Age is just a number. Having an age means we are still alive.

Good morning Paul. Why as I get older does it matter less? Who knows, but not an issue as long as I wake up on the right side of the grass! Enjoy your day.

I love the photo of the path you have featured today!  The quote is definitely true, when I see an older person with a great mindset, they always seem much younger than they really are.

Couldn't agree more, Paul! That's why when I turned 70 I just told everyone I was celebrating the 30th anniversary of my 40th birthday... because I didn't feel a day older than 40! Now that I'm closer to 75 than to 70, I might need to make a little adjustment in that number... maybe the 30th anniversary of my 45th birthday.

Paul, it is mind over matter, and age shouldn't make a difference, unless your health is in question.

This one made me chuckle Paul! My Dad used to say something like this. At first I was so young I didn't get it but after a while somehow he got us all to figure it out.

Yes indeed Mark Twain was quite a wise man. Perhaps even under appreciated.

Hi Paul- this is a favorite quote of mine. We're as old as we tell ourselves we are, aren't we.

Ya gotta love Mark Twain's wry humor mixed with wisdom.   I hope you are having a good week.
