    "Back when we made the chart, the kids were small — only two or three of them had reached their teens, and I was still fairly close to my prime. It seemed impossible that they would ever beat me in any of the contests."

    What a childish act of vanity! And I seriously doubt that "we" made the chart because my spouse would have no part of such a thing.

    Of course it's getting older.

    The price of everything has skyrocketed and wages have declined.

    You can no longer raise a family of 5 at age 25 off the job you received out of high school.

    Many LDS are graduating from universities with 4 year degrees and still cannot find jobs.

    If anything, we need a Perpetual Education Fund for local LDS.

    I guess it's a new adventure, uncharted, no one has lived to say, been there done that.

    When our kids wear tinny learning how to handle pressure of taking care of a family was gradual. one little person at a time. As they got older and taller, the little people added more of a lode to the engine. The amount of energy consumed was at full throttle as the kids became grown ups. Than the grown people started leaving one by one and the lode and pressure was gone. Albert Einstein has a quotable quot; You live your life for life to have a life to live for. I think I don't know how to live life any more with out pressure. I think Ive had my shoulder to the wheel than it took off and I've lost my balance.
