Thank you for your sage advice! As to your question about what to be when you grow up.....don't.....seek out every experience that presents itself and roust those that hold tight to secluded places.......for it's not about being the one with the most toys that wins, but rather the most experience. My grandfather told me once....."We live till we die, but it's the knowledgeable man that wrings out the most from the journey." And this one is my favorite: "Oh, and son.......don't ever make excuses."
Indeed!! I like your grandpa's advice! My grandfather was a mean old Coonass who's only advice to me was, don't turn anything down unless it's face down!! He had his last heart attack when he was 77, the woman he was with those final moments was 33. I think I have disappointed him by not adhering to such base notions, although it took me a long time to see the folly! Still, he went out in style!
