    What !

    About 17 years ago I realized, when I woke after a loooong night partying, Crap, this is getting hard. Realized later that day, I was already, what I "thought" was "old". Did myself some thinking... OK, usually I don't feel old. I can still keep up with the young guys...and kick...

    Oreo's

    Getting old is a kick in the rump. But it does have it's bright side. You can devour half a pack of Double Stuffed Oreo's and a quart of milk for dinner and no one yells at you!!!

    Make Friends With Teens, Not Enemy'S

    As one gets older, the young think we have lost the hope of the future. We no longer can live for the dreams as they can and we once did. When we try to discourage them from doing things rashly or when we try to stop them from making the same mistakes we did, we become the enemy...

    It Slows You Down

    Was a day I could work from sun up to sun down. Never needed a rest except to eat lunch and dinner. Actually enjoyed working hard and sweating in the extreme heat of a summers day. Admittedly I would have lazy days where a shady tree would call my name and I'd have to go and...

    Things Change

    Gravity just keeps getting stronger. Things you lift prove that. Stepping on the scale proves that. Lifting your rear end from a comfortable seat proves that. Work takes longer and longer to complete. Things it only took you minutes to do now take hours. Things that once took...

    Talking About My Generation

    Hello! I am getting up there in age and I am stating to feel them. A few years ago I remember telling people that I never get the flue. But this winter I had a flue 5x - of course I was faking it 3x so I wouldn't have to go to work. Cheers!

    I Lose Even More Hope

    Young Genes Vs Actual Age

    I never seemed to have a problem with getting a year older each time.  Perhaps it was because I needed to run away from a particular age and time that I wanted to forget about.  The older I got, it seemed the more mature people around me seemed to be, and I liked that.  I was...

    Getting old is rough but... Then along comes a day like today. My grandson who is not quite four years old. He laid some change out in a row on the floor. Told me he had ten coins. Then told me there were two nickles, four pennies and four quarters. And he was perfectly right...

    Uselessness

    It's been a very busy week. There was snow and ice to clean up and remove, I was busy day and night thanks to a friend who needed help. But then the work was over and once again I was home with nothing to do and no one to talk to. Even while plowing this thought kept getting in...

    So I Decided Not To.

    Age, yes. We either get older in age or we die. But I'm thoroughly convinced that I can live to 100 without getting old because I believe "old" is more an attitude than a specific number of years.

    Another bad thing about getting older? You seem to lose the ability to keep your mouth shut! Things that once you would never talk about, you now do or say without thinking. Embarrassment? Heck you've been around long enough and have been embarrassed enough that embarrassment...

    Young At Heart

    I do not like getting old, well in fact I guess that at 62 I am old. I do not feel old, I like to dance, I walk for miles, I am slim and keep fit, but I´m old. I certainly do not wish to look plastic like so many oldies and not so oldies, so I guess all I can do is live...

    Yeah, So I'm Getting Old

    Yup, really don't like getting old. But is it maybe because I only wish I could relive my youth with the wisdom and enlightenment I've learned by getting old... Yet couldn't I push aside the pain of an older body and live with the youthful mind... Still full of inquisitiveness...

    I bond to my old clothes, they become an extension of me. It'll wear them until they're tattered. Tossing them out is like tossing out a part of me.
