Now I am thinking of Dominique Strauss- Kahn and the chambermaid! His exit was certainly not graceful.
Great quotes, Patty! Have a nice day!

Another good one. I enjoyed the previous post and wonder why "the throw away society" thinks we old guys were the problem.
BTW Enjoyed Abe's blog today but could not comment. It was prefect wording for a perfect photo.
Peace

Those were fun to read Patty. I often wonder what retirement really means. I think you are retired...but I am sure you seldom have a day of lounging about. I always thought retirement would be doing what ever you felt like doing. Hm....

The Shakespeare quote is why I don't do Facebook to get in touch with those no longer in my life. There is probably good reason why they are not.

I'm going to have to show these to Gregg, as he has been talking more and more about retirement now that he is 64.

Sorry you don't see me much on Facebook Patty. I rarely get over there but on the rare occasion.

Thanks for stopping by my postcard request and offering to send one to my relative. It's very much appreciated by both of us. His geography project for the local kids at his library should be a great success. Thanks again and have a great weekend.

Dear Patty ~~ I liked your thought for the day and the retirement jokes etc/
Thank you for your commets on Peter'supdates about my health. I still can't believe that I went for a day procedure and didn't get home for 4 weeks and can't walk as well as I did. Have to use a walking frame for now, then a stick, and later I hope to walk alone again.
I hope your Becky is much better by now. Nice to see your son, his girlfriend who serves in IraQ and
your granddaughter, then a surprise visit from more family.
