Family Wisdom

Gigi’s uncle called a few weeks ago and I took away a brilliant nugget from that conversation.

He said, “Reggie, life is like a video tape. When you push the rewind button it starts out very slow, then towards the end it’s zipping along so fast that you can’t observe it.”

Good point I thought. Life does seem to pass so quickly the older I get. As a kid summer and winter vacations, heck even the weekends lasted for eternity.

Thanks uncle Wendell. Now we need to come up with an analogy that the next generation will understand since video tapes are ancient history.

That is very true, but wouldn't life be like a fast forward button? I have noticed it does the same thing.

When you start scrolling through all the songs on your iPod you just keep going faster and faster until you skipped past the best ones!

Or something like that.

I was working on my Jeeps mirror in the bright sunlight and oh it was a sad sight. Wrinkles, spots and general crape paper looking skin around the eyes.
