Photographer's Note

When I am sixty four

When I get older losing my hair,
Many years from now,
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings bottle of wine?

If I'd been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door,
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?

oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oooo
You'll be older too, (ah ah ah ah ah)
And if you say the word,
I could stay with you.

I could be handy mending a fuse
When your lights have gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride.

Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?

"When I'm Sixty-Four" is a song written by Paul Mc Cartney(credited to Lennon–McCartney) and released in 1967 on their album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

The song is sung by a young man to his lover, and is about his plans of growing old together with her. Although the theme is ageing, it was one of the first songs McCartney wrote, when he was only 16.

I am only a few years younger than The Beatles. Their youth was my youth. When the song was released, to be sixty four seemed abstract. Will ever that time come?? But it came quicker than one could imagine.

Today is my husband's sixty fourth (+ three) birthday. After more than forty years

I still need him I still feed him.

I do not know who is doing a garden and digging the weeds, it is me anyway:).
Knowing that I travel quite a lot and often alone, someone may wonder if Signor Itchy Feet exists. He does but his feet do not itch so much. He got used to my crazy travels and that something like two month in a year he must feed by himself.
