         The life and times of Mark and Paula Persons

Thursday, April 12, 2012:  Gilbert Lodge Rodent Control Officer Josie (the cat) was out with Grounds Keeper Paula (the human) who was raking leaves.

They both love the outdoors. 

Things happen.  It was the "big" birthday day for Mark.  He turned 65 on this day.

Mark was born the same year as the transistor was invented. 

When asked what it was like, Mark said, "It took a long time to get here.  Oh, by the way, David Letterman is my exact same age."

When Zsa Zsa Gabor was asked what it was like to turn 65, she told reporters, "Val darling, I'll tell you when I get there."

Mark, will you retire?  Answer:  Not yet...there is still plenty of work ahead for me on this planet.

Mark, would you have done anything different in your life?  Answer:  "If I had known I would live this long, I would have treated my body better."
