indestructible youth?

smoking

Beautiful!

Perfect health!

Danger creeps insidiously.

Mesmerizing ashes grow longer.

Death!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    A long time ago when I was young and thought that someone of (eg 70s and 80s were nearly dead) For a period I smoked. I’m so grateful now it was not very much BUT ……..I stopped when I KNEW ABSOLUTELY that I was damaging my lungs. 50 years later an x ray of my chest confirmed only last week they could tell that once upon a time……in a different space and life…I smoked. The doctor said…….you stopped you lived ffifty more years yet, still very, very, tiny evidence of damage. ‘ Makes you think that for YOU what could have been if you had continued. ‘ Food for thought indeed. Thank you for the blog!

      I’m glad you used wisdom in dropping that habit. You are here and I enjoy knowing you. How much would have been lost if you had suffered a short life because of smoking. 😀
