AGE

How OLD are you?

You are only as old as you FEEL!

But, what if you have a Teenager TRAPPED inside a 68-year-old BOD with Aches N' Pains that feel like you are 86?

THIS - my Friends N' Fiends - is where HUMOR helps a lot!

To BE - or Not to BE -
THAT - is the Question!

and the Answer is ...
opening Envelope ...
stuttering ...
DRUM ROLL ...

"THANK YOU, LORD, FOR ONE MORE BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL DAY !!!
