    You know what they say? When you get old, you enter your second childhood. When you're little, and someone asks you; How old are you Sonny? Then you hold up five fingers and say this many! Well, when you get to be my age, and someone asks how old are you old timer? I have to hold up seventy seven fingers! That ain't the easiest thing in the world to do, but the worst part is when I get together with a group and:

    I just leave the captions up all the time. One day I was watching tv, and the volume was way down, and my wife said, if you'd turn it up a little you wouldn't need those stupid captions. I told her I was practicing my speed reading.

    Showing appendages to suggest how old you are really doesn’t have much value in old age.

    More and more conversations in my life go like this:

    “It sure is windy.”

    “I thought it was Thursday?”

    “So am I. Let’s go get a drink!”
