    I'd be remiss if I didn't warn you...the first 40 years are the slow years in which most everything thing of real import to you most likely finds it' beginnings.

    After 40 come the fast years. Youth no longer supports our every ambition. Instead of this and that it becomes this or that.. We begin to feel and realize the passage of time, not as an abstract, but in our bones, in the lines time and our own efforts draw as they create a new portrait of our selfs. We give up the faces the world gives us to wear as we matriculate though the world of men.
    Those lines in our face are not imposed upon us from without, but rather reveal themselves from within us
    A footnote that grows deeper each day and silently describes to us more days than we can remember having.

    It seems to me that we begin to turn away from the confusion of the outer world and turn inward in search of what the world of men can never give us,.. the grace to accept who we are.

    Be happy for it's your birthday, be alert and aware or anther dozen may go by before you have a chance to age properly...":O}

    It's great to read a new post from you, Daniel!
    I'm learning that old age isn't merciful. Probably because I deserve no mercy, hate to admit that I turned out to be far, far, far less of the hero that I had the unmitigated crust to think I was. It's always something! Otoh, I'm glad that people I "know" have worked hard to improve their lives.
    I have too, but roadblocks are apita.

    Glad you are all here!
    I don't know too many 60-70 year olds still playing with computers and games.
    We are a unique bunch!

    I don't even know why a 60 or 70 year old WOULD play a game. Seems like by that time theres so much more to see and do that is planned that you'd have a thing you'd want to do instead.

    Anyone know where I left the car? Had to stop driving maybe four years ago. My concentration isn't good enough. I still own the car but have to pay for the driver. Best of both worlds! At eleven years of age the dang thing seems to require some repair bills. The nerve!

    Why I thought Mercedes were supposed to last! Good luck with that, very few of the "inexpensive" Mercedes SUV's are still on the road. Glad that I bought a Kia instead. A good deal less money to buy and far better quality than a "cheap" Mercedes SUV. You heard it here first.

    But not ALL Kia's are good. Some of the cheap small ones should be avoided.[/quote]

    No, no, no. Can't see a thing from the back seat. And losing the easiness of seeing almost everything from the front seat of an SUV? The shame, a gas guzzling SUV not to mention smog producing non-thinking man's car. Guilty! At least it's not a Mercedes--which would have been junked five years ago. No kidding.
