Sometimes I get to feeling really, really old. You know, like old enough for my uncle to have been personal friends with Adam and Eve. And my cousin had picked up a piece of the first stone tablet containing the ten commandments that Moses had smashed. Just in case you haven't noticed yet, I have exaggerated these facts a tad. It is just that some mornings I do feel that old.
OK, I will tell you exactly how old I am. According to the internet site "myagecalculator.com", a very short time ago I was "74 years, 1 month, 27 days, 0 hours, and 31 minutes" old. Wow!!! I definitely have lived longer than the time I have left. That may be a little off, since I didn't know the exact time I was born. So you see I am really old, maybe not as old as dirt but pretty close. My Dad passed away when he was 60 years old but my Mom lived to be in her mid 90's. So, I have lived over 14 years more than my Dad but have a ways to go to catch up with my Mom. The truth of the matter is that we only have right now. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come, so make the best of your todays, you hear?
