When I’m Sixty Four!

Bruce & Brian

Thanks to all for the birthday wishes on “our” sixty fourth birthday! Pictured above is me and my twin brother Bruce. I used to say I’m 20 minutes older than Bruce but now that were older he gets to say he’s 20 minutes younger! If you get my drift…. Bruce and I are blessed beyond measure to have great health and wonderful wives and grandchildren. We were raised in a single mom home and the odds of us making it in life, having stable families, getting good jobs, etc. were pretty slim. But because God is the “Father to the fatherless” and through the prayers of many who knew our situation both of us went on to marry our high school sweethearts, get great jobs without a college education and have wonderful children and grandchildren that are a great blessing to us. We give God and our Savior Jesus all the credit and glory!

This morning Bruce sent me an email that contained the words to the Beatles song “When I’m Sixty-Four” so I copied them below and included the Youtube link to the song if you’d like to listen.

Thanks again!


“When I’m Sixty Four”

When I get older losing my hair
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
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?

You’ll be older too
And if you say the word
I could stay with you

I could be handy, mending a fuse
When your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride
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?

Every summer we can rent a cottage in the Isle of Wight
If it’s not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your knee
Vera, Chuck & Dave

Send me a postcard, drop me a line
Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, wasting away
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?
