Where did it go?

September 6, 2016

Completely lost track of time again and finally got a
little break. It started with running the wife to get her
fingerprints taken for a job, stopped and had a chat with
Dad, and got the lawn mowed. All before 9 am!

After lunch I took a few pictures and one that even makes
me smile. Out walking the alley with my camera I ran into
this little critter trying to act like he wasn’t there.


For some odd reason the little guy just cracked me up.
I went back out in the heat around 5 pm and noticed the
moon high in the afternoon sky. He looked a bit sad to
me but wasn’t talking. Maybe next time.


It must have something to do with getting older, but I
can’t remember being so busy yet getting so little done.
I guess it’s like Dad always says- it takes me all day
long to do what I used to do all day long. This is another
short post, but hang in there. Things should be back to
normal as it gets here in a day or two.

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday as I’ll be sawing logs
shortly. When we rise and shine tomorrow we’re one day
closer to the election.
Comments are always welcome.


Senior moments

October 26, 2013

We will forewarn you that although this
is about a very serious subject to some us
that we are not vetted professional journalists
and we used an unscientific manner to reach
our conclusions.

As far as we know there is no handbook on
aging. You know what we mean.

Something that informs us while we’re young,
strong, and reasonably good looking that at
some point things are going to start creaking,
squeaking, and leaking.


Seniors also have a sense of humor.

Our memory isn’t as sharp as it used to be.
And our memory isn’t as sharp as it used to

We only have to deal with 2 days a week.
Yup, 6 Saturdays and 1 Sunday.

If we don’t like our wrinkles we can eat
until they all fill in.

We can do absolutely nothing all week and
rest on Sunday.

Growing old isn’t for sissies. We don’t get
scared when our bodies start making the same
noises as our coffee makers.

We enjoy being called ‘Seniors’ because it
comes with a 10% discount.

Some of us have had bypass surgery, joints
replaced, fought cancer, gone half blind and
almost deaf, but we do have our religion. We
thank God we still have our driver’s license.

We can count all the pennies we saved over
the years because we have the time now.

If we’re blessed enough to live to be over
100 we don’t have peer pressure to deal with.

After being called crazy all our lives, we
can now demand to be called eccentric.

Sometimes senility sets in, but we see it as
a plus. We can hide the Easter eggs AND have
fun finding them.

Speaking of senility, we’ll end with the
Senility Prayer:

God grant me the senility to forget the people
I never liked anyway,
the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
and the eyesight to tell the difference.
