My grandpa said I could quote him on this.

    We went over for dinner today, and were just talking random things. We got on the topic of their business (they sandblast monuments) and how a lot of the stones they blast are for very young children/young adults. He said, "Growing old is a priviledge denied many."

    And on second thought, he added, "But when you get there you don't think of it as a priviledge!"

    He said I could quote him on this if I felt like it. And I thought it was worth sharing, because it's so true.

    Hehe, what a smart grandpa. [​IMG] Hopefully growing old for me will bring wisdom. It's already bought a few big knocks, but I like to think mistakes are there to be learned from [​IMG]

    I tend to be resistant to the power of suggestion. I think it is one of the few benefits of ADD. I can't focus long enough to...... ugh ...... I forgot what I was going to say.....
