    I had my son and daughter a bit later in life. My son will be 43 in October and my daughter was just 41. I see flecks of gray in their hair and can't quite believe their ages. What I do love as they age, are traits my Mom and Dad had. They seem more pronounced as they get older and it makes me happy that I passed on these traits to them. Every once in awhile they will say something or move in a certain way and it's like my Mom and Dad are still with me.

    From "Time" by Pink Floyd..

    Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.
    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.
    So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again.
    The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

    Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over,
    Thought I'd something more to say.
    We're not here for a long time. We're here for a good time

    Time does seem to go so fast the older you get. I was married 4yrs before I had my first child because my Husband got drafted right before we got married and he didn't want me to have a baby while he was in the service. So my oldest child my son will be 49yrs old in October and
    my daughter came 7yrs later so she just turned 42yrs old. What really amazes me is that my oldest grandchild just turned 23yrs old a few days ago.

    I just read HollyDolly's post (above). She must be related to "Vlad, the Impaler".

    But when you are 72 and look back 4 years to when you were 68 it seems like a very short time because those 4 years are only 1/18 of your life.

    Like I said, it's a theory. I don't have any evidence to back it up.

    Well, remember when you were 15 1/2 and it would be six months til you could get a driver's license? That six months was six years long. Not to mention the last month before school let out.....at least a year long.

    Now, I'll read that something happened 10 years ago and it feels like yesterday..... Sigh.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    I still don’t accept that 1969 was 50 years ago

    Hell, ’99 was 20 years ago!

    Y2K my butt



    ......and 70 years ago, I was racing with several others, for the prize

    somewhere in this cabin in ZigZag OR




    Hey, that's back when completion was vital

    Still, I managed a selfie
