Walna, 'nother year has past 'n' some of us have grown older in body but not necessarily in mind. We think, "I'm too young to be an "old man"!!"

I tell my kids, who are all in their, mid to late 40's, on their birthdays that I'm too young to have kids THAT OLD! Yepper, it's all in tha mind, I tell ya!

Jest because: ya still wear blue jeans; our knees 'n' shoulders snap 'n' crackle when we get up out of a chair; we fall asleep while reading a book (usually after reading the same paragraph 3-4 times); some of us ol'timers hit tha hay at 9:30pm(others like me, don't seem ta crash before 1:00am); we look in tha mirror fer signs thet we are beginning ta look like our grandfathers; young men step forward ta open a door fer ya 'n' young women say yer "a sweet ol'man" fer complimentin' them on their looks, 'n' yer wife mutters about being married to an "old man"; it's all a state ov tha mind I tell ya!

Keep an eye to the ridgeline......'n' keep repeatin' "I aint old yet! I aint old yet! I aint old yet!"

Regards, xfox

I just don't know whether to be shocked or elated that I've made it this far.

You Old Fox, I just love it when I ride my bicycle thru a nearby pueblo with the white beard glistening in the sunlight and my gut preceeding evrything else, the niños y niñas shout Santa Claus! I just grin, wave, and keep on riding. Haw haaww! El León

Happy New Year and may the upcoming season bring joy and happiness around the fires in the evening getting reaquainted with old friends and making of new friends.

Heh,I did the Santa thing at a local strip mall for the second year in a row this year. I had an absolute blast....Never thought I would like it as much as I do.
