Rush Limbaugh - #4028 - Recalling an Old Conversation with a Fellow Baby Boomer

GREAT STORY ON RUSH TODAY - Why he feels men from his father's generation acted and felt much older than his generation, differences in life altering experiences at much earlier ages, please read, great insight.

RUSH: I want to tell this story again. If you've been with me for a long time, you've heard it and I beg your indulgence. Understand we have gazillions of new audience members who may not have heard this. I was having a conversation 15 years ago with a broadcast engineer friend of mine at WABC in New York, Frank D'Elia. We're the same age, 61. We were sitting around discussing why we didn't feel our age. We were 50 at the time this was happening. Why we didn't feel our age. I've always said that I love getting older. I look back at when I was a kid. The old people were the ones having fun. They're the ones that were in control of their lives. They're the ones that had power over themselves. They're the ones who had self-determination. They're the ones who had freedom. They were self-reliant. It's what I wanted for me. And I figured I had to get older for that to happen. And every year I got older, of course, my life did improve. Still is the case. We were talking, why don't we feel 50? When my father was 40, he looked it, he lived it. When he was 40, that was it. Frank and I began to throw theories around back and forth as to why we still felt 20, in terms of how much life was still ahead of us. When my dad was 40, his life was, you know, whatever he was at 40 was what he was gonna be the rest of his life. This is not a criticism. It's just the way it was. He was not unhappy about it in the slightest. It's just the way it was.  Read entire story.........
