A young whipper snapper asked me the other day how it was to be old. You know, here I am getting ready to turn 70 and I had not really thought about it. When I was in my twenties, I was of the opinion that people in their late 50's and 60's were old. So, I guess I now think that people in their 80's and 90's are old. This I do know, as you grow older, it is easier to be postive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself anymore. I've even earned the right to be wrong. So, to answer the young fellows question, I like being old, if that is what I am. It has set me free. I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting whatould have been, or worrying about what will be. My mission now is to fix supper at least four times a week, share my knowledge with those that want it, have a movement every morning, enjoy my green tea, cherish my naps and every now and then, kick some young fellows butt in a catfish tournament.
