Happy Birthday 'thomaspain'!

   

P.S. addendum to yesterdays email ~ More thoughts on growing older...

Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional. Insanity is my only means of relaxation.

Forget the health food; I need all the preservatives I can get. Blessed are
those who hunger and thirst, for they are sticking to their diets.
 
You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair
that you once got from a roller coaster.
 
Perhaps you know why women over 50 don't have babies:
They would put them down somewhere and forget where they left them.
 
My mind not only wanders, sometimes it leaves completely.
 
Every time I think about exercise, I lie down till the thought goes away.
 
God put me on Earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right
now I am so far behind, I will live forever.
 
It's frustrating when you know all the answers, but nobody bothers to ask
you the questions.
 
If you can remain calm, you just don't have all the facts.
 
There cannot be a crisis this week; my schedule is already full.
 
The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right
place, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
"At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to state this or that or the other, but it is "not done".
...Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with.

Is Tom really 80?
Nobody censors what they agree with

Well, I have not seen his Birth Certificate. If he is 80, he sure is still a wide-awake gentleman.

He sounds that way to me, too.
