    Truth Teller

    I'm a low down dirty liar.  And a coward.  Self delusion doesn't work with me, however.  I know what I am.   I am not Michelle Pfeiffer!  There I said it.  Now, I feel better.   I also do not qualify anymore for my age range status on EP.   I haven't qualified for...

    "You can tell she was pretty when she was young.'  Two teenage girls, discussing me, literally behind my back, as I sat five feet away from them!  Another sign you're getting older...people assume you are deaf!  (Full disclosure: It took me a few days to...

    The View From The Mountain Top.

    Yesterday I had some work to do on some property that my father inlaw owened on the other side of the mountain. When I got done I decided to take the road over the mountain on my return. At the very tip top of the mountain is a lookout where you can see for mile's of the valley...

    Jokes Give It Away

    I know I am not nearly as funny as I think I am so learning that my jokes now seem dated and give away my age. I know I am getting older because my not so silly jokes give me away!

    Old Before I'm Old.

    I can now say I've lived in three decades. 1900's, 2000's and 2010's. I'm only 18. I can remember things that happened 15 years ago. I've recently said "when I was that age". I can have a full conversation with someone who is ten years younger than me. I've said, "you'll...
