LOVE these quotes. Here is one I made up one night while drunk..... "my worst dog is better than my best husband" (having had numerous dogs and a couple of husbands)

The only thing "golden" in your golden years is the color of your teeth and urine.

Die young as old as you can!

I was at a Thrift Store recently, and went into the Toy area and I got this childlike high from buying a group of plastic animals, where I have set them down in various parts of my gravely yard here in Tucson. Perhaps that big plastic Lion, the three puppy dogs and that gray Rat will deter people from burglarizing my home!

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” ...


I guess the meaning of this to me is while I tried to enjoy my life as it happened, looking back now I wish I had enjoyed and savored the sweetness of each moment a little longer.

Having children at a much older age has made me realize that each day of their lives is a memory that will last a lifetime. Not sure if I was mature enough to have known that in my younger years
