Hi Paul- with luck, the perspective of age and wisdom brings a better understanding of what we’ve learned

I think Kathy Streib, at my age, my perspective has sharpened so I can see the wisdom in many things 🙂

We don't always understand! Sometimes I still scratch my head and say something like, "Now why in the world did they just do that?"

At least you are aware and ask an important question to try to understand Kat Palmiotti

Good morning Paul. This one has me wondering how much is learned in youth because so many adults never understand. Want examples, look at the politicians in Washington, DC! Enjoy your day.

Lucky I understood that I was young and dumb in many ways. I’m glad I can still remember things I didn’t understand Wayne Martin
