>>In fact, I cannot wait to reach the age or appearance where I can say what the heck I want and people will excuse me because I am "getting old.">>

Being in the late September/Early October of my years (or whatever us newly turned 58 year olds can be said to be), I'm beginning to realize that while the notion has some appeal, a lot of the satisfaction is dampened because the memory of this new freedom either is only retained briefly or it gets mixed up with the memory of where we put the mustard or Phillips head screwdriver. Or the fear that somehow, we left the phillips head screwdriver sticking out of the mustard jar.

Is today Thursday? I think it might be, but I'd better check to be sure..

You are right, Lee, which is why my plan is to begin to feign senility when I still have the ability to enjoy people's reaction to it.

Jack-
I can't say I really like the aging process. There are not a whole lot of advantages of being 60 as opposed to 30 or 40 or so. And, I would certainly advise you not to wish you life away, looking forward to being old!
My late father had a poem he found somewhere called "The Golden Years." It ended by saying "...the golden years can kiss my a__." I concur.

I don't think one must wish their life away in order to look forward to aging. I always felt aging is better than its alternative. Speaking of poems/songs, I always enjoyed George Burns' rendition of "I Wish I Was 18 Again."



The guy just puffs the cigar with dignity. Grow old with dignity!

Well, Jack, thank you, both for what you wrote and especially for "I Wish I Were 18 Again." Burns gave me my best smile of the day.

Rich

One of the best post I've ever read. Being very close to being 67, my golden years haven't been good ones.

Good advice, dont wish your life away!

My good friend Merle, has said many time....the hell with the golden years!

The golden years can surely kiss my ASS!

If only I could add each of your bad golden years to the end of my alotted time....

Watch your language, Paul, since I won't edit you, I am sure someone will accuse me of playing favorites. Or else, they'll just dismiss your obscene language by saying, "well, ol' Paul is gettin' up there."

NO REBUTTAL

God, I miss that.

That was my favorite retort on this website. Forgive me, I have to sit at my desk and appear busy today, boo.

Anyone know of any more easments for the near future? Lil J has gotten some as well as some in Erie- although the posting on Elk Creek recently stinks. Hope we can gain more than we lose in 2014.
