Thread: ARRRRRRGGG! IVE BECOME ONE OF THEM!

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »

    I heard an elderly man telling a forty something man that he had better be good at math because he was going to be doing a lot of subtracting as he got older. Unfortunately, for a lot of us, this holds very true. My father used to tell me that I was wasting time hunting and fishing on my time off work, that I could do all of that in my "golden years". I wasn't sure that I would even make it to my golden years much less be able to do all of that stuff. So far, the only golden thing that I can find is how often I have to go to the bathroom during the night. But, to keep things in perspective, a simple walk through a Children's Hospital or a VA Hospital quickly reminds me that I have no problems, just some inconveniences. I have learned to not say anything about how well I might be feeling or things can't get any worse. All in all, I am a very blessed man, more so that I really deserve. Besides, when I do whine, my wife laughs at me.

    Going to a wedding I tell my wife,” I hope they don’t stick us at a table with the old people.” When we get there we were the oldest ones there.

    ....Being there , resembling that....
    ....for a brief time I watched over a 104 year old. He drove to the store every day for his Lotto tickets , his newer car looking like a badly strafed aircraft and any protrusions wiped clean. He enjoyed his life, family and pets emmensily .
    His rich stories never mentioned physical hardships only life lessons.
    While I put the miles on and deal with my own breakdowns , I remember to thank those who go ahead and check it out for the rest of us !
    DL , you write eloquently----Thanks.

    It's amazing, somewhere and I don't where or when, I crossed the line and became the old one. I guess when the older guys began calling me Sir I should have known or when you got the senior discount even though you weren't that old yet. But now I feel it.
