If I could change anything at all it would be this - to be as quick as today's young (18 – 38.) It disgusts me to come waddling in like a crippled duck, when at long last I finally do have a smart idea that someone else uses because she or he snaps it away from me, just before I am going to use it.
Case 1 – I asked one of my brothers for a very nice picture which I planned to use with a story. He obliged with a great photograph on Facebook doing perfect justice to the subject, when Friends and Public swarmed in with their oohs and aah's, taking the thunder away from me. I was too late, or They were faster.
Case 2 – my Daughter showed me a video of two of My grandchildren performing an Act so cute, I was sure to have a hit this time; I was so proud of them. And of Myself, for being the Provider of an eight of their genes, but – again, I was too late. All the laud and glory, all the 'Cuute's!!' passed me by again.
It was then that a plan to outsmart all the lightning fast Likes and Comments robbing me from deserved glory formed into my head – the only way to be the first one in my own story was, (and is,) to work in dead secret, in utter darkness. So watch. In cooperation with my esteemed, and lovely, Computer Wizard Megan, who herself is also a fourth of My genes, We will patiently wait till the very last moment to Summit Story and Picture – Ping! And then sit down awaiting the rewards of the fruit of our labors - Like likes.
For those interested, I am declared as healthy as one can be at my age by my Esteemed Doctor and therefore roaring to go, still minding the disadvantages of old-age. This is a true statement and is witnessed as such by my Daughter Janice, who was present at the interview and for the most part of the examination.
