Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS please don't go there, Paul! A colleague of mine just celebrated her 50th birthday (wish I could remember 50) and said something about being a half century old. It got me thinking that I'm almost three quarters of a century old!

Time keeps moving no matter what we are doing so perhaps we should make the most out of the time that we have, haha.

Ah, the evils of procrastination!  It took me half my lifetime to put dreaded tasks at the top of my list, instead of at the bottom.
