In the mirror, thank you. Today it's my day, sooner than you think it will be yours. I've used this quote before. "As you are now so once was I, as I am now one day you'll be."  If you're lucky enough to lead a long life HOORAY!,  not everyone lives to collect Social Security. If anything, youth should envy the elderly and pray they survive as long. It ain't bad at all, unless you have ill health. Health is God's most precious gift, without it, nothing has meaning.

True words friend.... You may look old but you still have more kick than half the people my age.
I could live to be 200 years old and never collect SSI LOL

G'day Bonghit,

Thank you for your question.

Generally, with respect. They have made a huge contribution. My Dad is now 80 so I now have personal experiences with looking after them after he was hospitalised late last year for a few months.

Regards

Most of them are good to sit down and chat with, but some of them are quite cold, my fav conversation was with an old lady who went to Stanford and harvard and she also went to the march on Washington (MLK)
