39 Years Ago this Month ~ MAY 1978
Rock & Roll movies made a big splash heading into summer, the year you first-time 39ers were born. Do the rest of you remember …
13th: even beating out The Beatles for a while, Barry Gibb’s prolific songwriting passion finally paid off. He climbed the music charts to become the only songwriter to grab Billboard’s top spot with four consecutive #1 singles. Barry eventually expanded that to six #1 tunes, and shares the record with Lennon and McCartney. He kinda had a push up the charts—it all started on a Saturday night in December 1977.
18th: more movie magic came in the release of The Buddy Holly Story, starring Gary Busey. It picked up the Academy Award (1979) for Best Music and several more; and solidified Gary as a bona fide major Hollywood player, in his nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Doesn’t it seem to you that the best movies include Rock & Roll??
31st: National Senior Health & Fitness Day – I know, I know, you newbies don’t want to be called “senior” yet. However, if you’ve been sedentary in the past couple of years, it’s time to get moving. Love this year’s theme: With Movement… There’s Improvement. And that’s especially true for you 39ers who have been 39 for a couple-ten-years-or-more. J
For 39ers who Follow the Stars …
Just like moms and May flowers, MAY 39ers are multi-faceted with complexity to match. Deliberate and down-to-earth Taurus (April 20-May 20) transforming into quick-witted and chatty Gemini (May 21-June 20) is a big leap. Even if your mom or other loved one is on the cusp and caught between, you gotta love ‘em anyway!
Aging with ATT-i-tude Platitude
What’s the point of eating healthy and exercising? Who wants to live to be 89?
Response: Someone who’s 88.
~ From BBC television series, Midsomer Murders, Season 3, Episode 3: “Blue Herrings”
Great cheese and wine need aging, but for 39ers … Age is a number … LIFE is ATT-i-tude!TM
Happy UN-Birthday MAY 39ers,
(Here’s lookin’ at you, kids – 39AHC Birthday 39ers, Susie, Pauline, and Judith!)
