It's Not For Sissies
Today I will join a number of friends in what has evolved into a monthly birthday party for the appropriate persons. It will not be an especially serious gathering, but it does give us an excuse to eat out and visit with others of like mind.
It is true that each of us is growing older, and that some of us are struggling with the everlasting problems of old age: unfamiiar bodies, thinning hair, and shrinking resources. Old age ain't for sissies.
One thing this monthly meeting allows is the opportunity to be silly, a very important skill each of us misplaced during long and useful lives. I have an idea it is a good thing to get out of the house, to eat food we did not cook, and to laugh at things that are more ironic than funny.
Getting older allows you to do that, and I am glad that I have the opportunity to see my friends each month and let it all hang out. It makes it a lot easier to stay on the sunny side! Terry
