    For what it's worth, the WWII 10th Mountain Division Veterans just held what they say will be their last reunion. Just not enough attendance anymore.

    Eh? What's that you're saying? Speak up! Ma, help me find my gun. What? I'm wearing it? Oh. Where are my glasses?

    My dad used to say "Growing old ain't for sissies!" And he weren't one! I hope I can age as gracefully as that man did. And yes, I do think I am a lot wiser than that twenty- and thirty-something kid I left behind years ago! Although if you ask my wife, you might get a different opinion...
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson

    For some of us, that has nothing to do with getting old.

    I had a real good comment about this. . . . but I forgot what it was.

    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    It takes guts to get old and also it hurts a man's pride to know that you aren't as fast or as strong as you once were.As Clint says,a man has to know his own limitations. sj
