Good rec Ray!

"Life has a way of accelerating as we get older.
The days get shorter, and the list of promises to ourselves gets longer.

One morning, we awaken, and all we have to show for our lives is a litany of "I'm going to," "I plan on", and "Someday, when things are settled down a bit."


I don't believe any of the above simply because I don't live that way and that's what the complete post is all about. Yes, I understand life is short but if you've ever read Heinlein (hey Stevie) you'd know that everyone lives the same amount of time. It's what you put into that life that matters.

I could die tomorrow or I might live to be 100 but either way, I could care less because I'm having fun right now! LOL Even with a migraine the last few days I managed to have an occasional laugh or two. I painted the cats tail (drove my wife crazy by doing that), I watched the dog find out that cats can really be dangerous no matter HOW innocent they look, and I just generally tried to find something funny or good to look at or do.

Anyway, great rec Ray and I couldn't agree with the poster more.
