Three of my closest friends and I are Vietnam Vets and we are all over 60. Most guys our age were subject to the draft in the 60's.

There sure are a lot of us but the number of Korean and WWII vets left are getting very small in number,

Wow, did I score some great freebies today!

F gave me SIX really nice looking t-shirts with a beach clean-up logo.

He said that one of the bands he hangs out with, had extras in my size and gave them to him to give to me. These will be great "retiree wear" since I normally just wear shorts and t-shirts around the house.

I got 2 free joints.

My stash was getting low so I went to the dispensary and bought a half oz of indica and a half oz of sativa.

I guess you get a free joint with each half oz -

For free today, and everyday, is all the advice offered on ER. And it's worth every penny.

Rats. I missed the father's day gift card sale at the local steakhouse. A $50 card has a $10 bonus coupon. I am out of gift cards -I keep them for myself along with the coupon.
(My Dad passed away 10 years ago-so no gifts just thoughts)

Yeah, pretty close.

14 grams in a half oz, and they were big joints, over a gram each -
