The days of skip, hop, jump and run Slipped away from me like a breeze I skipped skippin', (It was for girls) Who knew boxers did it? (Not me) I'd hop rocks and jump the big ditch Run around like I was deranged With school, those girls and bad habits My hoppin' and jumpin' had changed! I can still run but not too far I'm embarrassed to say how slow It's so hard to get back in shape 'Til it happens, you just don't know!

Nice one once again Pat … when we get older have you noticed the distance between point A and point B appears to have grown - thank you Pat - Lindsay

Safer that way, I would say! The only time I run is when pixie drags me around the yard. Not for long though!!...80)
