Yes your blood pressure is in normal range considering your age and as you do not have any other health issues.
Various factors influence a person's average BP and variations. Factors such as age and gender influence average values. In adults systolic pressure tends to rise and diastolic tends to fall. In the elderly, BP tends to be above the normal adult range largely because of reduced flexibility of the arteries.
Wish you best of health. God bless
