Frank and Ernest by Thaves for April 05, 2015
Museum of Aging: Sir Francis Bacon "I will never be an old man. To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am." Frank: I sure agree with that! I keep pushing the official start of old age off into the future. Ernest: Yeah, I came out of my midlife crisis and ran smack into my second childhood! H.L. Mencken "The older I grow, the more I distrust the familiar doctrine that age brings wisdom." Frank: I have to admit, I'm not getting any wiser with age. In fact, I just wish I knew now what I THOUGHT I knew 30 years ago! Ernest: I think I've become a little bit wiser --- if I could live my life over knowing what I know now, I'd still make the same mistakes. But I would start a lot sooner!
