Theme Thursday Over the Hill

Being "over the hill" conjures up alot of jokes & cartoons and one liners.  I searched them out on the internet and came across this interview with George Carlin, shot a little over six months before he died.  It's about how not to become over the hill.

Has he really been gone that long already? Carlin's voice still echoes through our house daily as Mr. Conductor in the Thomas the Tank Engine stories my boys like.

Being prolific and productive, what a great way to keep busy, active and the intellect intact. I agree with HBO, we don't have the channel here but many of their programs. He certainly did make his 'mark' and yeh, he was too hip for the room.

He was just a VERY Smart man, not just a comedian. Dizz blond put it best when she classified him as a philosopher.

Your welcome about the comment:)

how I miss him-an amazing intellect that made us laugh-his facilty with words and their meaning was amazing--he was definitely 'too hip for the room'
