Thank God It’s Friday! It is Friday, right??

Three old men were sitting in a park, talking. One said, “I’m thirsty”. Another one said, “You idiot, It’s Friday”! The last one said, “I could go for some fried eggs”.

Since I don’t have the compass of a work week anymore, I find it difficult to remember which day of the week it is. My wife is consistently correcting me and calls me an old man, which I guess is true. It all depends on who you talk to.

If I tell someone in their eighties that I’m 60, they call me a baby and I suddenly feel young again. Then I realize that I’m a grandfather to seven adorable grandkids and I feel old again.

As soon as I finish this blog I’m going to have breakfast and take a nap. I loved naps now. I never used to. There were always things that need to be finished so there was no time for napping. Get busy and stay busy, man. Otherwise, you’re lazy. Those words from my father still echo in my brain.

I don’t pay much attention to his message anymore. If I need a nap, I take one. So far, my hearing and vision are fine. I’ll get back to you in a decade and let you know if that’s still true. So far, so good. I do forget things rather easily these days and I’m sure many of you can relate. I do forget things rather easily… See??

I’m OK with getting older. I could do without the seizures that I have, but life is good. I feel very blessed. It could be much worse. So many have problems much greater than mine. I feel bad for them. You know, people like Tom Brady fans, knowing that he’ll miss the first four games of the season.

I’m so glad it’s football season again. Or is it??

  1. I salute your retirement plan.
    I used to have this problem with memory, got sorted it out, but forgot how.
    Luckily in Britain all a man needs to do is put on an upper class accent and an embarrassing social encumbrance becomes an adorable eccentricity.
