Oh To Be Young Again!

Old age is like everything else; to make a success of it, you’ve got to start young.

I wish I had this sign in my home fifty years ago!

We have been retired 12 Years, 7 Months, and 23 Days! Time sure seems to fly and the older I get, the faster it goes!

Sometimes I sit back and think about my grandchildren and wish I could impart some of my lessons learned onto them, but, as with myself, they have to make their way through life.

Today, our oldest granddaughter turns twenty-five, and I can remember being there when she was born. Grandma Sue was in the delivery room, and I was close by in the adjacent room. Now, she has two little varmints of her own. Life repeats itself!  Happy birthday Cassie!

The movie below is short, but it will make you think!  It’s worth the three-minute view!

A man wants to work… For his pay
A man wants a place… In the sun
A man wants a gal proud to say
That she’ll become his lovin’ wife
He wants a chance to give his kids a better life
Well hello ah…. Hello brother

You can travel all around the world and back
You can fly or sail or ride a railroad track
But no matter where you go you’re gonna find
That people have the same things on their minds

A man wants to work… For his pay
A man wants a place… In the sun
A man wants a gal… Proud to say
That she’ll become… His lovin’ wife
He wants a chance to give his kids a better life
Well hello brother, hello

[Instrumental]

He wants a chance to give his kids a better life, yes
Well hello, hello, brother hello
I said hello, hello, brother hello

The cleaning folks came, and we departed for the hospital to get ready for next week’s operation.  The pesky kidney stone has got to go, and we want it gone my Thanksgiving!

In the afternoon we went to Coldstone Creamery for a bit of ice cream.  We  brought some home toVicky and Del.
