Promises of a great day and 64 candles...


A new, and beautiful day, with a sky like this, and rosy pink roseate spoonbills to set off the morning at sunrise!

roseate spoonbills




In part, these are lyrics from a Beatles' song....


If I'd been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door,
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?

Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?

Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for evermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?


...guess who's 64 today?
