For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Subject: Retired People



Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.

Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and went into a shop.
I was in there about 5 minutes and when I came out there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

I went up to him and said, "Come on Man, how about giving a retired person a break?"

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.

I called him a "Nazi."

He glared at me and started writing another ticket for worn tires.

So I called him a "doughnut eating Gestapo." He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first, then started writing a third ticket.

This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, I didn't care.

I came downtown on the bus and the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said "Hillary in '08."

I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired.

It's important to my health.

Smile - God loves you !!
