Green Side of the Grass

A friend sent me this in an e-mail.  OMG, it is SO TRUE.  For those of you who haven't reached your seven score plus, this is what you have to look forward to.  So, so true.  

All I know is that when I was young, it seemed to my like my youth was going to last forever.  I lived for the weekends.  Then, somewhere along the way, I got old.  Now I go to bed early on Saturday night.  Oh sure, every now and then I "live it up" and watch one of my Netflix rentals.  That is if I can keep my eyes open.  

So you young folks out there (and that's everybody under 50!), this is what you have to look forward to.  So, so true.

    1. Nadage,

      This IS the future, believe me. Anyone over fifty can attest to this video and how accurate it is. It is funny though. Better to laugh at getting older than getting all serious and depressed about it.

  3. I'll reluctantly admit that I can fully relate to this - - although I seem to have had a lot of these old age symptoms before I was fifty (Am I trying to be funny? Naw....).
    Remember when the days seemed so loooong? And summer vaction was endless? And the future was infinite??

    Now the time flies by so fast that I can hardly keep up with it - and I keep forgetting whether it's January or July. I avoid looking in mirrors for fear they will crack. I do my very best to forget birthdays.

    And I sadly sigh with frustration - - knowing that the cute California kid is gone forever....

    1. Oh yes Jon, the endless summer vacations, I remember them so well. Now time does fly by so fast. ZIP! I feel the clock ticking.

  4. You really haven't changed all that much! Interesting that your selfie in 2013 was in an examination room.

    Peace <3

    1. Jay,

      Yes, that was me at my urologist's office last week. My life now, a series of visits to doctor's offices. Better than the alternative....I guess.

  5. That is a great video, Ron! It lessened my pain, made me look outside and see what a beautiful day it is--above ground!

    1. David,

      Watching this video made me feel better too especially after my dermatology appointment yesterday (three more cuts and stitches) and my upcoming prostate follow-up "simulation." This video was so true to my (our) situation today isn't it?

  6. Why only today I was frantically looking around the gym for my lost towel, only to 'find it' on my shoulder. The dementia starts.....
