Vintage models we are; some of us antiques
We move with caution, lest something goes awry
(Except those among us, the health fanatics)
For spare parts unavailable, or hard to come by!
Yes, old we are; we’re yesterday’s classics
But there’s much to share before we bid goodbye
Our vessels laden with memories, melodies with lyrics
Stories; wisdoms and truths no one can buy!
Believe me, dear friend, you are a treasure
Your value, dare I say, beyond all measure...

Dedicated to all my friends in the golden twilight of our years!

And so are you.
I got my car to a dealer for some minor work. "Ah, you own a classic!" were the first words I heard from him. I wonder if he meant me as a classic old fogey or my 2-seater rag top. I laughed.
Nice musing. Like. Thanks Brod.

That's what the mechanic also told me when I brought Sim's 17-year old rag top Benz, hahaha. But I really think he meant me. Thanks for liking Brod
