I grew up in the sixties so I could really relate.

I was in grade school when I first heard of The Beatles. My high school years were all about the 60’s music and early 70’s too.  Last night after dinner while I was in front of my PC reading blog posts, Josef entered the room and said “you will surely enjoy this Ma”  placing his cellphone near me.  Then I heard those lovely tunes of the 60’s.  Various artists, so many songs. They took me back to  my early childhood. I listened for more than an hour to lovely songs  of old. I asked him if he downloaded them from YouTube. He said he didn’t.  Think of The Animals, The Hollies, The Monkees, Simon and Garfunkel, Frankie Valli, Dave Clark Five,The Fifth Dimension, Roy Orbison   to name a few. There are so many of them, I could not remember all the groups but the songs  are so familiar. I remember the cassette tape I had before about the British Invasion and those CDs I used to buy on soul music of the 70’s. Now I only listen on YouTube while using the computer.

It makes me think, the 60’s  were  the most productive years  when it comes to this type of music.  Feel the beat.  Listen to the music.

I was doing a little gardening this afternoon when I heard  the doorbell ring. A Cainta van was in front of our gate.  The two employees of the municipal hall asked me when my birthday is. One even sang a happy birthday. I was surprised.  They gave me this  bag of groceries and a big umbrella from the Mayor’s office.

One of our neighbors said months ago that they give birthday gifts to senior citizens every year.  This is my first time to receive one.  I truly appreciate this, it’s the thought that counts, right?

Have I told you that  recently our town  was given recognition of excellence, a well-managed town among all the towns in the Philippines?  It is the richest town among all towns outside Metro Manila.  I think  we received the awards for three straight years. Mayor Kit is the best, I must agree.  He has a Facebook page and he gives us updates every day.  You can even drop by his office and he will entertain you. I send messages to him sometimes when our garbage collector is  not on schedule and he immediately responds.

I’ll be turning 60  61 in two days  and this is a lovely gift for my birthday.
