    I've been blessed with 2 grandchildren so far and I have high hopes of many more..:rock:

    Still though.. when I'm referred to as Grandpa .. it feels kinda odd, like I'm old or something... which I guess I am...:eusa_doh:.. and...:lol:

    That's what I dun get about people who fear aging. They want to live to be 100, but only enjoy life while their in their 20's and 30's? WTF?

    First, there's the rush to grow up, then the wish to slow it down.. but alas.. time flies, it seems, as you grow older...

    Me.. I don't really mind getting older but I regret what I'm going to miss...:(

    I'm good with dying, Lumpy. What would be the alternative? Living to 150 years old? 200?

    Would you be any more ready to go? And what quality of life could such people have?

    I suppose... I'll decide on dying when I'm actually faced with it...:lol:

    When I see loved ones dealt the, "death card" and I see their desperation for life with all the pain and suffering, I'm not quite so cavalier..

    I have had the very opposite experiences. Some people I've known who have died have been quite at peace about it. And of course, most everyone I know my age is talking about it.

    I have experienced that also... when the acceptance kicks in..

    I'm starting to feel sad now... You got something funny?
