I Joined AARP Damn it!

Enough said. I am soon to be 50 and I got the AARP letter. How did they know?

I was still basking in the glory of Uncle Sam begging me to join the Army or Navy. That was 1974.

There’s been a lot of water under that bridge. Whew!

I like what my sister Judy said about herself. “I am a brand new old person!” she told me.

So I’m a brand new old person too.

If you look around you'll notice there aren't as many old people around as you used to see. I guess she is right. I'm on deck.

I guess I’m going to have to start getting up at some God awful time now, go to Hardees with all the old men and drink coffee.

Just to be mean I signed up Gigi even though she is 47.

Afternoon Addendum

Yep I am old. I stopped by Lowes Foods for some dog food and peanuts. The bag girl asked me if I needed help taking my groceries to the car. I guess I looked like Walter Brennan to her.

Then I stop by CVS to pick up some pepto bismol for Haley and a prescription. The two girls at the counter were commiting on the taste of pepto bismol. I said, "it tastes like Bazooka Bubble Gum." They had no idea what I was talking about.

Do they still make those bricks of Bazooka Bubble Gum?

Yes, they still make that gum and it still has really bad comics in it.

Look at the bright side, at least no one accussed you of being married to Mark this time!
