As as retired chemist, I approve of today’s cartoon!!
My husband started to look old at age 75 when his RA, osteoarthritis, peripheral neuropathy, and fibromyalgia together ganged up on him. Then the Parkinson’s disease the next year did him in and he died shortly before he turned 80 (a year and a half ago.) Agent Orange exposure in Vietnam was the cause. I have been blessed with good health so far and will be 79 the end of this year. I seldom have any aches or pains other than when my trainer at the gym tries to add a bit more weight w/o me noticing. :)
Shouldn’t Newton’s name have come into the discussion, too? I mean, if he hadn’t discovered gravity, then Janis wouldn’t have fallen!!
I like Clanton fruitcakes.
Definitely a Roger Fox kind of stunt!
My grandfather taught me how to drive a stick shift when I was 12 (54 Chevy) and then my mom actually taught me how to drive in traffic, park, etc, all on a 1950 Plymouth (no power steering or brakes and 3 speed shift on the column. Driver’s Ed warn’t offered in schools in my area in the 50s. Fortunately, my dad bought a beautiful 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 automatic when I was in the eleventh grade, not too long before I turned 16. So on my birthday (four days after Christmas) we went to the courthouse and I took the written test, which I passed just fine, and then we went back after lunch and I did the driving test, which I also passed. This was long before seat belts so when the policeman who did the driving tests told me to stop, I stopped!! Quickly!! He didn’t count off, thought, because he did say to stop in a tone that meant right away. I’ve driven numerous shift cars and trucks since then, the last being a 1999 Chevy S10, which I drove for 15 years. I was tired of shifting gears by then so have switched to an automatic
She was the rescue dog that they decided to keep, or at least I thought so. I thought her name was Lucy, maybe not.
I miss Lucy. Did I miss a day or two that explained where she went?
Yes, No Work, No Credit on homework or tests, even for my little geniuses (I taught in a high school for students gifted in math and science) who could do it in their heads. They sometimes made mistakes and then I could show them where their thought process was wrong.
