Pondering Again About Men Of A Certain Age

 

 

 

Man Of A Certain Age

 

I was listening to an episode of All Things Considered on National Public Radio with a segment where host Terry Gross was interviewing Ray Romano, the stand-up comedian most familiar to people for his real-life based television sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond".  Mr. Romano who later went on to other things also spoke of his later show "Men Of A Certain Age". 

 

Not as financially successful as his previous effort, it was still awarded certain accolades.  His thoughts brought me to ponder.   As if I needed much prodding.  Pondering Prodding.   

 

Anyway I was pondering about men of a certain age after all I am one. I guess I attained that status at some point in my past. I imagine.   My mind continues to jump as it is known to do.  After a while I just ignore and embrace such randomness as a common occurence.  I mean when one reaches a certain age, whatever that moment may be, why not accept it?  Indeed.

Nina Hollander  - gender aside, there are similarities that exist for men and for women as we age and experience life.

Sheila Anderson - Heck yes!

Wayne Martin - a whole lotta alternatives too.

Bill Liz and Bill Spear - 34 years is practically a nano-second in some ways.

Brian England - one day at a time.  That's a method that works.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - a certain age can occur any time and that's for certain I've been told.  

Jeff Dowler, CRS - I was aware of each show but not a viewer when they were initially released.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - what will be will be.  Indeed.

Roy Kelley - Mr. Romano's second sitcom is no longer being televised unlike "Everybody Loves Raymond" - living off reruns currently.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - they say that age is but a number.  Whoever they may be.

Will Hamm - the combination of writing, cast and timing may have something to do with the success.  

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - celebrating is a good thing.

Endre Barath, Jr. - there are many things I don't do today that I did in 1977/1978 - I guess I could start a list.  There are some things I can do better too.

Michael, I just got back from being with my family and age came up during my stay. We were all talking about how differently we think than we used too. Age seems to cause us all to evolve, hopefully, for the better. I ponder more as the years go by and am perfectly fine with that.

my son is in San Diego for a couple of weeks.

Amanda S. Davidson - hopefully we are all learning more and moving forward.  Onward too.

Sharon Tara - I hope both are enjoying their time in California.  I am glad to know you were thinking of me.  That makes me feel good.

Michael,

I remember in an interview with Sophia Loren when someone asked here about her age, and she said, "age is not a privilege!"  It is what happens to all of us.  I have always loved that...How you handle it is a whole other story.  A

Now, Michael, I would certainly see that you would listen to NPR, as that is my total GO TO for most things in the world (since I abhore the news, this is the only avenue for it to infiltrate my lovely and quiet world in the middle of nowhere). I love Terry Gross. I also totally embrace Ray Romano. Happened upon Everybody Loves Raymond much later than when it was popular the first time. My husband and I get alot of laughs and some moments of OMG, that's US...(we're not yellers, have kids or parents next door, but Ray's and Deborah's relationship is somewhat accurate). 

I actually thoroughly enjoyed his new stand up comedy act/documentary on Netflix. It went back to his roots, surprising the crowd at the old comedy place  where he started and they LOVED him.

Terry Gross is a master at interviewing people, don't you think? ...as for a man of a certain age, guessing that makes me a woman of a certain age?  What the heck, whatever age I'm at seems to be perfect for the moment. My mom is nearly 93 and handles it so gracefully,  she is good role model for aging.

Michael, think we all get to "that age" that we once thought was really old.  How are thoughts change!

Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate - I admit to listening to others beyond NPR but I agree they have a certain appeal(at least to me) in some matters.  

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I agree with you about Terry Gross - interviewing is not as easy as some make it appear and she masters the task.  It's good you have your own aging expert in-house.  How fortunate for you.

Michael Jacobs - This comment is totally unrelated but the title ties into what I'm about to say. Since I never heard anyone on ActiveRain wish you a Happy Birthday, I'm wishing you a Happy Birthday for a very nice man of a certain age.

Since you are of a "Certain Age," I wish you good health, happiness, good luck, many good friends, delicious meals, an abundance of things you need, quite happy days when you want it most, and great times with friends when the opportunities arise.
