| Alright, you can’t read that, or maybe read it but not understand it. It’s in German, because that was how the song was named. It means that at 66 years life is starting. |
It was sung by a Norwegian girl/lady who became famous first in Germany after winning a song contest in Oslo, Norway. Her name is Wenche Myhre. Just in case you should happen to meet her one day. Then you can say “nice meeting you Ms. Myhre. I’ve read a lot about you. Always pleases a person to hear that, you know.
But I’m not gonna write a whole lot about Wenche Myhre. You can look her up on Wikipedia. Quite a good looking gal, by the way. Of course, she’s born in 1947. That means she is 5 years my senior. So she has one more year, before life is starting for her.
I wonder what she thinks of that song today. But for some people retiring at that age the story might prove true. Though it’s kind of sad. Think about it. You have strived for 40+ years to make a living, raised the kids, tried to be an upstanding citizen and finally, at 66yrs you find out, life has not been kind to you and you finally get around to start your life. For another 10-15 years. Nobody would say my life started when I got 80! Alright, being 66 you can still travel to the south in the winter. Your eyes may get a bit weak but you can still see what’s coming at you. So you buy that nice RV and get going. Hallelujah… Life on the road. Lets have fun!
OK, it’s nearing 6:00am. gotta go. I have a long ride today. Take care!
See you when I’m back.
