I graduated from high school in 1957. We had a high school reunion just recently. It as nice to see these friends from the past. I think this was the best reunion we have ever had. Everybody’s old and just glad to be alive.
We have lost to death 30 of our class mates. As I remember our class was somewhere around 100 seniors. So it seems that 30% have died. That’s a sobering thought. Remember, life is precious.
Some people don’t seem to age. I noticed at our reunion that several looked like they did when we graduated. But many didn’t.
Here’s an example of aging that I saw recently on the internet. The 2 pictures below are of a famous movie star when she was young and famous, and now more recent. Would you ever of guessed that Brigitte Bardot would have aged like this?
Youth and beauty are temporary.
I like what Mark Twain once said, “There are two times in a man's life when he should not speculate: when he can't afford it, and when he can.”
Honesty is the best policy,
but insanity is a better defense.

Joke of the Day
An older man and his friend were having a conversation one night, and the topic drifted to memory, or lack of it. The first man mentions to his friend:
"My wife and I have been having a hard time remembering very simple things lately, and a friend recommended that we see this memory specialist doctor."
"Oh, well how is it working out for you?" asked the friend. "Has it helped either one of your memory's?"
"Very much so!" replied the man. "The results are incredible!!"
"What's the name of this doctor?" asked his friend.
"Hmm, its a really long last name I know," he replied. "Well, help me out for a second. What's the name of the one kind of flower, with the thorns, and that grows on a bush?"
"A rose?" said his friend.
"Yes, Yes! A rose!" says the man. "Rose dear, what's the name of that memory doctor we've been seeing?"
