History's Folly

Charge it to stupidity
or perhaps life's futility
that little is being learned,
just more wrinkles earned!

    Kind Sir, I greatly enjoy your work and your comments. Allow me to respond to History's Folly with my folly below. Your insight is insightful. (Please be patient with an old man. I am at an age where taking myself seriously would be harmful to my heart.) God Bless, Jim Rudd EYESIGHT One goes through four stages of eyesight. Glasses, bifocals, trifocals, Then a mgnifying glass. There is a fifth stage however, That comes with age for some, Called insight

    I can out do Kristin at wrinkles any day, not to mention gray hairs, that no one ever sees thanks to Miss Clairol. Well, sometimes it does seem stupidity runs a muck. I am hoping it's not all futile. Trying to be more optimistic in the new year. Hi Fred. Miss you lately. Hope your new year will be wonderful. Love & hugs, Shar

    OK, Kristins comment was very funny! LOL Seriously, I love this one. Great one. Hope the botox helps, though, and doesn't hinder, because i have seen some doozies from that! Skinny dipping is fun, but only if the water isn't cold...esp for men. LOL Love ya Fred! Princess...
