Where Has This Year Gone?
« on: September 06, 2010, 12:30:05 PM »
Is it just me or did this year just fly by?

I mean, where the heck did spring go and summer, now we're practically in winter and I'm thinking about spring again and Bud3.

Is this what happens when you get old?  :shock:

Just took the jetskis out of the water.   Got to ride only 2 weekends this summer.   Kids in school already.  And deer season starting up this month and I have nowhere to go.  I have no time for nothing.  And my hair is still falling out.

I know what you mean JP. Peggy said the other day "we need to start Christmas shopping". I was like.....whaaa?

Allen, shave the hair off already...you wouldn't believe the freedom!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

my questions are...

as you get older do the years go by more quickly?

is this related to Einstein's relativity theory?

Tecumseh, time sure seems to be escaping me these past few years, that's for certain.

It is like this. When a child is born that first day is the longest one ever. After all it is his whole life.

At age two a year is half your age so the second year went by twice as fast as the first year.

By age fifty a year is one fiftieth of your life and it just zipped by.

JP, hmm, words of wisdom.

Fast, you wanna see fast, take a walk in my shoes.  You never in your widest dreams could ever imagine how fast time has gone by for me  :-P  :-P  :lol: .  Been in our new home and area for three months, now, given or taken a couple of days, here and there, now that is fast.

Yep, yep agreed, I think as we age, these days pass far more quickly, than those days of yon, those days of childhood bliss, where the day never seemed to end, just carried on and on and on.  I truly cannot believe that three months has passed since we made that great move -- to this nevernerverland of fun and love.  I am happy.  We are all happy.  And most of all, and I can speak so freely, as I know that all my forum friends here love me, as I love them, that I am soon to be back, speaking and talking with you all, through this cyber of space, my Bros and Sistas, we are one.  Yes, dear pal, JP, these days are passing quickly, but as the old saying goes, "time flies when you're having fun" and it sounds to me, that you are having fun.  Actually, I can't believe that it has been coming close on to over two years since Whoppo got his butt kicked, sending him off to a new and glorious place, where he actually knows that he was not bossman, second or third in line to several other dudes.  Poor Whoppo, too bad you never took a midnight trip through that cyber of space and took him home to your place.  You may have got your butt nearly kicked too by this dude, you then would totally understand what a gander (well, he was a drake) bite felt like  :evil: :evil: :evil:  :lol: ;) 8-) :shock:.  Love ya, fellow friend.  Don`t give a care about how quickly the days are going, harbour them with great zest and zeal.  Have that most awesome day, love it, care for it, it is yours, you make those days to be what you so chose, health wishes to us all.  Cindi

Well looky there, our beloved "Rock Lady" shows herself.  :-D

Good to see you drop in Cindi, you can rest assured everyone's missed you.

We even got Jerrymac back. He's been postin' away.

We will be waiting for you and your mini novels (I mean posts  :-D ) to come back to us.

Glad you are doing well and that whoppo is in a good place.

I really care about him.

Oh, and you too.  ;)  :-*

Where indeed has time gone?

Perhaps someone finally found a way to trap time in a bottle.

to save every day til eternity passes to spend them with someone they love.

(I love that song)

Problem is, they might not have thought that by saving that time, they have taken it from all the rest of us, eh?

just thinking out loud,

My son's birthday was July 27 and this morning when I was dropping him off at pre k he told me that he wanted his birthday party this time at Chuckie Cheese.  Just out of the blue as we were walking to school.   He was really getting ready for it a year out.  But he could not see that it was a year out.   The mind of a 4 year old.

Well I truly love what Cindi has written here. I agree with her and say, don't worry about the time flying.

Yeah Irwin, you're probably right man, but Father time does have a way of catching up on us and Mother nature ain't always so kind.

The real sign of a man getting older is when those young honeys that wanted to date you, now "respect" you and call you "Mr." and even worse "Sir"!

When they call you "Sir", well, that's just the icing on the cake, you might as well go get your tomb stone engraved then!  :-D

I dunno about that.

I always call folks, "sir" or mister or Ma'am or miss or whatever, especially if I don't know their names.

I hate when i go to a bank or somewhere and they think they can call you by the first name that is on your account or drivers license.

I appreciate them using 'sir' or Mr Sandoval when talking to me, especially in business situations or kids at my kids school, etc..

I insist on showing proper respect and I expect it as well.  Use of "sir" etc.. isn't limited to age for me.  so  I guess it doesn't affect me that way.

what makes me feel the passing of time is having daughters.  Man, before  I had kids,  I felt no remorse at getting an eyeful of a cutie.  Now I'll start to take notice of an attractive female and the very next thing I register is how old she looks in comparison to my daughters.

takes the wind out of my sails every time.
