The oldest kid...
I'm going to spend the weekend at a youth symposium, in a lovely mountain town (Kimberley, BC). I was asked to go because I work with and mentor young people sometimes. Or put another way, "We want to have some old farts there too - as long as they don't tell young people what to do..."
My daughter and three of her friends are attending. They are going on a bus that is picking young people up town to town, and getting them hyped. I found an excuse to drive alone and enjoy the scenery, including the highest mountain pass in Canada . It won't be surprising if there is snow up that high - in fact, I'm bound to see some (Kootenay Pass live webcam, if you want to see if I'm telling the weather-truth).
Enjoy your weekend wherever you are. You're only as old as you feel...
"If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn't ask me, I'd still have to say it."
- George Burns
Have fun being an old fart at a young people's symposium.
Spending time with your daughter is a wonderful way to spend the weekend too.
Madcap - will say hello to Hans
Enjoy the weekend.
And being among young people will help keep you from becoming an "old fart."
Some days my body feels old, but in my head, I'm young.
I agree with beth, "being among young people will help keep you from becoming an "old fart."
Andrew - take good care and keep blogging on your trip.
Chewy - how did you get that name?
Scarlet - me too.
Lindsay - I did have a great weekend and you're right, it keeps one youthful. You might be interested to know that there were 10 young people from Mozambique at the event with us.
