Signs of the Apocalypse


Yes, I know. This is a triathlon blog or a writing blog or something. But I have been known to also express my appreciation of the female form. Think of me as a renaissance painter, only using digital words and lacking any artistic merit.

Anyhow, work and training have gotten in the way of regular posting, but today, I had to drop a note about signs of the upcoming apocalypse. Ursula Anders, the original "Bond Girl" from "Dr. No" is having her birthday today.

She is Seventy Freaking Two Years Old! A Bond Girl in her 70s! That would make me . . . .

**checking the math***

Never mind. I need to lie down.

ha ha ha.... My Mom took a bunch of kids to see Goldfinger for my older brother's 10th birthday (I know!)

I was 8.

So yeah - apocolypse now!

But what's even funnier is that Sean Connery being an old man (and he has been for quite some time now) never even registered with you. See how that works?

Seeing her birthday and also noting that Paul Kautner, the lead guitarist of Jefferson Airplane just turned 67 have caused me to dip into a bit of a funk as well.

my problem is that I keep seeing these 20 something guys and thinking I am old enough to be their mother... in a really back woods sort of way ...

I had one of those moments recently when I re-watched Raiders of the Lost Ark. Love that flick--and Harrison Ford--so hot.
He'll be 66 this summer.
Sweet Jesus.
