A Checklist for Geezers

Sometimes I question my qualifications as a geezer.

Oh sure.

The hair is white,

Coat & tie is still standard for most days,

Joe Ferrell, Walter Tunis, Joe Gatton, Eric Johnson, Jim Rodgers, Paul Thomas, and Chuck Pogue are all friends of mine.

I haven’t recognized a “Star-Spangled Banner” singer for a decade.

And I can yell “Get offa my lawn” like a banshee.

But sometimes I worry that I’m missing something somewhere.

Then my music mix shuffles to the next selection and by the end of it I realize I’m grinning in complete happiness at Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters’ rendition of “Don’t Fence Me In”.

Punch my ticket. I’m totally validated.
