Please note that the videos embedded with the songs were posted by some great Parrotheads on YouTube and not my creation.

This song almost says it all in the title "Growing Older But Not Up" (1981) which is on the Coconut Telegraph CD. 

I know that I personally do not feel my age, especially since I've gotten a little fitter and Jimmy feels the same way as he's out playing baseball and breaks his leg realizing that perhaps his body has gotten a little older than he feels he is.

I know my comments are short on this one, but Jimmy delivers it best with the wonderful line "I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead".  Me too.

Happy Easter and see you as the challenge continues on Monday.
