Wow! As my old idol Mickey Mantle said, "If I'd known I was gonna live this long, I'da taken better care of myself."
Yep. April 15th. The date Lincoln died, the date the Titanic sank, Tax Day. Does that tell ya anything about the way my life has been? LOL. Frankly, the way my luck goes, if I inherited 400 acres of pumpkins, some ratsass would cancel Halloween!
Oh well, if this is as bad as it gets, I'll probably be okay. I ain't dying or anything like that, at least I don't think I am... well, any faster than nature decrees anyway. Understand... i'm not complaIning...really! It's more than I can't seem to process that I'm this freakin' old! Yeah I know that there are a couple of you out there that have me beat, but 70??? That's what I'da considered an 'old fossil' when I was a kid!!!
So here's a tip for all of you who are younger than I am. Whatever else you do in your life, DON'T GET OLD!!!!!!! It ain't all it's cracked up to be and it damned sure ain't for cowards.
The comedian Gallegher once said, "God sure has a weird sense of humor. He gives you your whole youth to learn a whole buncha stuff that you can't do when you get older... but you don't find out about it until you try to do some of that stuff and end up going: "Oof! Damn! I can't do that shit any more!" Like running (hurrying) to the bathroom and hoping that it isn't as far away as it seems to be.
Well anyway. I ain't gonna die anyway. It's said that you can't take it with you, although yesterday I saw a hearse with a luggage rack so....
