Rik - you got me by 1 year. I have a letter from Service Canada sitting on my desk, telling me to get ready for CPP in six months.


I tell folks that I am not aging, I am maturing like a fine red wine; lay me down in a cool dark place, turn me ever 3 months, and keep my cork wet.

with all the BS you subscribe to, wouldn't a mushroom be a better comparison than red wine?

When I was a kid, the "F" word was Fart. And I got my mouth washed out for saying it and I didn't even know what it meant. And now I are a "Old Fart." 66. And Saltwater Suzi and I have lived aboard for almost 15 years - about a third of our married life.
A few months ago, Suzi said to me, "Larry, I'm tired of pumping the toilet." So, in our dotage, we brought our home down the ICW and stopped at Velcro Beach, Florida. The boat will be going up for sale and we will be "swallowing the anchor."
Besides, at our age, I fear that it is required by law that we retire and move to Florida. Stay tuned for further announcements regarding the sale of Kanau, (pronounced Ka-NAH-ou) our 1977 Morgan Out Island.
P.S. The copious amounts of rum has finally mitigated the taste of the soap.

I thought she just meant she wanted an electric head installed.

61 next month, but I feel like I'm only 60:-)) This looks like a pretty good group to be a member of.
