Four More Day

It is June 19, 2010.  I’ve always made the joke that those of us who are mathematically challenged were given a special gift by God.  He allowed us to be born on years ending in 0 or 5 so we could figure out dates.

In the Year 2000

When I was 10 in 1960 our family took a month long trip to Arizona. There was no real inter state highway system then.  Much of the trip was on “Historic Route 66” which at the time wasn’t historic it was Route 66.

Hour upon hour in the car besides playing games made up in our heads since we didn’t have ipods or computers, we just had our brains, but I digress. . .  I had a lot of time to think.  One of those profound moments in math for a 10 year old was “In the year 2ooo I will be 50 years old.” WOW, that was so old it was hard for me to imagine at the time.

2010 was beyond my ability to fathom

I could barely conceive 50 years old, but 60 holy cow, was God even 60?
