Youth is the Prompt for Today

The elderly people at the Daily Post division of Word Press would like us to create works of art to symbolize what the word “Youth” means to you.

Learning by Making Mistakes

Made tons of errors in my younger days.  Still make mistakes even today, but I never make the ones twice!  Guess that is what they mean by the wisdom of the older generations.  Yeah, they made mistakes but hopefully learned from their follies!

I will read each and every one of the comments I receive!

What really tends to be annoying is all the fun I had making those mistakes back in my younger days.  Remember working all lot on the farm, but in my few hours off had a blast with my friends from town!  Would drag them with me to help out in chores occasionally, but they rarely could hold up against my work load for long.  Didn’t get my actual driver’s licence until I was over 16 years old, but drove on public roads after the age of 14.  Drove on farm property starting at the wise old age of 12 (was so short had to use blocks on the brake and gas pedals)!

What stupid things did you engage in while growing up?

There was the One Single Time

At the end of my Junior year of High school, when I drank a part of a can of beer at a senior’s graduation party.  Tasted nasty!  But unfortunately did not keep me from getting hooked on drinking harder liquors when I entered college.

Please Help Fight Hideous Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely.
