    I saw my old friend Linda just today
    She looked the same to me as yesterday…
    Her wrinkles gave her character,
    She still had lots to say,
    We talked about the dues we’d had to pay…
    She’s still the same, still growin’ everyday..

    Janis just figured that their life wouldn’t hit the ‘sitting around the table talking’ until much much later. She probably figured at this stage they’d be out travelling, doing exciting things, etc.

    My take is that when they were first married she pictured late forties – early fifties as “old”. Now theat she is at that stage in life it really doesn’t “feel old”.

    That’s my take too.

    I’m of the same opinion. Now at age 71, I still don’t feel old!

    …can’t be disappointed – still alive & kicking, and hopefully, for another 40 or more years!

    That’s lovely!

    Did you write it (translation: do I need to google it to find the auther)?

    Is that supposed to be Janis in 40 years? Will she finally be wearing something different? Arlo is still wearing the same shirt.

    I was born in 1950. In my youth I really believed that I’d be too old to celebrate when we reached the millennium. When it arrived I found I’d been right all along.

    Ouch! I will never be able to get that image of Janis out of my head. Let’s hope JJ ages her VERY slowly and gracefully.

    I agree with gdogg. "Old is always 10 years out.
