Ah, George -- I don't think being 16 is the best wish ... I would
much prefer to be 38, when my family was complete and the
future looked so secure -- or even 48, when I had so many things 
interesting me that I first established my eventual pattern of 
minimal sleep so I could get it all in -- or even 58, when the
computer world opened up to me with a life changing roar. 

I can well remember being 16. Typically, I was a rebellious
daughter who believed she could outsmart the world if she
remained on the alert at all times. Last week I turned 79,
and I have to admit that I am still rebellious,  but I now know 
that I can't get away with it. Jimmie and I approach our
60th wedding anniversary, and I realize that the ties that 
bind are stronger than the impulses towards self fulfillment.

So George, I do believe that your granddaughter is correct in 
asking for the car -- she has to stand up and sing her own
song in this world. Nobody says she ought to get it, of
