The Slide of Life

I got to thinking today that life is like a big slide, a great big slide that you slide down.
It's a huge slide that is so big that it takes years to slide to the bottom, but at the bottom are spikes, and when you hit the spikes you die.
You can't get away from it, you can't get off the slide and you will hit the spikes and die.
Enjoy the ride I suppose.

When I turned 43 last summer Arthur kindly told me I was now sliding down the razor blade of life. OUCH!

And try to avoid splinters on the way down.
