You’re Never Too Old
For the past few day I’ve been working with a ton of game-worn Habs and Canucks jerseys. Maybe about 25 or 30 of them. I’m helping prepare them for the upcoming fall auction at Classic Auctions by describing the condition of them, giving information about the players who wore them and their teams, and making sure I mention all the marks, team repairs, unrepaired holes, board paint etc., because jersey collectors like lots of game-wear.
I photo-match many of them, I mention letters of authenticity, I work hard, not just with jerseys but with some of the most unimaginable and amazing stuff, and I learn and feel more comfortable as the days and months go by. And Luci is rejoining me in a couple of weeks and she’s bringing Teesha, the world’s most loveable cat.
If you’re reasonably healthy, never feel you’re too old to do something new and different. I started a new job 3000 miles across the country, and I’m almost 63. Believe me, the older you get, the faster time goes. Time is flying by for me now, everyone my age says the same thing, and I need to have full days while I can.
I think if you do something out of the unusual, something that makes you proud, you’ll get your blood going. Your chest will swell. And you’ll find the fountain of youth.
