It was suggested to me that I do an article about gettin' old. Well, my first thought was how flatterin' it is to know there was someone who liked my articles well enough to ask me to write about something specific.
My second thought was, "Old!? I don't know nothin' 'bout gettin' old! I can talk about milkin' cows, sloppin' hogs, shuckin' corn, haulin' hay, and a whole truck load of other chores done on a small farm, but writin' 'bout gettin' old ...., well, I ain't sure I'm old enough yet!"
