Why Be Old?

At the weekend we went to the 50th birthday party of one of our Group’s helpers. I’ve known him and most of his family since I was a kid and it doesn’t seem that’s he’s 50!

All the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts love him, what he doesn’t know about walking, climbing, caving etc isn’t worth knowing and give him an axe and a dead tree on a camp and he’s as happy as Larry (bit of a standing joke that!).

But that’s the thing, in his and our minds he’s much younger and doesn’t act ‘old’ (I know 50 isn’t old, but there’s a point here!). He goes out and enjoys life and passes his knowledge and skills on! And that’s got to be a reason to not be old!

Happy Birthday Don.
