and the next stage will hopefully be grand-kids. Imagine the joy of kids without the responsibility. Can’t wait!

Not having the worry of a mortgage that hangs over most of us until near retirement. Being able to see something in the shop and buying it without feeling guilty that I was spending to the kids school fees.  Having a few days at Jupiter’s casino proving my method is definitely a winner!

Then there’s the party.  My wife organised it and all I had to do was say who I wanted to come.  She didn’t even make me invite the in-laws!! What a woman! 

Some of my mates from my long career as a rigger I hadn’t seen for 20 years made the long trip.  This ensured lots of man-hugs and a few tears from tough blokes who in their day lanced boils with a pocket knife and had morning tea lying on a 3 inch beam 400 feet off the ground (without a safety harness).

We have all gained a bit of weight and can no longer drink 15 beers but we can still talk the talk and walk the walk. 

Hope this helps if you’re worried about getting older.

Life’s just great at 60.


Online roulette is also very popular in Australia with many of the internet casino brands directly targeting Australians, resulting in a huge choice of roulette sites available to Australians. CasinoReef recommends Ruby Fortune casino as one of the top online roulette casinos available in AUD. For New Zealanders, CasinoKiwi recommends Jackpot city casino as the most popular choice for new Zealanders playing roulette online.
