    Wow sad to hear about Miro...I warned him about talking shit about Geddy's voice

    On the whole getting old sucks thing I really dig Grim's perspective and also get Miro's about the physicality deterioration part..

    As Einstien Magoo mention the Byrds song Turn turn turn...That's the deal... My Mom @ 88 joked that getting old isn't for sissies...
    My Gramps @ the same age told me...Son if I had known I was going to live this long I'd of taken better care of myself.

    At 67 other than the skin cancer torture, physically on the joint side of life I am still doing awesome considering my very body beating career as a tile setter between 25 and 45....Definitely have lost some strength, bruise a hell of lot easier and wrenching on the cars is a little more painful...

    The skin cancer thing really grabbed me by the balls, threw me on the ground and let me know dude your days are numbered. I am REALLY grateful I have been able to close deaths door temporarily and recognize I might only make it a year more or I could go another 20...Hoping I can get at least 10 decent ones in before I have to say adios.

    Just spent the night with my 2 daughters and 6 grandkids doing the Halloween thing and I can attest that on that level getting old does not suck.

    Wrote a song @ 1987 after my Pops passed reflecting on time.

    It's funny when we are young we can't wait to grow up, ride a bike, drive a car, buy alcohol and then poof your 30 and going whoa...time is starting to fly, and by 60 I describe it something like this....They hold up your birthday cake and it has 60 candles you turn around and there they are with one with 61 SHIT time speeds up as we get older.....It took forever for me to be able to turn 16 and be able to drive...

    The song runs in the vein of of Ecclesiastics and turn turn turn

    There's a time in life when your just too young
    There's a time in life when life is just no fun

    Chorus.....
    Time
    Ticking away
    Year after month after week, day after day
    Time is the enemy
    It ticks past you becomes a memory
    Time's an illusion
    But it sure feels real


    There's a time in life when your just too old
    There's a time in life when life is just so cold

    Chorus.....
    Time
    Ticking away
    Year after month after week, day after day
    Time is the enemy
    It ticks past you becomes a memory
    Time's an illusion
    But it sure feels real

    There a time in life when there's no more time
    There's a time in life when you must cross the finish line

    Chorus.....
    Time
    Ticking away
    Year after month after week, day after day
    Time is the enemy
    It ticks past you becomes a memory
    Time's an illusion
    But it sure feels real

    I'll leave on this

    Getting old sucks, but until the alternative truly seems like a better option, savor and enjoy the time you have here to the fullest of your ability.

    Any day above ground is a good day!

    Good night to the Euro dudes and to all the North Americaer's here get out there and seize this awesome day!
