Re: funerals
I wonder how perfect I'll be at my funeral.

I'm sure you will be the center of attention and not offend any one.

So, if I avoid becoming perfect, I'll live forever?

Because his name is ringo?

Ok, I'm in one of those moods. I'll see myself out.

I was thinking that lack of perfection is an achievable goal.

I am living proof that it is.

Be careful what you wish for. To live forever in the perfect mess we've made would be ...

One of the young guys
This must be one of the only groups I am part of(online and real-life) in which I am one of the young guys. I turn 60 in July.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

The important thing is not how long you live, but how well! You young pup!!

Re: One of the young guys
So about a week ago I went over to the local Trap & Skeet club to try shooting clay pigeons for the first time. It was also the first time I've fired one of my shotguns in over 40 years. The shotgun I took is one made by Aramberri in Spain's Eibar region. Eibar has long been known for it's numerous relatively small size firms that made firearms.

I bought the shotgun in 1972 IIRC and back then it cost a whopping $150.00. That was a chunk of change at the time. What was interesting was how many folk saw it as an antique, and quite a few had not been born the last time I shot the sucker.

Anyway, the day was a success and the gun was as pleasant as I remembered and as few clay pigeons were harmed as ducks back 40+ years ago.

Next time I get to go over (the next few weekends they are having 4H tournaments) I take my hand-me-down Winchester Model 12 pump that was made in 1926 or my Remington Model 48 Sportsman semi-automatic that was made in 1949.

And I'll also bring my folding camp stool so I can sit when I am not the one shooting. Being old is a bitch as my back, hips and knees constantly remind me.
