Rambling thoughts from an Old Man!

patsmart 3

When I was young, I, like most kids, and even some young adults never really thought about the future or what I would leave behind. A major fault as I look back on my life. I have many memories but few pictures, keepsakes, or a journal of my past.

It seemed like too big a bother at the time to take the time. I have had many adventures in my 70 years. I still remember them, but the details and participants have faded with the years. I look back and ask myself, who was that guy or what was that girl’s name. I wish I would have gotten a picture of that spaceship, but that’s a story for another time.

Pictures, keepsakes, and journals are great, but one should not discount the time spent with other family members. Wouldn’t it be great to sit down with a Grandparent and hear their stories of times long past and be able to pass those stories as well as your own to Your Grandchildren? Here again, one should not rely on memory alone. Take a tape recorder (yes, I am that old). Ok, take some recording device and ask questions, Who, What, Where, and How.

Don’t be surprised if you are surprised. That old man or woman was once young with an adventurous soul. Time is fleeting. Don’t lose it.

  1. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say wonderful blog!

    1. I apologize for the inconvenience. You’re right it must have been something really odd, I see this comment but not the other longer one. If this happens again I may need to report it to the Theme maker as a bug.
      We are continually trying to improve. Hopefully we will continue to provide useful information and even get better in the future, much better!
