Hi gang,
  Here is a poem I was given last night at a meeting. I thought you might 
like it. It's called


                          "HOW OLD IS OLD?...

How old is old?  That is like asking how high is high.
Old is when you no longer  care what goes on around you.
Old is when you nothing to look  forward to.
Old is when you no longer interest people.
Old is when you no longer want to hear the happy laughter of children
and listen to their fairy tales.
Old is when everyone is wrong and you are right.

How old is old?  You can be old at 20 or 30 or 90.  It depends on your 
outlook on life.  Little children can be old  children who have been starved 
for love or food. A little child who is not wanted and who has never known a 
parent's love, can be very old.

Who is to say who is old?  It is not a question of white hair and 
slow-moving body.  It is not the added years; it is something inside of us.

How old is old?  That is a debatable subject which you will never be able to 
answer.

If you keep on dreaming and planning for Tomorrow and enjoying Today, you 
will never be old."


  There you have it. This was distributed at a meeting I was at last night. 
Any comments?
Bonnie
