As a young man everyone thought I was much older than my years; now I'm 66 and everyone thinks I'm nearer fifty........go figure. Oh! and we were blessed with the birth of grandchild number ELEVEN (Abagail, 7 lbs, 11 oz - Tues 2/17). Oldest of three great-grandchildren just turned two, and my #2 daughter (who is old enough to know better!) is expecting in early May. Her fourth.

I will be 40 in June. Typing that is almost sending me into shock. I always considered people who are 40 to be 'those old folk'.

Was I arrogant or what when I was young. I thought I was better than the 40 year olds. More beautiful, smarter, faster...... I used to think it about the 30 year olds 15 years ago.

Old enough to know better and wished I didn't....
As you can see I am "DC's Grandma" so take it from there.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

I remember talking to my sister (5 years younger than me) when I was about to have a birthday (around 20) and her saying "gosh you're old". I was a bit gobsmacked.
