Yes, he is a rare sight. Fights with his wife every day. She nags and screams and slams the cabinets and slams the doors. He drinks beer wears pants that are falling down, has tons of tatoos, shaves his head...

That is a good point. Nobody did, they were afraid of me. Using hindsight I can see lots of bad mistakes and a sort of progression to the person I am now.

At what age did you use to consider yourself a kid?

My grandfather was married when he was around 14 - 15. They had a child, my father. They had a farm.

After that generation they started calling people who were 17-18, kids. They were not trusted enough to be considered adults. They were not old enough to vote or drink. To own anything or operate anything. With the responsibility taken away from the young people began to act the role they were expected to act. This change in opinion is what helped to create the unrest we have today in my country.

If 17-18 are kids, then am I an infant?

By the way, what is the unrest in your country all about?

Poor education, poor health plans, lazy people, poor leadership, uneducated people who only only know bad music, drugs and crime. Disrespect of the elderly, abuse of children, the philosophy of caveat emptor. Too many attorneys because of dishonest people and criminals. No religious beliefs, no moral center, no consideration for the environment. No care for the homeless. No gratitude or patriotism for their country. Phony politicians who lie daily, corrupt police, ghettos, slums...

92???? My God

By the way, I think Alokananda has cooled down a little. What should I be doing?

Hmmmm, just being yourself. That will be hard enough.

Why should it be hard? Am I not myself?

A man is three men:

The man he thinks he is, the man everyone else thinks he is and the man he really is.

Therefore, no matter what I think I am just myself.

Did I get it correct?

Beats me! Philosophical stuff like that quote makes less sense to me than mathematics does. Unfortunately if I read something I tend to remember bits of it that I can quote later.

Hi Sarah;

Actually, I am older and uglier.

Ever seen the old, old movie, the creature from the black lagoon?

Here I am doing some yardwork.

Here I am trying to teach my favorite gal the Mambo. She was a little tentative at first but she soon got into the beat. We went on Star Search and won 2nd prize!
