STUFF:

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth - think about Algebra!

You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks!

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is a nice change from being young. Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable!

Have a good week - MB
