Funny how adding years to your life can also add perspective to your years

The child of a biker says at…

  • 4 years : My daddy can fix any bike.
  • 8 years : My father doesn’t know quite everything about bikes.
  • 14 years : Father? Hopelessly old-fashioned rider.
  • 21 years : Oh, that rider is out-of-date. What did you expect?
  • 25 years : He knows a little bit about bikes, but not much.
  • 30 years : Maybe we ought to find out what Dad thinks about my bike.
  • 35 years : A little patience. Let’s get Dad’s assessment before we fix anything.
  • 50 years : I wonder what Dad would have thought about that bike.
  • 60 years : My dad knew absolutely everything about bikes!
  • 65 years : I’d give anything if Dad were here so I could ride with him again.
