I have spent the last few days rebuilding my computer after a few problems..............seems to me computers are like only have to blink twice and something new arrives.........It was three years ago when I put my last computer together and how things move on........
What I would like to say is I just cant keep up with all the new posts/photos ..........feels I am missing out but just don't have the time to keep up.......then life is like that all the time.........
My mother once told me that time goes faster the older you the time I did not think it was more than just an older view of life..........but now I think it is true...........cant wait until I retire.........5years time..............
Wonder if anyone thinks along these lines..........?

Life is like a spool of thread. When it's full, you unwind some, and you don't see any difference in the size of the spool, but when you get to the halfway point, you unwind the same amount, and you see a big difference in the size of the spool.

Very profound .

I hope your spool has lots of thread left .

Yes I agree ,when you are ten your Dad says "you can have a new bike when you're twelve " and those two years are so long ... But when you get to fifty you just kind of get used to being fifty and you're sixty ... how did that happen?....jeff...

I turned 40 last month, never wanted to be in my 40's, alway liked the idea of being 30 something, When I got to 40, found out its just the same as being 30 but with a few less mortgage payments.

On that note, when I reached 40, it was just the same as being 30 but with a few more aches and pains

Goodness knows what state my knees will be in by the time I reach 50.

There are some things that don't change though: the pleasure of a quiet moment to read a book (remember those?) or being able to soak-up the sight, sound and smell of somewhere. I've lost count of the number of times I've taken my camera with me to a specific location only to have enjoyed the experience of the place so much I forgot to take some pictures (maybe another sign of age...)

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.
