Another year gone by in my life gone by as I turn 47 today. I was trying to find the best picture to represent this and it really was toss-up between the P-47 thunderbolt and the AK-47 assault rifle. I decided to go American as a child of the cold war, but I must admit that the AK-47 has some appeal as it is a reliable and highly flexible assault rifle.
The other Russian hardware associated with 47 is the Su-47 military aircraft.
There is also a movie called 47 Ronin staring Keanu Reeves, I have never seen it.
More famously for those who follow the Hitman series of video games, the main protagonist is Agent 47
All this is very interesting but turning 47 seems more like just another day than some of the other years I have experienced. It just does not have the punch of the years that end in zero or even five. I suppose at 47 this is probably the last year I can claim to be in my middle forties. Next year no one will buy that.
That said, I can’t complain. My life in the grand scheme of things is very good compared to many others. I am enjoying what I am doing right now and I only usually have the same wish as everyone else – more hours in the day to do the things I enjoy doing.
Well, I am going to bail and spend the rest of the day relaxing and going to my one class (which I enjoy).
Blessings and Cheers!!!
