@Seed,
I think forgetting what people will think about you and doing things that an adult wouldn't do will remind you what it is like to be young...and makes you feel like a kid, lightens your heart, broadens your smile.

Swinging. Really high. It makes me laugh.














I will avoid jumping out of the swing at the top and flying through the air....all good 'til I hit the ground. That reminded me of my age pretty quickly.

Hey Seed

As one who believes in that Wizard of Oz (HA) I gotta be able to write an essay here a? Razz

What keeps me young in mind in an old body - is feeling the wind, rain and sun on my face, taking a step out into the world, putting challenges in front of me and making myself do them, looking at the flowers and nature and capturing it all in my heart - living the images - looking at the stars and the moon - wanting to live every minute and not wishing for the days to end. Nitetime is the best - with peace and quiet. Sitting by my river - hearing the water - every so often just dipping my toes in and feeling how freezing it it. Watching as many sunrises and sunsets as I possibly can. Looking at the smile and wonder on my little boys face...knowing I feel the same as he does - just the body is a wee bit older!!!!

I live and see and feel through the images I look at.... it never ceases to amaze me. They aren't always good visuals - but I still find the wonder in them. Doing the unexpected... and even with the pain - turning the negative into some kinda positive - often that's an effort - but it's worth it in the end.

Never allowing anyone to make me feel old (my body does that on its own) - never allowing anyone to tell me my age when I still feel as tho the world's a waiting and I gotta go get it.

Being around and working with kids. Watching them - listening to them. Living in their world and doing something to make their world a better place.

Later tater.



Very Happy



(I am a kid.... no-one gonna tell me any different Wink )

Yes; I understand.
It CAN be sad, depending on what your target is doing at the time.

Allow me to quote from the Hill Street Blues for the 2nd time,
from the successor to Sgt. Phil Esterhaus: "Do it to them before thay do it to YOU."

That show was on in the 1980s. Maybe that was too long ago for u to have seen it.
Unless re-runs ?

What do u think of the accuracy
of your .50 machinegun ?

@OmSigDAVID,
not much real accuracy to a machine gun. Its more of a walking it in process. but it works ok for what we use it for

That is a beautiful essay, Izzie.
Regarding your last 3 sentences,
I recommend that u do what I do:
Give them cash.
Thay like cash. It has a certain versatility to it.
Because their cash flows are smaller, their acquisition of the cash
will stand in greater contrast to their accustomed paucity of finances
and thay will get an emotionally greater hedonic thrill
than woud someone with a steady salary.
Its a lot of fun; believe me.

If I may offer an experience in support of this:
I met a lady at a summer resort in the early 1990s,
who told me that her oldest son, Andre, was having his 13th birthday.
I was introduced to him. I had a $10 dollar bill and a $20 bill immediately
at hand, and I gave them to him. A few weeks later, while chatting with me,
he said: "David, when u put that money in my hand, that was the most money
I had ever held in my life !" The gift had been a success because it had created JOY.
WON 'T U GIVE IT A SHOT ?

@Seed,

The M2 Browning .50 caliber Machine Gun ( nicknamed Ma Deuce )
had a pretty decent reputation for accuracy. On a semi-automatic basis,
it was even used for sniping. Does the Army still use those ?

@Seed,
Can u tell me if there is a consensus
among the soldiers that u know
as to the competence and reliability of the M-16 ?

This has been a matter of some considerable controversy and heated debate.

@OmSigDAVID,
I do not mean to be rude David. But this is not a place I come to to talk about the army. They army does not keep me young. It does quite the opposite in fact. If you would like to link a thread where I could go and talk about the M-16 I would be happy to go there.
