I have long contended that people only live to 80 or 90 for the simple reason that, if we lived longer, we would expire the moment we examined the prices at the grocery store or the gas pumps...etc. In fact, I think most things would overwhelm us. Having just celebrated Thanksgiving, I can tell you that remembering and repeating three generations of names can be quit a task.
Gladys says, I should just call all of the young ones nugget. Gladys also believes that we only live to a certain age because our friends (who have gone before us) need a fourth for Bridge and have, therefore, petitioned for our arrival(she's quirky that way).
The upside of long life, of course, is enjoying the three generations of Grizzlers and having the ability to give out hugs and candy from Grandpa's sweater with a generous coating of lint (the candy that is, not the hugs).
A recent study told us something that every child who ever entered his Granparent's house already knew, that being, young people can smell old age. But I tell you this now (before they do a study on it) those of us who are older can always smell the sweet scent of life from (what we once called) the crown of a baby's head. Some used to say you could draw life from inhailing that scent, I'm inclined to believe that one can draw life from a child that lived over 2000 years ago now and at our home we're preparing to celebrate His birth, He too has a crown.
That's my opinion and you're entitled to it.
(Writer's Note): The Greeley Grizzler returns after a short Thanksgiving hiatus in his home with his loved ones for whom he is deeply thankful.
