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!!! LOL
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 for me.
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!
