Ain't that the truth, Paul. Recently met with an old friend from college... we met three weeks into our first semester in 1966. But I refuse to think of either of us as antiques!

Hello Paul - although I have known they are not the same person, anytime I see this author's name you attribute a quote, I think of the singer.  And now that earworm is inching into my mind remembering some songs.

Those are my favorite antiques as well, although I think I am becoming an antique myself, haha.

Hi P aul,
The definition of antique varies by subject. A car is considered antique after 25 years. A piece of furniture is more like 100 years. I'm somewhere in-between.  😂

Geez Paul,  you slapped me upside the head this morning with this one.  Not so much the dear ole friend as me being an 'antique' to some.  LMAO  Enjoy the weekend.  Be safe.  mdm

Hi Paul,

This is so true.  It also makes me laugh because I do have quite a few "antiques."

HI Paul- I couldn't agree more, and like antiques, they should be treasured and cared for.

Just yesterday, I was talking to a neighbor about an "old" 80 year old guy who had called to talk about Sacramento history.  Then I realized next year, I'll be 80.
