It has been said that no one has been able to defeat “Father Time”, and far be it for anyone of us to debate that sentiment as “Father Time” is undefeated. No “L’s” on its record and a big fat zero in its loss column. And yes, it will continue stay that way, none of us will ever change that, as all human beings will succumb to time. Now even though you won’t win the battle you may have the chance to extend the game just a little while longer.
