Much Too Young...

So another year gone off the lifespan, and as I'm wont to do on this yearly mile marker day, I sit here looking back. Loads of memories, a healthy mix of good and bad mark the trail. And while I'll put this last year in the latter bucket, it's time to cowboy up and drive on. All anyone's got is the here and now anyway, so I reckon mulling on the back or forward of it makes no difference. Would've preferred a less rocky trail, but the footing's solid if unspectacular, and it'll take me where I need to get to, if not where I want to be. That's another trail, but for now I'll head into the wind and hope next year's mile marker is on higher ground...

This ol' highway's getting longer
Seems there ain't no end in sight
To sleep would be best, but I just can't afford to rest
I've got to ride in Denver tomorrow night

And the white line's getting longer and the saddle's getting cold
I'm much too young to feel this damn old
All my cards are on the table with no ace left in the hole
I'm much too young to feel this damn old

Lord, I'm much too young to feel this damn old

Yeah Eaglewing that's what I've been thinking too. But in my case it may pay to re-evaluate, or to re-calculate my age. Love that song. I know Rodeo cowboys put more miles on everything than most of us do. Have a great week - Thanks for stopping by. Pappy
