everybody's talking bout the good old days - TR

It used to happen with much more regularity.

Pack the truck, pick a spot on a map and head out. No matter the distance, the weather or the obligations we had to disregard.

But things inevitably change and life gets more complicated, as it does for most everyone I suppose. Careers, kids, home ownership, mortgage payments, tuition payments, declining health, ageing parents (or pets), social obligations, etc., pick a couple and the opportunity and/or inclination to go can dry up pretty quick.

And as the chances to venture out there dwindle, I imagine its natural to try and pack it all in, to try and squeeze the most out of every spare moment.

I implore us all to resist that urge.

Soak it all in instead.

Because these are the moments we'll be nostalgic about someday.

No, we are not what we once were and we will never be again.

But the good old days are happening right now, same as they've always been.

Message received. Although I’d like to savor each one of those pics on their own.

Fantastic! Looks like some of our old trips into Killarney. I love the zen of paddling.

I’m glad to see that Peetso made it thru another dark Canadian winter without committing suicide. See Peetso, it was all worth it. :cool

Well Played sir, thank you
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.

Money, Peetso, money. While I do agree that for others, there are these obligations, the insatiable 12 year old Saffa inside me still gets out a bunch. I just don't find the time to post shit up as frequently as I used to. :coffee

Who the fuck am I kidding...my job sucks nowadays because of added responsibilities, I moved back to the city from 4 years of Ranchlife and I met a nice woman. Gotdang, I need to fish...and post up some shit or GDIAFF.
This TR is the injection I needed :cool
