10) From: Les
Thank you all.  When I am asked how old I am, I say I am "old enough."
 I am over 50.   It is hard to believe it was 45 years ago today that
President Kennedy was shot.  I still remember that day.  I was in the
6th grade spinning tops with my friends at reccess when the
announcement came over the speakers that recess was canceled and we
had to return to our rooms.  I wasn't a happy camper!  I am enjoying a
fine Columbian this morning, after some testing of my "Bugle Blend."

11) From: Bob Hazen
Happy birthday Les!
When somebody asks me how old I am, I say "chronologically or 
intellectually?"  Different numbers, you know....  I have a great friend who 
is in his 60's.  He's been through all sorts of stuff, growing up in East 
LA, a rough time in 'Nam, 4 marriages (you'd think he would learn).  But 
he's a tough old bird and still a kid at heart.  I always say it's not old 
age that will get him, but terminal adolescence.
IMHO, we're as old as we think we are.

I always use Penelope's grandfather's line - I am approaching 
100.  Albeit a bit slowly and with a ways to go.

20) From: Sandy Andina
I was twelve, in the ninth grade (in the NYC public schools that was  
the last year of jr. high back then instead of freshman year of high  
school--all but the private school kids entered high school as  
sophomores).  I was home sick with a bad cold, watching television-- 
game shows, I think; never was into the soaps.  All of a sudden there  
was a special bulletin, mentioning JFK had been shot in Dallas and was  
being rushed to the hospital.  Not ten minutes later, Frank McGee  
broke back in with the news I'd been dreading.  I felt not only as if  
we as a nation had lost our innocence, but that those of us who were  
kids had ended our childhoods. I remember learning about the Lincoln,  
Cermak and McKinley assassinations and smugly thinking, "that could  
never happen today--we're more civilized than that."

21) From: Zara Haimo
On Friday the 22nd, Kennedy was shot and it seemed like the world had 
ended - I was in school and we all cried when the announcement was made over 
the school intercom.  Then on Saturday the 23rd, I got the thin letter in 
the mail that meant I had been accepted early decision to my first choice of 
colleges - whoopie, but how can you celebrate when the world ended just the 
day before?  Then 2 days later I turned 16 and should have been all excited 
yet again, but how could I be happy when that was the day of Kennedy's 
funeral?  That was a momentous weekend for me and for all of us who were 
alive at that time.  Every year on my birthday, I remember those days and 
how the world changed overnight.  I can only imagine what it must be like 
for those of us with birthdays on September 11th and other infamous dates.

22) From: Sandy Andina
Bob officially asked my father for my hand in marriage on Nov. 22,  
1970, but we put Nov. 20, the day he bought the ring, on our  
engagement announcements because we didn't want to associate a happy  
event with such a sad date.

28) From: Joseph Robertson
Les,
Happy Belated,
Met you once at PNWG V, I just turned 60 Oct.5th, I can relate. I still feel
like a kid of sorts. Less we need many more of these special days. I
personally dislike the alternative.
Kennedy, Yes, I know these markers we use for time telling. We got a bus
ride home with the rest in 7th grade when Kennedy got shot. Our whole town
was shut down.
 I saw Ruby shoot Oswald on a live TV news report. Talk about reality TV.
Time markers we never forget and yet it seems like yesterday.
My next time marker will be when I receive a Thor tamper. I hope you still
take orders. In all the world nothing comes close in craftsmanship.

My answer to that question is: "If there are no mirrors in the room, I am 28"
I like the great pitcher, Satchel Paige's answer to a reporter when 
asked that question. He said: "How old would you be if you didn't 
know how old you were?". (He claimed that he never knew how old he 
was due to lack of records.)
Btw, I am 70, with mirrors...
