Kid's keep you young

I wished I'd kept track of how many people have said that to us.

When we're talking to someone about our family and I saying something like, "This sure isn't how we planned to spend our retirement," they say, "Well, the kids will keep you young."

And guess what? It's true.

I retired at age 51 so that we could care for these kids and 8 years later, I'm still 51.

March 27, 1951 in History
Frank Sinatra recorded "I'm a Fool to Want You"

Poetic justice.

He also sang, "I did it my way."

I think it will be favourite in hell.

I have no doubt that, in the unlikely event that there is a hell, it would be primarily populated by sad sack souls whose only motivation for leading morally upstanding lives during their time on earth was their fear of damnation. Think about that.
