    When you grow old you find many of the things you hold dear

    may have already gone on before you. I found such an item today. When I was a kid, stealing a little beer from Harry's Delli in Mission Beach, California we loved to boost "Country Club stout malt liquor", it could kick a 15 year olds ass bigtime. No more, it's gone. I have no idea when it died but it used to come in a little 8oz can. The other day, I got to thinking of days gone by and decided I'd try to find it. No. Now there's a clear 40oz of something calling itself Country Club, but like Floyd, Ronnie and Eddie, my ole gang, it too was gone. Just keep trucking, you'll see.
    Don't do things in the day that will keep you awake at night.

    The clock ticks things change and what was once the norm is now forgotten.
    Its the cycle of life, the hardest thing is to say goodbye to loved ones and long time friends and your pets. I dont say goodbye, I say Ill see ya soon

    It's true we were born to die, it's what happens between that counts.

    Dont dwell on it, live your life, make something of everyday. I go out every day, I go to the gym every other day unless im wounded. I work in my last old friends computer shop and meet alot of people. I dont do television, when im home and not engaged with my wife I do the net, either the forum or wow or read.

    Worst thing seniors can do is sit around and dwell or worry about when the clock stops. Just go till you cant

    I was a 14-15 year old kid and didn't get caught, hence, not a criminal.

    95 % of my $#@! was as a kid. I got caught and faced justice, my karma is cleared.

    Gotta love people who look down because they were never caught! LOL
