Life Flies when you are Having Fun!
Ricardo....Maturing

by Ricardo

Never thought that I would reach this "plateau" in life. I always thought that "maturing" was something that happened to "old people", you know, parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents.


I knew how to be a kid....you just play, have fun, and listen to mom and dad, no worries, no heartaches, just fun....live for the moment! All of a sudden I find myself in college, first time away from home....a bit scared, but a whole new retrospect on life, and did I live it to the fullest! Once again the party continued. Not a care in the world, not even my grades! Well, the party ended when I lost my student deferment, and reality hit me right between the eyes, and so did Uncle Sam. He took a few years of my life, then marriage, a daughter, grandchildren, and here I am, I have come full circle......now I am "mature", and ready for the next step in my life.......R-E-T-I-R-E-M-E-N-T. Adieu!
Wendy" Yeah, time flies... especially as we age! I still can't believe I worked at one employer my whole life, and now retired. ME! Retired? Yep!

Maybe I'll wake up tonight and will be starting my career anew! grin! It was all a long dream.. like Sleeping Beauty!
