Pretty quiet here at casa Demeur last night. I never go out any more, too many amateur idiots on the road plus those days are long behind me now. Last year was soon to be forgotten and mediocre at best. I did make it one more revolution around the sun so that's a plus. Is it me or is there not much to look forward to as we get older? Yes there are the run of the mill birthdays and anniversaries that I pretty much don't celebrate any more either but for the most part the excitement is gone. No more counting down the days until some special day because most days are the same. Maybe you get to a point in life where you've seen it all, been there, done that and as BB King would say "the thrill is gone". You get to a point where you pretty much know how something is going to work out before it does because you've been down that road once before or at least witnessed it in the past. But how quickly people forget their history yet now with the internet it's neatly tucked away on some Youtube video somewhere. Makes you wonder what that will do to coming generations. They are lucky to have the attention span of a gnat these days, imagine how grandma will get along when she's forgotten her smart phone password or even where she put it. Don't they have an app for that? Forget "help I've fallen and I can't get up" it will be "help I've lost my phone and I can't remember anybody's name or address".
I guess I'm very old school when it comes to some of the little things. I never rely on electronic devices for everyday information. If it's something truly important I write it down with pen and paper. I can't tell you how many times the boss was at a total loss because the battery died in their phone. One boss couldn't tell time without his phone which made it interesting when he left it at home one day. I still wear an old Timex that keeps on ticking.
And speaking of time it's about the end of this ramble. Time to sit back and listen to the arteries harden and watch the rest of the body parts wearing out. Now what was I going to do?
