Grumpy gus“I’ve been thinking.”


“We need to do a better job of general and scheduled maintenance.”

“You’re right.”

“If we don’t do it, who will?”

“No one.”

“I try to keep up with things . . .”

“I hear ya.”

grumpy_thinking“But the older we get . . . the more time it takes . . . and the less return we get on our investment.”

“Exactly.  I’ve noticed that too.  We do more and get less.”

“And . . . we’re experiencing a continuous free-fall of resale value.”

“If we could find a willing buyer, that is.”

“Fat chance.”

“Well, it IS what it IS.”

“Yup.  To paraphrase Teddy, we must . . . do what we can with what we have where we are.”

“True dat!  How we relate to the issue IS the issue.”

Exercise-Sunset“BINGO! ~ So, let’s strap on our dancing shoes and go for a walk on the beach!”

“And when we get back I’ll make us a healthy salad for lunch ~ full of fresh and crunchy anti-oxidants and fiber.”

“Then we’ll meditate on the mantra, We’re not getting older, we’re getting better.”

“”Here’s to living in the eternal NOW . . . ”

“While ignoring the diminishing marginal utility of our aging bodies.”

Wine improves with age. 
Age improves with wine. 
Life improves with laughter.

Aah . . . that’s better!
