Struggling Retiree ~OR~ Rule 5 Woodsterman Style


A pensioner’s life is not what I thought it to be,
..but I will not despair.

I too am affected by the economic crisis.

Proof....

I have to eat moldy cheese.
 …and dried meat
 I have to drink old wine
 …my car has not got a roof
 …and my bathtub is in the garden

But I will continue to struggle along and
now I must protect my nose from the sun.

With a bit of courage I will survive this crisis.

Thanks David !

  9. Madhat, A young wippersnapper like you should have the nose warmers lining up to service your nose. Young Grasshopper, nose covers is an art to be nurtured as life extends itself passed what even you and I could comprehend.

  14. And how does Mrs Odie protect her nose?

    As the punchline goes, 18 goes into 65 more times than 65 goes into 18.

    (I can't complain, that's how I met The Blonde)
