    George Carlin’s View on Aging

    Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get
    old is when we’re kids? If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so
    excited about aging that you think in fractions.
    “How old are you?” “I’m four and a half!” You’re never thirty-six
    and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key.

    You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to
    the next number, or even a few ahead.
    “How old are you?” “I’m gonna be 16!” You could be 13, but hey,
    you’re gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life . . You become
    21. Even the words sound like a ceremony . . YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!

    But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound
    like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There’s no fun now,
    you’re Just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong? What’s changed?

    You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’re PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on
    the brakes, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50

    And your dreams are gone.

    But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn’t think you would!

    So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.

    You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it’s a
    day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!

    You get into your 80’s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT
    lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn’t end there. Into the
    90’s, you start going backwards; “I Was JUST 92.”

    Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become
    a little kid again. “I’m 100 and a half!”

    May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!


    1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and
    height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay “them!”

    2 Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

    3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts,
    gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. “An idle mind is the devil’s
    workshop.” And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s.

    4. Enjoy the simple things.

    5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

    6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person,
    who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are

    7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it’s family, pets,
    keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your

    8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable,
    improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

    9 Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next
    county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

    10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every


    Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the
    moments that take our breath away.

    And if you don’t send this to at least 8 people – who cares?

    But do share this with someone
    We all need to live life to its fullest each day!!

    Have a wonderful day!!!!!!!


    He is so good only seen him once in brunswick a few years back what a great show !!!!


    For me it was 29….and it has been 29 every year since then.

    Now I don’t even know how old I really am. LOL

    But I really feel like I’m 23.

    Except today, I feel 60

    Go figure!


    I still feel 16, and today, after a few crashes trying new stuff I feel more alive


    BMX is forever man.
