“I stay current. I read. I start conversations with people I don’t know. They may think I’m crazy, but it won’t be the first time, and I couldn’t care less. I’m old and I’m rich. The smart ones know they’re headed my way and try to pick up some good advice.
“And I never hesitate to give it to them: keep busy. Mix it up. Work out. Get a move on. Go to bed tired, not bored. You don’t want to outlive your usefulness. Time waits for no man. Tick tock, baby. Tick tock.”
- An OMG from Texas

That’s my philosophy too, except I don’t think of myself as old and rich, I think of myself as middle aged and comfortable.
Well put, Amy. Thanks. – BGT
See, I always say that truly rich are not on Forbes 400 and their names are not publicly known. They go quietly …… one would say like a silver cloud. You sure must be old because you understand “Tick tock” – mechanical, hand winding watches.
Thanks, OMGM, I’ll pass along your observations. – BGT
Simplicity is among the finer things of life as one gets older it tends to reveal itself and is a welcomed companion indeed.
Very true, K.Lee. Thank you for sharing. – BGT
