As the years churn...

I tell you, time sneaks up on you. I had a lot of "uh oh" moments, the past few days, such as:

You realize that the folks you think of as "kids" are now in the mid-30's.
You realize that young adult you were talking to at a Civil War event is someone you remember grabbing your knees and falling in the campfire (not necessarily in that order) when they were about four years old.
You're at a friend's funeral (sigh), and you have trouble recognizing people who look vaguely familiar, then finally realize it's because it's 15 years later, and they've gotten a LOT older in the interim.
