remember as a youngster
when you couldn't wait to grow
so you'd measure up to your favorite wall
or refrigerator door

but soon the time would pass away
as we all know time will do
and we'd look at all the marks we left
in places as we grew

today our kids grow fast and tall
and soon they'll leave the nest
and among my favorite memories
are those on the old ice chest


One ladle serves the soup that feeds the mouths of the many.

Good memories here... I can remember when a simple chip off the old block was considered a treat once the new one was in place

You bet I was anxious to grow up. To finally shave and leave my face a bloody mess. Much like I have left my life. Eh, Boomer I think I have finally lived long enough to be considered "grown up." Loved this write!

Much truth in a good flow of words.

Touch, but don't look
