I went through alot of typing and it disappeared somewhere into the preview response - but I'll re-type



"HOW TO KNOW WHEN YOU'RE GROWING OLDER"


Everything hurts and what doesn't hurt, doesn't work;

The gleam in your eyes is from the sun hitting your bifocalsl;

You feel like the night before, you haven't been anywhere;

The little black book contains only names ending in M.D.;

You get winded playing chess;

Your children begin to look middle aged;

You finally reach the top of the ladder, and find it leaning against the wrong wall;

You decide to procrastinate but then never get around to it;

Your mind makes contracts your body can't meet;

You know all the answers, but nobody asks you the question;

You look forward to a dull evening;

You walk with your head held high trying to get used to your bifocals;

Your favorite part of the newspaper is "25 years ago today...";

You turn out the light for econonic rather than romantic reasons;

Your knees buckle and your belt won't;

You regret all those mistakes resisting temptation;

You stop looking forward to your next birthday;

After painting the town red, you have to take a long rest before applying a second coat;

Dialing long distance wears you out;

The best part of your day is over when your alarm clock goes off;

Your back goes out more than you do;

A fortune teller offers to read your face;

Your pacemake makes the garage door go up when a pretty girl goes by;

The little grey-haired lady you help across the street is your wife;

You get exercise acting as a pallbearer for your friends who exercise;

You sink your teeth into a steak and they stay there!



Hey - I guess I really don't feel that old yet.

Best Wishes folks.

Good morning folks.
Thanks for that Seriously.
I can relate to some of those points.lol
I know what you mean by spending a lot of time typing only to have it disappear.
Very frustrating isn't it?
Get ready for another weather event of some sort. It could get slippery.

I didn't mean to put an extra l in bifocals; and pacemaker, well I forgot the r. Like I said, I had all this typed in first thing, then I previewed and lost the whole lot.

Stll Morning Folks (just)..

A tad slow this AM, had to clear the snow at the back door, must have drifted a bit, but not enough to get the tractor out, so got some exercise and did it by hand, and now pooped..

Yes, Irish, amazing how 4 of us can mess the house up so quick, just me and the missus and 2 pooches, one of whom has a fur problem, she sheds all the time except for two, two weeks periods every year..

Well we got a couple of inches of the white stuff, plus a little more of a breeze, and it's a solid leaden looking sky, maybe full of more of that white stuff.

I know a lot of people are complaining about the road clearing and salting company, but the part of the hyway that I drive to town is always in pretty fair condition, it is very hard to judge when to start plowing as one piece may have nothing and another a couple of miles away may be being dumped on big time. This also used to happen when we had local contractors doing it too, the start of their area was dumped on and the other end was clear and people used to moan about them to the MTO, why are they out plowing there was no snow... Sometimes you cannot win for losing...

Anyways you all have a great day and drive safe..... and it has just started to snow again out here..

Mallet, you should be as cozy as a bug in a rug.
Plenty of groceries in and all set for a week or two.
That's a great feeling for this time of year.
What more could a retired couple ask for?
You have the best of both worlds where you are.
Like you, I love the feeling of being self sufficient.
Making do with the simple things in life.
Crazy or not I love this kind of life.

Dutch Touch..

Yep, the fire is blazing in the woodstove and the only power we are using is the power for the TV the missus is watching and the computer I am using. Could generate a few watts with the wind, but not too much from a solar system, pretty dull, thinking more of a "brown out" with that. Only trip I have to make this week is to the store, to collect the mail at the boxes, they don't deliver out here, Oh how shall I survive!! Oh dear, Chores, take out the garbage and bring in the wood, such a hard life I live!!!
