OLD? - Did you say “OLD”, “OLDER”, “GETTING OLDER”, “FEELING OLD”?? 

What is OLD?  (Someone who isn’t young)?  I, personally do not know what “OLD” is! I do have some aches & pains I didn’t have 50 years ago - and I am on certain medication for heart, blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, etc... 

But, think about this:  

OLD cars had to have gas to run - (So do new ones)! 

OLD cars had to have the oil changed - (So do new ones)! 

OLD cars had to get tires changed & fixed - (So do new ones)! 

You had to service engine, transmission, wipers, radiator, spark plugs, etc... And So too the ‘Young’ New Cars!! 

So, what’s the big deal?  It is a “STATE OF MIND”! Stay active, take out that horn you haven’t touched for the past 10 yrs and ‘mess’ with it, inter-act with young people.  Take your wife on a “hayride”.  Go to a Sandlot Softball Game.  Have fun, get excited about something!  Just remember; You have mastered something the young people haven’t - the ‘Art’ of living as long as your have!  Thumbs Up, keep getting “OLDER” - and “STAY YOUNG”!!!! 

                                              And the music fades in the background...... 

                                        “Give me some men, who are stout hearted men”.......
