In-your-face stuff from an opinionated
rural north Idaho housewife.
You will know when it happens Patrice. You will start to feel pain in places you didn't even know were there. There is something about going over that imaginary point that has to be overcome with mental toughness.I am nearing 59 but I still do some of the most difficult and dangerous work on my job site. I am no different than any body else. You just have to be more alert and use your accumulated knowlege to press on. Especially if you have a hostile, never did any of this stuff, young jerk of a boss making it more difficult. He is boss #5 and I will see him go also. Even in America that kind of incompetence will fail given time.
This is hilarious, and oh so true.Kay

It is not for the lazy in this economy either Terry.:( Look at Obama and all the top dogs of D.C. They faithfully burn off a good hundred thousand gallons of kerosene flying around every single day. Then they get to work shutting down the oil production business when they get back to that snakepit...Err.. I mean D. C.
Um....I forgot what I was going to say. Darn!Anonymous PatriotUSA
I think there's a certain drama to every "decade birthday", for one reason or the other....what's nice about the later decades birthdays is that there's less "to still be done" than there are in the younger years.....and a window of enjoying all you have accomplished before the "I forgot..." part sets in, LOL......The trick is to get to that point where you are truly happy with what you have created with your life, before you forget what that is.....
I hear you naturegirl. I believe the trick is to use what you have learned to benefit someone,anyone. It will probably cost you to try. in fact I am sure you will pay a price. But what do we have to lose? I had better stop right here.
Ah a trip down Memory Lane.. Why again??
Perhaps George Carlin had the right idea:"I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating, being fed, and you finish off as an orgasm.”
