Transportation from another era:
Remember that old
statement, “Don’t judge someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes.”
By the time one can
actually walk in an old person’s shoes, they are there. LOL
The one true statement
about humans is that we are ALL individuals. The mold was broken when you were
born. So we are all different. What works for one may not work for another; I firmly believe that.
When I smoked and
someone told me it was going to kill me, I could point out men in their 90s who
smoked a pack a day. Salt will kill you?
My best friend ate salt by the hands full. He loved salt sandwiches,
believe it or not. I had never heard of that until I met him. When we drove
across the great Salt Flats in Utah, he stood on miles of salt, with hands full
of salt and said, “Finally enough!”
Sonny lived into his
80s, would he have lived longer w/o salt? Who knows? But I do know that some
folks who cut way down on salt and have died much earlier.
Now, the good news. Do
you believe tests that give your relative age? I never gave them much
thought nor credence. The other day the
VA asked me to take a test. That sucker was an hour long. When my answers were analyzed, the system
said I was equal to a 78 year old. I am 82, so that actually made me feel good.......,
HEY WAIT a minute, 78 is still OLD!!!
One of the questions asked how many hours
I spent in front of the TV. I do
not watch TV so I used the 4 hours I am in front of this monitor.
After the analysis was
done, I was given a chance to change some #s to see if it would make a
difference. So I said next year I will only spend 2 hours a day sitting. After
analyzing the latest info, I would still be equal to a 78 yr old, so I guess I
will continue ordering from Amazon/Ebay and Blogging next year. LOL
I do believe we should stretch and exercise daily. I also think it is good to cut down on fat. I am sure that quitting smoking was good
However I can remember
when a job would become stressful that cigarette sure calmed me down (remember that?). That is
how I justified smoking until I was 58, smoking was better than using a nerve
pill, wasn’t it? I still don't know!
I am pretty cheap. I
remember saying when smokes go to 30 cents a pack I was quitting, but I didn’t!
I did quit at 40 cents
So my friends, eat right (?), stretch, exercise
and think positive. I hope you live long and WELL!
PS: Victor said something like: By the time you walk
a mile in someone’s shoes they will know you stole ‘em, just a guess, LOL!
