The Beatles Changed a Whole Generation

It used to be that special ages like Sweet Sixteen or turning 21 were milestones. As you got older it was the decades, your 30s, etc. Finally you reached 65 and you were over the hill.

Well, in the mid-60s that British Band, the Beatles, changed all that with a cute little ditty, When I'm 64. That great tag line has rung through the baby-boomers' years:

Will you still need me?
Will you still feed me?
When I'm 64?
Well, it has arrived for this Baby Boomer. Today. When I'm 64.

So, in a good age-defying narcissism, I put together a video for my own birthday. I think I'm allowed to do that for such a milestone day. i dug out old pictures that I had scanned, threw in a few of the places I have plied my professional trade and, as they say, voila!

Enjoy my little trip down memory lane. (And please, don't laugh. That little kid was quite sensitive.)
