    Because I was in a antiquarian book shop and found a book written by an old friend of mine!

    Actually true, 'Out of nowhere' on snipers. Anyone else?

    Because I keep thinking "This is not the America (World) I grew up in." and while a lot of curmudgeons think like that, this time it is real and very dangerous.

    Besides, I like bamboo fly rods, lever action rifles and single action revolvers. Who else but an old fart likes that any more? :eek: :D
  4. When I talk about recent history in my classes, the Vietnam War or the Kennedy assassination for example, the students react like those things happened somewhere around the time of Christ. :D;)

    I feel old because I poot dust. (I told y'all I collect dust.;) :D)
    I feel old because I went to bed at 6 AM and woke up at 7:30 AM and I felt like I over slept. :rolleyes: :D

    As I type this Rush is on in the backround playing a parody song based on Randy Newman's "Short People" called "Old People". It's pretty good. :D

    .....I'm taking a break from tearing the old roof off of my house to save money to offset the metal upgrade that will go on tomorrow. what a stupid idea. I've got a hit of the best pain pill I have and can't feel that it's working. It's about 95 right now and I'm racing to be finished before the predicted high of 105 sets in.

    Because my moral and ethical values don't seem to be in vogue anymore, or even evident anywhere (except on TFF of course)

    On the otherhand, just turned 46, good health, active, financially O.K., plenty love in my life and 3 great kids. Plus, the milage i've got I lived to the hilt!
    I'mm looking forward to 46 more and the wisdom I should gain!!
    By the way, I ain't givin' up my values for no one, and I'll fight to keep 'em

    That one strikes home. My wife works for a police dept dealing with, among other things sexual offences, especially by the young. Part of my part time work results in my dealing with people who have been mislead, defrauded, just plain taken advantage of. The victims are by default the most vulnerable. Where possible, I help sort things out. We sometimes despair of the complete absence of those moral and ethical values.

    Of course there have always been scum. There just seem to be so many now days.

    Hey lighten up, I feel old the third time I take a wizz in the night. I feel old on TFF at 02.30 because I cant sleep, again. I feel old because I cant digest the fish and chips I ate a couple of hours ago. I feel old because despite every effort not to, I fall asleep most afternoons. I feel old because when I look in the mirror, there is some old guy looking back at me.

    I feel old when I try to do any labor at all. It seems that it now takes me three days to do what I used to do in one day. I feel old when I go to bed at night and can't sleep because of pain. I feel old when I wake up in the morning, and am feeling pain. Watching my brothers grandkids playing in the yard one day. I told my brother that I wished I had the energy that they did. He replied: "If you had the energy they have, you would kill yourself in about five minutes, you old fool".

    I feel old when I see young guys making fools of themselves while thinking they look cool. I smile, been there, I Know better now. I like that feeling.

    I feel old because I mentioned to my 19 yr old daughter most of my teeth were not mine, having been smashed long before she was born, and she never knew.
