Greg that is great.  And as you suggest, most of us have been guilty of looking a someone and thinking "look at that ancient geezer" just before the realization hits that they may be about our age.

Greg Cook

Thanks for the responses. The best way to feel good about your age is to look for people younger than yourself and realize how much better you look than them. (Just sayin!)

Michael Elliott

Based on the photo of you and Payne Stewart, I can see why you'd say that.  Lookin' good!

Hey everyone, since the last Tuesday of December is Christmas day, we will not have our monthly breakfast at Kenos. Instead a few of us are meeting Tuesday December 11th at Linbrook bowl around 12 noon have some lunch and even bowl a game or two after lunch. Come on down and join us if you're in the area.

Merry Christmas all Savannaa alumnus! I've been thinking of you as we celebrate God's gift of Love to us this Season and hope you enjoy a happy and healthy New Year! Every time I hear Silent Night or Stille Nacht, being sung in German at all the many concerts I've been attending I think back to Mrs Wampler's 9th grade German class when we all had to learn the lyrics in German and I still remember them. I know many of you probably remember them too, don't you? I think you John Young, Rchard Maurer, Bill Mahon, and Judy Hollander were in that class, and who else?

Joan, your comments on Stille Nacht are particularly impactful to me right now as I just saw a powerful musical play about the Christmas Truce on the front lines in December 1914 in WWI France.  The name of the show is All is Calm:  The Christmas Truce of 1914.  Do see it if you ever get the opportunity.  

Check out www.alliscalm.org

Thanks, Michael. I did check out the All is Calm, the Christmas Truce of 1914, website and the trailer looks amazing. I also watched the cast performance in Grand Central Station. It would be something to see that unexpectedly. Very moving. I hope yours and Debby's Christmas Day is inspiring as well!

Merry Christmas to all my fellow Rebels, have a wonderful holiday season and a very happy new year.

Greg Cook

I have only one resolution: To rediscover and remember the difference between wants and needs. May you have all you need and want all you have. Happy New Year!

Mitch Wise

Great thought. More need to understand the difference

No problem Mitch, it's a great message that needs to be said more often - Bonne année

Merci, mon Ami.

The new senior pick-up line (for the singles among us):

An elderly gentleman walks into an upscale cocktail lounge. He is in his mid-eighties, very well-dressed, hair well-groomed, great looking suit, flower in his lapel and smelling slightly of an expensive after shave. He presents a very nice image.
Seated at the bar is a classy looking lady in her mid-seventies.
The sharp old gentleman walks over and sits alongside her. He orders a drink and takes a sip. He slowly turns to the lady and says:
"So, tell me ... do I come here often?"

Greg Cook

Why I love getting older!

1. My goal for 2018 was to lose 10 pounds. Only have 14 to go.

2. Ate salad for dinner. Mostly croutons & tomatoes. Really just one big round crouton covered with tomato sauce. And cheese. FINE, it was a pizza. I ate a pizza, are you happy?
3. How to prepare Tofu:
a. Throw it in the trash
b. Grill some meat, chicken, or fish
4. I just did a week's worth of cardio after walking into a spider web.
5. I don't mean to brag, but I finished my 14-day diet food supply in 3 hours and 20 minutes.
6. A recent study has found women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it.
7. Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

Why I love getting older!

Part II

8. Senility has been a smooth transition for me.

9. Remember back when we were kids and every time it was below zero outside they closed school? Yeah, Me neither.
10. I may not be that funny, or athletic, or good looking, or smart, or talented... I forgot where I was going with this.
11. I love being over 70, I learn something new every day and forget 5 others.
12. A thief broke into my house last night. He started searching for money so I woke up and searched with him.
13. After sending this commentary out I think I'll just put an "Out of Order" sticker on my forehead and call it a day.
14. November 4, 2018 marked the end of Daylight Saving Time. Hope you didn't forget to set your bathroom scale back 10 pounds on Saturday night.
15. Just remember, once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed.

Jerry Labuda

I hope everyone had a great holiday season. Now that the holidays are over, we're going to start up our monthly breakfasts again. Our next breakfast is this Tuesday , January 29th, at 9:30 AM at Keno's Restaurant at 2661 LaPalma in Ahaheim. Come on down, hope to see you there.

Gordon Reed

While we are looking at opportunities for the new year, lets not forget the chance we have to make a difference in the high school experience of the present students. I am going to encourage you all to contribute to the "legacy fund". It will matter to those students to know their needs have not been forgotten but us old farts.


01/28/19 06:18 AM #1131    

 

Michael Elliott

Great thought Gordon. An opportunity to make a difference.

Greg Cook

In case you're wondering what's to become of the younger generations, consider this: That rebellious rock and roll from the 60s and 70s is now the acceptable, soothing home depot background music.


02/05/19 06:42 PM #1133    

 

Richard Maurer

Greg, absolutely right on target.  As the Rolling Stones are now elevator music, it is clear that the controversial things of one generation just sink into a background of different tastes, different choices, everyone moving on.  So what does it mean?  I don't know.  Just enjoy the sounds and the culture of your generation.  Later generations will move on, not necessarily better, but different.

Greg Cook

Spot on Richard. I remember the pushback our parent's generation had to rock n roll and hippies. I hear that same pushback today toward rap and millenials.
