Getting Old.

Posted October 8th, 2011 by admin

I am 34 years old now, 9 years from the age my mother died and 18 years from the age that my father died. Of course, I’m cognisant that getting old is far preferable to the alternative that my parents didn’t get to experience. And really, in this modern time, 34 is still young, 40 [...]
