Happy Birthday to me!

The good news is that I'm in reasonably good health, and I'll be eligible for Social Security retirement payments as of the first of next month.

The bad news is that I won't be eligible for free Medicare (free medical care for seniors, courtesy of the U.S. government) until I'm 67. (At 66, you're eligible for Medicare, but you have to pay for at least part of it). So I'd prefer not to retire for at least five more years. I hope my hands and wrists hold out for that long.

P.S. I'm on strike--I refuse to say Tachanun on my birthday! :)

As they say in Yiddish, "From your mouth to G-d's ear (Fun dein moil un Gott's oir arein)." Thanks, RivkaYael!
