This and the next few posts are to honor of the new header above about Will’s quote on old age. I don’t know quite what the definition of “old age” is but I kinda think I might be getting there.
I just don’t understand how I got all the way to this point in my life? It seems like yesterday that I was in college working my butt off to pay for school and to graduate. Admittedly my high school memories are pretty sparse now. I played those years out in the background as a shy kid who was totally clumsy in a social environment. How have almost sixty years gone by?
I don’t think I have that many years left so I best be getting to the bragging point before it is too late. I know all the sociologists tell me that I will now remember the past not as it happened but as I wanted it to happen.
When I did finally start coming out of my shell in the late teens I now mostly remember the lost opportunities where if I had just done something different my life might be much different than it is. If only I had told Ginny how I felt about her. Instead, I held back as I always did and let it go by. Maybe when I start bragging I can change that and a couple other stories of my life?
I kinda like to believe that my bragging here on RJsCorner is to pass on the wisdom from making so many mistakes during my years on this earth. 🙂

Isn’t ‘old’ about ten years past wherever you are now?
Yeah, that is what they say Marquita, but at some point you just gotta admit that it ain’t so. I think maybe I am at that point 🙂
How come there are no old men in your header?
Cause canStockPhoto didn’t have any short wide shots that included men. Go figure… I thought about morphing the person on the right into a man but got to lazy to accomplish that. 🙂 But, I am glad to see that someone is paying attention to all my efforts, Thanks…
