    The beauty of being old
    No longer scared to be bold
    I can now say more in a look
    Than a young man can say in a book
    No patience - little fear
    Couldn’t give a **** who’s near
    And even less about what they wanna hear
    So skilled in controversy
    I may call you a fool stupid or un-cool
    And though you suspect that you’ve been insulted
    Can’t match wits so after a few failed tries you finally just drop it
    Its good to be old
    Now don’t get me wrong
    I don’t need a walker or a gun
    Just a few more years before the setting of my sun
    Fortunately father time has been more then fair
    And unless I told you so you wouldn’t even know I was there
    And that’s why it is good to be old

    Glad to be in good company!

    I am in that club and I do love
    that I am young enough
    to still enjoy the world
    and old enough to know better
    what one can say by there
    actions is always much better!
    Blessings on your House!

    most times body language or a certain look can say so much more than any words we may speak....

    well spoken club member

    the thing is that so many want to preach what they dont want to live, and to me dont put on your bumper what is not in your heart.
