Ramblings of a Retired Mind

I 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 also made a cover for my hearing aid and now I have 
what they call blue teeth, I think.

You know, I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized 
that people didn't like me anyway.

I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing 
husbands on beer cans!

I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is
'when you still have something on the ball, but you are 
just too tired to bounce it.'

I thought about making a fitness movie for folks my age, 
and call it 'Pumping Rust'.

I've gotten that dreaded furniture disease. That's when 
your chest is falling into your drawers!

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'!

I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible 
a whole lot more as they get older.  Then, it dawned on me.  
They were cramming for their finals.

As for me, I'm just hoping God grades on the curve.

All this and your souped-up car. You are some kind of cool!

Thanks Odie. I love the idea of writing in A good doctor.
