You have undertaken quite a burden for such an old fart. Being the arbiter of who deserves what must be very taxing, on an old man.
And here I thought that it was God's job to judge.
My choosing? So I choose what thoughts you will turn into words?
I didn't realize I was so powerful.
Thanks for that.

Yes Tally, I asked for you to ignore questions and rather attack with childish insults.

So, Tally, who asked you to profess a love of God, while attempting to belittle those who don't think like you do or those who would disagree with you?

Tally, when you blame others for your choices, it makes it that much easier for others to manipulate you. You give the power to others.

A bit of advice. Not that you would ever listen;
Lighten up and enjoy life. Take back the power to control your own feelings and actions.
It will become easier when you start acting and conversing as an adult, leave the childish insults to the uneducated children.

BTW, thank you for joining those that offer up the free rent. I need no other IDs to take your childish blather. But I do enjoy the laughter you afford me, and of course the free rent. Thanks for playing your part so well.

You are a good sport. In spite of yourself.

A good sign of getting old are the cars models you owned from age 18 until you are 35 years old all have Historic license plates on them.

I just landed a cushy retirement job -- printing the internet. I can set my own hours, work from exotic locations, and unless the printer jams, I pretty much have all the free time I could want.

The downside is I have to supply the paper and ink.

Oooo...kay.

I'll just chalk a discussion about retirement into the same category as tipping, circumcision, abortion, spanking (children or pets), guns, KKK West*, etc

Lesson learned.

You do slow down after retirement....just like Topix.

I normally can get a good game of Free Cell in waiting for the Topix screen to generate.

For exercise I quickly manipulate my mouse to remove those appearing pop-ups. They multiply like rabbits!

I have a few questions! I'm not retired yet and have many years before I get to, if ever. My question is why are they called Golden years? What are the other years called? Just wondering.....

Because after the next 10-20 years they call it "The Brown Years."

Depends!

Golden years - Sally you defined it by asking the question. It seems younger people under the age of 65 find retirement something to look forward too; 'therefore golden years'.
It's not exactly all it's 'cracked-up-to-be'!

An old man talking to his penis:
"Hey old friend." "We chased women together!" "We played together!" "We worked out together!" "You wrote my name in the snow while I watched!"

"Why did you have to die before me!?"

Ha Ha HH! If anything I over abused my friend.

Weekends used to be fun! Time cooking out with the family, sports, alcohol, and relaxation.
Now weekends suck because the neighbor kids are home from school yelling and screaming in my back yard. The leave their candy wrappers, water and soda bottles and cans on my lawn. Their basketballs, footballs, and baseballs are stored only in my lawn. They turn my lawn into mud and trample my trees and bushes. Nothing like using my vinyl siding as a backstop.

Yes, I am a Grumpy Old Man!
