Old People (Revised)

You better get ready for us old people becase we are here.

I neve dreamed about being an older person but I am here!

Older people will annoy you but we have so much experience to share with the younger generation if we can just communicate!

I miss dad and grandpa somedays, they taught me so much about farming about life. I guess I tried to mimic them.

I am a third generation former school board president! Our family always gave to the community and school boarding, well now that is one tough job but I did it!

The day I retired from school boarding they hired my friend and son in law to be the ag teacher where I started in 1971! That was so special!

I can see this young generation needs our experience, knowledge and wisdom. How do we communicate? I am trying to help train a great young farmer right now and I know I upset him somedays by telling him the truth. Everything is not all glory like they show on TV!

You young folks better treat this older generation good.

We own everything!
