Ramblings of a Retired Mind

Today I was in a store that sells sunglasses and only sunglasses. A young lady walks over to me and asks, "What brings you in today?" I looked at her and said, "I’m interested in buying a refrigerator." She didn’t quite know how to respond. Am I getting to be that age?

I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is when you still have something on the ball but you are just too tired to bounce it.

I thought about making a fitness movie for folks my age and call it ‘Pumping Rust’.

When people see a cat’s litter box they always say, “Oh, have you got a cat?” Just once I want to say, “No, it’s just for company!”

Employment application blanks always ask who is to be called in case of an emergency. I think you should write, “An ambulance.”

I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then it dawned on me: they are cramming for their finals. As for me, I’m just hoping God grades on the curve.

In case you never noticed, the Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL.

The sole purpose of a child’s middle name is so he can tell when he’s really in trouble.

Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Some people try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know ‘why’ I look this way. I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved.

You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Lord: keep Your arm around my shoulder and Your hand over my mouth.
