I hear that, my head writes cheques that my body has difficulty honouring, perhaps my post should have read :-

Wisdom and maturity, Glacosamine and heat pads???

Best regards, Bear
It's good that we still have the desire and will to participate actively in life. When it just seems too much trouble, when we automatically pass up active events, we will have lost a great deal.

I still participate in events with youth at church camp, where most my age opt out. (Note: it's appropriate for guest counselors to participate, and I'm sure people in their late twenties or early thirties think nothing of it.) But, it is harder than it used to be.

I wish I had someone to go sledding with. :)

You and me keep popping the pills.

The doctor says its old age, I say well the other knee is the same age and that one doesn't pain me. :D

I thought you might prefer your present self, Redwolf, and I hoped you would feel some measure of satisfaction in preferring the more mature version current version.;)

I, too, prefer my present self (though I do miss some of the powers of youth. I loved when I could learn one textbook of material in a day to report to the advanced study history class, or when I could do a semester's worth of learning in a single week:D). I have stayed faithful to the Lord through some hard times, and He has brought me closer to the finish of the race--not that I know how long it might be for me.

I know which version of myself I would choose. :D


If I could be the man then with the wisdom I have now, that would be the way I'd go.

But if that isn't an option, I'd take the man I am now.

The man then has too much pain ahead of him that he is blissfully unaware of yet.

I wouldn't want to relive that pain.

If the photo had been in color you would have noticed I was beat red with embarrsment.

Still, I guess I wouldn't have traded the memory, or the five minutes of conversation and autograph I got after the show.

This photo:

[bad img]http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a224/redwolf5150/Me-Tammy.jpg[/bad img]

Was taken my last night in the Army in Sept. 1982.

That's Tammy Wynette singing "Stand By Your Man" to me onstage.

I was shooting the show -- which was on Ft. Campbell, KY -- for the post newspaper, and she needed a soldier to sing the song to and there I was, in front of the stage taking pictures. She pointed at me, her manager drug me up there, and the rest is history.

The photo was taken by a photographer from the Clarksville, TN daily newspaper and ran on the front page of the day I mustered out of the service.

Found it on an archive CD of images from my old computer I found while coding my photo CDs for my new filing system.

*sigh*

Them was the good ole days.
