Okay its not THE Pond - as some call the ocean. And it is not just A Pond - as in smaller than a lake. It is a lake! I enjoy living on it and spending time on my back porch listening to music, gazing at the lake and pondering.

MID LIFE CRISIS

I went to one of my 2 or 3 concerts a year I go to by this old time rock and roll group called the Mid Life Crisis. These guys are very good and the crowd is mostly old baby boomers like me. They play the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and other good, fun stuff.

At one point in the concert last night the group paused to catch their breath and made an announcement about someone in the audience celebrating his 50th birthday. They welcomed him over to “the dark side” and then commented on how young 50 really is compared to the guys in the Mid Life Crisis band. He looked out at the guy and said, “To us you’re just a 4th grader.”

That makes me a 5th grader! And I felt young again.
