This is my favorite part:
Those whippersnappers make me sick with that egotistical world view. Iíd stomp my foot, but I might fall over and couldnít get up.

I didn't mean to, but I kept picturing Andy Rooney as I read this. This is very insightful. We should value the older generation...we will (By God's grace) be one of them on day. Good Job!

This message came home to me loud and clear when I was involved in a church where 90% of the members were 30 and under...their lack of respect for what we "old-timers" (just hitting 50!) knew was pitiable. And I thought the same thing: one day, this will be you. ( : (Faster than they think, too!)
I enjoyed the humor underlying your entry. It just curls my straight hair to hear or read that an elderly person, age 60... I just shuffle off to "not Buffalo" with you.

Loved the dry humor, especially this line: Iíd stomp my foot, but I might fall over and couldnít get up.
