Rick and I have a friend who is planning his retirement. Every day, he advises us as to how many more days (and sometimes hours) before he will be an at-home happy man.
This started about a year and a half ago, and he’s still got a couple of more years to wait. But, boy, will he have the heck planned out of it!
Once he does retire, we expect him to seek lots of activity to replace the former work hours. I’m pretty certain he won’t be ready for the reality of retirement, though. After watching other friends in their baby steps into retirement, I see them getting more and more bored without a mission to guide them. One friend actually hangs around the golf course to give advice to newbies, just to have something to do!
This new retirement should be good entertainment to watch! Here’s something right down that avenue:
a Retired Mind
Was thinking about how a status symbol of today is those cell phones that everyone has clipped onto their belt or purse. I can't afford one. So, I'm wearing my garage door opener.
I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing husbands on beer cans!
I thought about making a fitness movie for folks my age, and call it 'Pumping Rust.'
When people see a cat's litter box, they always say, 'Oh, have you got a cat?' Just once I want to say, 'No, it's for company!'
Employment application blanks always ask who is to be notified in case of an emergency. I think you should write, 'A Good Doctor'!
Birds of a feather flock together . . . and then poop on your car.
A penny saved is a government oversight.
The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.
The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.
He who hesitates is probably right.
Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL.
If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.
The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.
Did you ever notice: When you put the two words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs...'
Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.
When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Algebra.
One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
