that's how long i've been walking this earth
what is it about turning 40 that gets
everyone all retrospective?
1971 was a great year
it was the year that greenpeace was established
women got the vote in Switzerland
the australian & nz forces left vietnam
the uk & ireland went decimal
china was admitted to the un
the first cat scan was used
apollo 14 landed on the moon
cigarette ads were banned on tv
sadly the great man louis armstrong died
elton john released 'Your Song'
aretha franklin had the hit single 'Bridge over troubled water'
and it was a record year of births in Australia
& as far as i can work out that record still stands ...
only i wasn't born in australia .... where you ask?
and why? hmmm
if you know, then be the first to leave me a comment
(its been mentioned on this post!!)

as jacob says:
"age is just a number baby! what are you like 40 now?"
leaving you with the voice of louis armstrong on your mind:
(he didn't write this ... did you know?)
i see trees of green ... red roses too
i see them bloom .... for me & you
