"Grow old along with me the best is yet to be." -unknown

I just read this on a sundial at Camp Blanding WWII Museum. The sundial had the date 1939 engraved on it. http://heartsongsjt.com/SAM_1790.JPG

Interesting since we all grow old with time.

Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
