I agree. Thank you! I apologize for the delayed reply!
Thanks for a good laugh…some memories,,,some current Diane
I can relate to “some memories, some current”! Thank you for your comment, Diane.
Yep I agree………………..
Brilliant words, and I learnt something…… thanks for posting this!
I’m glad you liked it, Ute. Thank you for letting me know!
This did make me laugh, so very true. Thank you for sharing 🙂
I like to make people laugh–especially when it is on purpose! Thank you for your feedback, Manty!
What a fun list of truths…
I agree. I’m glad they were fun for you, too, Mimi.
“jogging on the inside” I am going to remember that one! The whole list is great, and spares no one! 😉
Yeah, that’s a great one. My favorite, of course, is “The best place to be when you’re sad is Grandpa’s lap.” ;-D!
I really enjoyed these lists of lessons learned, Russ. I shared a few of the choicest ones with my “middle-aged” son… He’ll especially like the one about fudge-like families! 🙂 By the way, one of my favorite age-related quotes is: “40 is the old age of youth; 50 is the youth of old age.”
Hi, Jan. It’s great to hear from you. Thank you for sharing: ““40 is the old age of youth; 50 is the youth of old age.” I’d not heard of it. I like it, and it is a bit sobering…
It is a quote from Victor Hugo. I found it in “Leaves of Gold.” Yes, quite sobering – but quite a truism!
