<sigh> Well, some of us OF's are compassionately attempting to keep the bar as low as possible. Cuz the next generation of OF's is going to be carrying their a-holes in one hand and pawing their hemorrhoids with the other, and they could take some terrible falls.

Thank you posting that! I laughed out loud so much it’s a good thing nobody can hear it away from our house. Sent it to some friends, who are not-new old people.

Great Stuff!
But I must report that none of my grandkids are remotely interested in my history, and my stepdaughters have no interest in who my family might have been.

I wasn’t interested in family lore, either, until we were at my aunt’s house sitting around the kitchen table. My mother and my aunt were reminiscing over their childhood in Nebraska. I loved it. Kept asking for more stories.

Maybe it was the utter unlikelihood (to us) of these “old” people ever having been children.

Funny video. I'm going to pass it on to one of my friends.

Us kids grew up with my mom's stories about spending summers on a relative's farm and stories about all the relatives. Knowing that I've probably forgotten most of them, and wanting to preserve them, on the monthly weekends near the end of her life when I visited my mom to take her shopping, I'd set an iPod in record mode on the center console of the car and ask her to retell the stories.

When I eventually download them to the computer, I'll burn some CDs and send them to all the nieces and nephews so they can hear the stories. My mom's gone now, but not her experiences and stories.

The laugh of the day!!

This is so on target--as he went down the list I could visualize people I know who are guilty of at least one infarction. I myself (I'm 67) have been known to post pictures of an airplane wing or two and photos of meals dining in or out--with an occasional selfie thrown in for good measure.

This is who we have become since Facebook and social media came on the scene....

I've done all this extensive genealogy and my daughter and granddaughter have absolutely no interest in knowing who their great-great-great-grandparents were and their stories. No interest at all. Of course, I'm sure I didn't either at an earlier age, but once that's gone, it's gone.
