Default Growing Old!!

Came by this at a family reunion back farther than I care to remember!! Thought I ought to share it.


Growing Old
"Have you ever noticed growing old is for the young? When we are babies it goes by the months, “He is 21 months”. When we become toddlers it goes by the half years “I am 3 and . Have you ever heard someone say Hi I’m 35 and . When we reach our teens we jump ahead,” I’m going to be 16”,we may be 13 but were going to be 16!!

Than a magic thing happens, we become 21! It is almost as if it were a coronation or something, I have arrived!! But then we turn 30 what’s up with that? It’s as if we are milk that just went bad, we turned; maybe we need to be thrown out or something. Soon, however, we reach 40 then we make it to 50 and we’re pushing 60 and we arrive at 70 .

When we reach our 80’s we’re just glad to make it to lunch! My grandmother is in her 80’s, she won’t buy green bananas, because “it’s an investment and she may not collect”!
But a funny thing happens when we reach our 90’s, we become kids again, I’m 92 and ."

Wisdom: Where experience and knowledge combine and become one.

"We are all one decision away from Stupid!!"

Lamentations 3:22-23

"How often we sacrifice the permanent plans of God on the altar of immediate solutions"

I have a very good memory, just short is all.

Jerry, you start life on a liquid diet,wearing diapers,and using a walker. I guess if your lucky,you'll go out the same way.

Actually not me, I'm your age. My dad lived to 87 and grandfather 89. Honey and I have been together a mere 38 years. I am glad I am only 65, maybe I will have a few more years to enjoy woodworking, Sorry didn't mean to mislead.
