An old fashioned song, on his 100th

“The old folks don’t talk much They talk so slowly when they do They are rich they are poor Their illusions are gone They share one heart for two ‘The old folks don’t talk much’? John Denver did not get it right. Or maybe that’s because he never met my grandfather. Old folks can talk a lot, I tell you. Mostly, about things and incidents from the longest time away, as if memory starts ageing most recent times backwards and what remains freshest in their mind’s eyes those choicest of images from much younger days, cherry-picked – to be mulled over in free time, for free time they usually have, or to be shared. With grandchildren, first and foremost. What a fortunate relationship!”
