    A Little Poem
    by Author Unknown

    Another year has passed
    and we're all a little older.
    Last summer felt hotter
    and winter seems much colder.

    There was a time not long ago
    when life was quite a blast.
    Now I fully understand
    about 'Living in the Past'

    We used to go to weddings,
    football games and lunches.
    Now we go to funeral homes,
    and after-funeral brunches.

    We used to have hangovers,
    from parties that were gay.
    Now we suffer body aches
    and wile the night away.

    We used to go out dining,
    and couldn't get our fill.
    Now we ask for doggie bags,
    come home and take a pill.

    We used to often travel
    to places near and far.
    Now we get sore asses
    from riding in the car.

    We used to go to nightclubs
    and drink a little booze.
    Now we stay home at night
    and watch the evening news.

    That, my friend is how life is,
    and now my tale is told.
    So, enjoy each day and live it up ...
    before you're too damned old!

    Tex that is my new year resolution . I live each the best I can, because tomorrow maybe the end. Enjoy your friends each and every day. When they walk pass you as you laying in state, and comment that you was just great the other day. Just a reminder that your runway is getting shorter every day :laugh: :laugh:

    Great poem Tex, and also a great comment Hollis. I know Im getting old cuz I cant stand to be around kids any more and I used to love children and it hurt all over to get up from a chair so all them muscles and bones do creak, moan, and groan.
