Weather: 80’s today.
Looks like we have a little rain in the forecast this week. Actually we need rain, Mi-Trale had a ride this past weekend, I couldn’t imagine what it was like being in a line of ATV’s going down a dusty trail. Them people had to be shitting dirt the next morning.
Brother Mark was at Mom’s again over the weekend and we got a place all cleaned out for the new dock, hopefully it is ready this week.
Yesterday my daughter again asked whyI didn’t do something useful with my time.
Talking about my “doing something useful” seemedto be her favorite topic of conversation.
She was “only thinking of me” andsuggested I go down to the senior center
and hang out with the guys.
I did this and when I got home last night I decided to teach her a lesson
about staying out of my business.
I told her that I had joined a parachute club.
She said, “Are you nuts? You’re almost 72 years old andyou’re going to start jumping out of airplanes?”
I proudly showed her that I even got a membership card.
She said to me,“Good grief, where are your glasses!This is a membership
to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club.”
“I’m in trouble again, and I don’t know what to do…I signed up for five jumps a week.” I told her.
Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easierbut sometimes it can be fun.
