    Default My youth

    As several of you noticed I had a birthday this weekend. I turned around and my youth seemed to be missing. I?m not sure what happened to it. I was really enjoying it, having a good time doing the thing that young people like to do. If you happen upon it I would really like it back, it is probably well worn and many a little tattered and torn in a few places but it was really a good one.

    In the meantime I will try to replicate my youth as much as possible and try not to slip into the "Ole Fool" category. Your help in this effort will be appreciated.

    As long as you are a "good old boy", you will be just fine with me!

    When someone makes a comment about how "old" you are, just reply with: "Age is a mind over matter thing and I don't mind because you don't matter!"

    You are #1 in my book......

    Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.

    I'm now over 64, & the youth I experience now is what I can share with my 7 beloved Grandchildren. Believe me, it beats the hell outta my OWN youth! Teaching them my love & respect of God, family, friends, & the outdoors will keep me young until they "plant" me.
    I may be an old fool, certainly not financially well healed, but I sure am a happy old fool, & a very RICH one at that!

    All you need to do is re-trace your steps. If you don't find it, you still have the memories

    I put mine up on a shelf 68 years ago so I wouldn't loose it like you..... Guess what....Now I can't remember where the heck I put it. Guess I'll just do like MSD53X said, just retrace my steps and have some good memories.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YA!!!!!

    A little like Wes had stated in another post, I had gotten tired of looking at that stolen vest. I would love the the owner to get it back but really did not have much hope it would happen. As I told someone the other day I am composed of a 53 year old man trying to make a 12 year old boy behave. He is not alway successful, so life is a good bit of fun mixed with the maladies age and maturity carries along with it. I hope the plans I have for a busy 2011 work out for the work and fun aspects ot it. I know if I go to Nashville I have to stop in Tullahoma or Jack will come and pee on my porch, he said so. I don't know what the HOA would say about that but I don't think they would be happy.

    Mike,
    You're a man after my own 75 year old heart.
