keep hanging JFP, as long as we are here, you will never be lonely
and you have my phone number if you get lonely give me a call
if i can't take the call right then you will get a call back

the younger crew might not catch on right away but we/they will

eventually

But there is an alternative if life isn't short enough for you.

You are blessed to live when others die and no one is blessed for no reason. Like Rich said it is time to teach. When an old man dies it's like a library burnt down.

Now botha James what are you going to do, waste your blessing feeling sorry for yourself or fulfill your purpose by giving what you have (knowledge) to those who need it most (the younger crew)?

BTW I posted about the song before I saw this thread so there is no conscious connection:D
