When I'm in my 80s, I hope I still feel like this. :-)

  6. Well, there ya go! I hadn't thought about coming at the subject from the 'age' direction. And I echo the sentiment, should I live that long.

  9. Cool one. Mr. Kirkegaard thinks the pain will out weight the pleasure by then. It is scary to think about getting old. Might be better to be a bug. They can't foresee their own death.

  22. "When I'm in my 80s, I hope I still feel like this. :-)"
    Someone said: “You're never too old to become younger” I like that

  27. hey willie: a favor to ask: would you do a sketch about two friends who live too far from eachother to have daily coffee, gossip, hold hands or lie on the couch and talk philosophy.

    i hope it's ok to ask, and of course it's definitely ok not to expect!

    hope all is well, willie

    :)

  29. why did you say, "wow?"....I guess there is a contagious lonliness sickness going around...summer just cant come quick enough...

  30. A unique thought. Instead of THE 80s, you speak of YOUR 80s. I'm personally not that hopeful about my 80s. Unless I'm dead and floating around like a bug on a leaf in heaven.

    very graceful and romantic
