Enjoying My Later Years
July 16, 2017 4:04pm CST
My body I'd willingly trade it's falling apart I'm afraid, but my wits are still sharp so you'll not hear me carp and my jocular vein's not decayed. Perhaps I've one foot in the grave, belong to the age of the cave, to hear heavy breathing I'd have to go jogging if I do, I'll give you a wave. I'll flash a nice smile when we meet, with teeth that are white and so neat, of course they're my own! they aren't just on loan, to prove it I've got the receipt. Though looks may be plundered by time I've gained other things, which is fine, my wisdom's increased my work time's decreased, and now I've found I can do rhyme. These last years bring blessings you see, from sadness and gloom I am free, and I've no regrets it's as good as it gets, this world's still a fun place to be.

I am with you on this, Jabo. I count my blessings including some I like to forget as they rear their ugly heads from time to time. I do not have time to stay in regrets and I shoe them away as they try to impact my time. Overall, I thank my stars for this ride as my tenure here sees an inevitable end. I have a hope we all will meet again even in happier climes - siva

@jaboUK - Ms Janet - Well, I kept on thinking, "Janet, Old Girl, it is really about time for another good one from you." And here it is. As Marvin Zindler used to say all the time, "It's hell to be o-l-d." Leave it to you to show how wrong he always was. -Gus-
