Since I’m in my sixties, I thought I’d note the signifance of those numbers:

**60** – a composite number, with divisors 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, and 60, making it a highly composite number. 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour. **60 Minutes** is a very successful news program.

**61**– the number of **home runs Roger Maris of the New York Yankees hit in 1961** to break Babe Ruth’s record

**62**– in the US, you can collect Social Security at age 62. But, **perhaps you shouldn’t**

**63** – the atomic number of the element **europium**

**64**– the square of 8, the cube of 4, and the sixth power of 2. **WILL you still need me?**

**65**– the smallest integer that can be expressed as a sum of two distinct positive squares in two ways, 65 = 8 squared + 1 squared = 7 squared + 4 squared.

**66** – the total number of chapters in the Bible book of Isaiah. The total number of books in the Protestant edition of the Bible. **My current age**

**67** – the sum of five consecutive primes (7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19)

**68** – the largest known number to be the sum of two primes in exactly two different ways: 68 = 7 + 61 = 31 + 37

69 – a wager amount **NOT allowed on the American quiz show JEOPARDY!**

Why don’t you visit six of your swinging colleagues on ABC Wednesday?
