On Cos’ Little Old ManPosted: September 12, 2011
This morning, I saw a kindly, white-haired ‘little old man’ at the supermarket. He was cheerfully going about his business. For whatever reason, Bill Cosby’s recording of years ago, “Little Old Man” popped into my head. It struck me that in the many years since recording the bit, Cos’ has kind of BECOME the ‘little old man!’ Further, it occurred to me that I’m not really all that far down the road behind him…and neither are some who will read this.
Here’s a thought…give a metaphorical tip of the hat next time you see a cheerful little old man or little old lady. Heck, if you actually wear a hat, and are so inclined, give ’em a REAL tip of the hat! Whatever you do in life, someone that’s a little old man or little old lady now blazed the trail for you!
