Thursday's Question



Another hot, sunny day here in Kansas? How are things where you live?

This week's question is guaranteed to make you think! I think!!


How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were? Is there a perfect age? What would yours be?

  1. 32 years old :) I really liked how I looked at 32 years old, what was happening in my life at the time, etc. I'd stay 32 if I could :)

    Muggy today here; monsoon time.

  2. I'm a year older than Miz Betty :) At 33 y/o I believed the world was my bed of roses. Right about now I feel 109, give or take. :)

    How about YOU?

    1. I would return to 1991. I was 40. My career was going strong. My kids were 18 and 20, almost raised. Richard and I had the whole world before us. Yep, 40 was good to me!!

  3. We are cool here, today the wind is cold and you have to have a sweater! My kind of weather.
    Oh I think I would like to be 45 again...the kids were on their own and I went back to school:)

    1. Those were good times, weren't they? I loved it when my kids were on their own!

  4. I'm south of Far Side of Fifty, so we had a cool day here, too. I don't know about a perfect age for me, but if I could adjust the clock a bit, I would be 45 again, like Far Side said. Angel would still be alive and . . . not sick with cancer.

  5. Perfect age? I don't know. I heard on the radio that everyone feels about 12 years younger than their physical age. (I think it was 12. Might have been 14.) I wonder if that's true.

  6. It's sun followed by rain followed by sun followed by rain......get the picture? Grass is growing like mad. Age? Maybe late 20s early 30s when the kids were young. That time flashed by too fast.

    1. I agree that time flashed by so fast. But I don't want to repeat it!! I do get the picture about your weather. Same way here this summer!

  8. Finally got some rain today wooohooo. My favorite decade was my 40's. I am jealous that my kids are enjoying them right now...not that my 50's were bad and I am looking forward to my 60's but thus far....give me the 10 years of perfection that were my 40's

  9. I loved my 40s. Not sure I would make the same choices in my life if I went back to my 20s and I wouldn't have missed out on my two kids so the choices would stay the same. The 40s were good.

  10. I think I would like to go back to 18 and do so many things differently! I was having a blast back then. I'd like to see what would've happened if I hadn't changed my major from journalism to advertising. I would've went to a different college in a different state and my career would've taken a whole different direction. I just wonder where I'd be now if I had done that...
    Even if I wouldn't change anything, I'd still like to be 18 again. My folks would be young again too...

    1. Oh no! 18 was when I started making so many mistakes. But if I went back and changed anything then I wouldn't have the kids I have. So I wouldn't want to do 18 over again!! I would like to have my mom back though and tell her how right she was with all the things she was telling me at the time.

  11. I was 24 until I turned 40, 😁 . In my mind I am turning 50, not 70 this year. I don't have an ideal age, but at least 30 when my first child was born. It finally rained today and now it is beautiful outside.

    1. I like that..."I was 24 until I turned 40" I think I was too. 70...I would not have suspected!

  12. When I was younger, I wanted to be age 10 again - that perfect time of being a true child with all of the advantages and none of the angst of those teenage years but now I think I am quite happy with my 40s having raised a family that are now independent means I now have time for me again which is all rather nice :) The only down side is that whilst our children grow older and give us back our "freedom" our own parents get older too and that brings its own problems for the future - maybe 10 was the best age after all??? Thanks for yet again another thought provoking question, Paula - I'm certainly happy to have you the age you are with the wisdom that you have collected over your years on the planet!

    1. I would never, ever want to go back to childhood again. The first time I was there it wasn't that great! Thank you for your kind words though. I don't know if I really have that much wisdom but it feels good to hear that you think I do.

  13. I never felt better or looked better than I did when I was 48/49. Inside, I still feel like that young 25/26 year old Barbara. This is a really good question!
