THANK YOU, SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION!

SUNSET

Ha folks I am officially old now.

I turn 65 in July–I know it’s hard to believe, I’m so mature–and I have applied for and been accepted to Medicare!

Adela from Kaiser is coming over TO MY APT. this afternoon, such is the individual attention, to pick up my app for Parts C and D or however it goes. I’m gonna get me a “Silver and Fit” card and will thus get “free” gym (for 20 bucks a month).

My only real ailment is hay fever, which right now in Southern Cal is rather a 24/7 problem.

And I am ALL, at this point, about being old. Bring on the “senior” discounts! Hold the door. Carry my packages. And give me some money.

MY FRIEND THINKS WE SHOULD START AN OLD PEOPLE’S COMMUNE
AND NAME IT “LAST CALL”

  1. Happy almost 65!! I love your photos of that gorgeous sage. Fabulous!

  2. Old? Naw, becoming eligible for Soc. Sec. doesn't have to equate as 'old'. Nope. I've Been collecting for over 20 years (applied @ 63). Since then: volunteered in Israel for two years, served a year in the Peace Corps @ 76. Old is a state of mind and heart. My wish for you, is that you awaken every morning with a "song in your heart" as God spoke to Zepaniah, telling him he'd "sing over him". BTW: I'm also sober for over 47 years. 🙂 May your Catholic life continue to speak quiet volumes to those who don't yet know the treasure of living @ the table of the Word and the Bread. Blessings daily.

    1. That's just what I was trying to say! Thank you so much and kudos on your active life of service–

  3. Hello readers and witty writer!

    Social Security, for the most part, has been very good to me, despite the need to fight for my rights. You see, I started receiving disability checks in the 90s due to coping with a mental illness. Of late, I'm doing well – singing, writing, painting and even working at a part-time job.

    And so the sun shines…
    And so life goes on…
    And so God is good…
    And so for the moment,
    All is well…

    "Have a blessed day!"
