Sitting here this morning, I pulled up this blog and found myself staring at the picture I posted yesterday. Aside from the fact that I like it so much, I started wondering about the people in the picture. Assuming that it was taken in the 50's, and let's just say that they look to be maybe in their 20's or 30's, that would make them in their 70's or 80's now. So conceivably still around. Anyway, if they were really spankos, do you think they're still at it? When do we get too old for this? And since it took me until my mid-forties to get brave enough to launch into it, does it mean I only have a few good years left to enjoy it? Talk about wasted time! I know everyone is different, but I sure hope I'm still able to live this lifestyle 30 years from now. Pity I don't have 20 years of it behind me already, but then it wouldn't be something new and exciting at this point in my life.
I also wondered about the fact that the picture itself has stayed around for so long. Do you think the people in it are aware of the fact that it is floating around in cyberspace? I see these vintage pictures on a lot of websites, so they seem to be a popular theme. Do they still have a dusty copy of it themselves in a shoebox in the closet? I wonder if they pull them out from time to time and wistfully think about the good old days. Or would they be horrified to know that people are looking at them again? I like to think that they would be flattered that people were still interested.
