From a dear friend who has passed – Don Lea

About Growing Older…

  • First…  eventually you  will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
  • Second… the older we  get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
  • Third… some  people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know “why” I  look this way. I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved.
  • Fourth…  when you are  dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.
  • Fifth…  you know you  are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
  • Sixth…  I don’t know  how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
  • Seventh… one of  the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change  from being young.
  • Eighth…  one  must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.
  • Ninth…  being young is  beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
  • Tenth…  long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it’s called golf.
  • And finally…  if  you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have anything to laugh at when  you are old.

The time is now….
