"When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant
I could hardly stand to have the old man around.
But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at
how much the old man had learned in seven years."
Mark Twain
[Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835-1910) American author and humorist

And yet it wasn't until I was 40 that I discovered how much my Dad and I still did not know... ;-) I am afraid that by the time I figure life out, I will nearly be dead!

    Let sleeping dogs lie. Never call your wife by her name. Always use your blinker. To climb a mountain in the night, takes faith in that which is not seen. Be as good as you can be. Some one is always watching. Experience is our guide. Whether your own or another's .

    Sorry Jim. Writing on my cell phone in my rig early in the morning dark I don't seem to write what I am thinking. Meant know it all youth.
