Never too late
plane, old tools, woodwork, galoot
Saturday afternoon (when it was not raining) I was doing some woodwork outside our tent at colgaffneyis muster. One of our newer members came by to look at what I was doing and chat. He is an older fellow (mid-late 40's I would guess). He saw what I was doing and said he wished he could actually do stuff like that. I told him that I will turn 58 next month and I have only gotten serious about this in the last 10 years.

I hope he got the message.

I wish I could ...

A few years ago, I had a mother-daughter combo in my Lifespan Human Development class. It turns out that the mom was about 46 as her daughter was getting ready to start college. They were talking about it, and the mom said, "I wish I had gone to college, but it's too late - in four years I'll be 50!" The daughter - no dummy - said, "Mom, in 4 years you'll be 50 no matter what. The question is, do you want to have a college degree when you're 50?" She did.
