Never to Old to Rock and Roll

I came across a news article about two elderly German men that escaped from a nursing home in order to attend a heavy metal concert.

When the nursing home realized the gentlemen were missing, they called the police.  The police located both men at the concert at 3:00 in the morning and drove them back to the facility in a police car.

My first reaction – I want to be like those guys when I am old.

I want to still have the desire to escape in the night, to attend concerts, to feel wild, to bend rules, to express my individuality, to cause trouble, and to make people shake their heads in wonder.

Prom Night – Not Right

It’s senior prom night, and I just dropped off Gwen.  This can’t be right.  It seems like only a couple of years ago, I was a high school senior.  I was the one running off to school events.

In reality, it’s been a couple of decades.  Where did all those years go, and how could they have disappeared in the blink of an eye?

I also wonder what is my mom thinking tonight?  Her daughter just drove her granddaughter to the senior prom.  That’s got to feel weird.
