Time flies…..when you’re having fun.
AARP? Must be an American thing.
I remember my Dad’s chagrin when he was able to claim a senior discount for both his children as well as himself.
Roz, I thought you were only 44.
How old does that make ‘Roz’ ? Oh, wait that must #50 on list of things not to discuss with ‘Roz’ ! ! !
When I was in junior high, I used to babysit my little cousins. Not only do they all qualify for AARP but all but one qualify for their S.S. Retirement Pensions!
I had the same reaction the first time I had a student who was the child of a former student.
I’m not sure which is worse – seeing your kids hid retirement age or frequently burying your former classmates.
Burying your child is the absolute worst.
You bet, wife and I have them!
I once asked a woman whose grandson had just become a father how she felt about being a great-grandmother. She said that was fine, but it was harder to accept that her daughter was now a grandmother!
I get that same feeling when I see kids I babysat as a 12 year old are having kids. And a couple of their babies have kids!
I am most grateful for my S.S. and pension. Especially after hearing how so many had trouble receiving their unemployment benefits during the pandemic. That is ONE advantage of being a senior citizen. Thanx, FDR 1935.
My mother and sister were teachers and got a kick out of seeing students years after having them in class. I have enjoyed seeing scouts in a troop I was involved with graduate college and marry and become parents. Nor retirees yet!
