    So why the hell wasn't this posted also to ARBR? Everyone should know by now
    that that is where I am mainly at.

    Bill should act his age and not pretend to be young when he clearly isn't.
    That is the shortest route to an early death that I know of. Bill already
    has one foot in the grave and a slight nudge will send him all the way there
    to his eternal perdition.

    At 57 Bill has only a few more years to live at best. But hey, just keep on
    running and cycling and maybe Old Man Death won't be able to catch you! But
    I surely wouldn't count on that. Somehow, Old Man Death has never yet
    overlooked a single person who has ever lived.

    I grow old . I grow old .
    I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

    PS. A post from the Great Ed Dolan is never silly, but is of the greatest
    profundity. Look on my posts and despair - all you midgets and dwarfs of RBM
    and ARBR!

    Ed, I could be 90 and still be younger than you physically and mentally.

    Only 50 or 60 more.

    But hey, just keep on

    I feel sorry for one with such an old man mind set.

    Bill, you are going to be dead and gone before you know it. Shortly
    thereafter, it will be as though you had never existed. Dust to dust you
    know. Hells Bells, after a few years no one will even visit your graveside.

    Hey, Bill, just over your shoulder there! Don't you see Him? That is the
    Grim Reaper and He is coming for you! Run, run as fast as you can but I
    don't think you will be able to out run the Grim Reaper. Many have tried but
    none have ever succeeded.

    Once I wasn't, Then I was, Now I ain't again.
