When I’m Sixty-Four

For me, that’s today

From a trade ad in Billboard Magazine promoting the Beatles’ 1964 Grammy nominations. Image is in the public domain. It was taken in May of 1965.

At this somewhat melancholy time, I keep thinking of this song by The Beatles. These particular lyrics hit home the most.

“When I get older losing my hair.” — I thank my lucky stars that I still have all of my hair. I want to grow a beard, but it would be gray while my hair is brown. I’m not too fond of that two-tone look on me. So, no.
