    Oh, what an adorable puppy! Wait… aren’t all puppies adorable? Yes!

    As for getting old, I can’t even remember much about when I was 30. My sons were 8 and 10 then… I remember them, honest… well, most of the time. 🙂 Pretty much everything else is a blur now, 40 years later.

    My first thoughts on Parkland….who is paying for this.

    I claim a Guinness record for having pushed adolescence beyond all previous limits.

    My wrinkles come from grinning, so I must have been doing something right.

    Getting old beats the alternative. Don’t quit early.

    Whippersnappers! Wait until they have to trust doctors who aren’t old enough to be their children.

    I know kids who can organize events, with adult help financing. But they’re in 4-H and FFA and such, and wouldn’t put up with foolish nonsense.

    At 30 I was finishing graduate school, having interrupted college for four years as an Infantry officer. I remember it well. Four-year-old daughter and one on the way.

    Oddly enough, we celebrated Christmas today. Food, tree, gifts, etc. My youngest sister-in-law works for the Navy as an electrician, and spent the last several months on a ship “I can’t tell you where in the Pacific.” We tend to do holidays until everyone gets a turn.

    What I admired about Dr. Bannister was that he was an athlete who made a mark, then went on with life, and did something else significant.

    why did it take two weeks for the media…
    Rhetorical question, right?

    I recommend the movie “Four Minutes” about Roger Bannister. It covers his medical school training and his mile training.
