Interesting stories about older animals. I like looking at it that way. If only our society would recognize the value that experience and wisdom bring.

I know what you mean about being dismissed as you age, as if you had never been young, and the people dismissing you will never be old. Our youth focused society is so shortsighted, aren't we?

It's like dealing with teenagers as an adult. They think that their parents could never understand them, and so have no wisdom worth considering. What they don't realize is that their parents were once teenagers (albeit in a different era), while they have never yet been middle aged. So, the parents *do* tend to have relevant experience, but the teenagers have no way to know that.

Maybe things will improve, in the sense of valuing experience more, as the baby boomers age, because there will be so dang many of them. I'm one year short of being one myself, so I can say *them* ;).
