Looking forward to getting out tomorrow as the buses run more often on commute days--maybe go to the beach. OMG, I've got deadlines this week, oh, the stress, don't know if I can take it:
Tuesday books are due back at the library, Wednesday turkey will be thawed out and into the oven, Thursday meet old friends at the diner, Friday pay bills. Oh, will the pressure never end?

I'm considering taping my eyes shut and sticking my fingers in my ears while saying "Watermelon, watermelon."

Shhhhhh!!! I try to keep the $$ under wraps to try to garner some pity from my peers! You know....."I'm just a poor ol' retired guy on fixed income."

It usually doesn't work though.....they all tell me I'm full if bovine excrement.

TGIM! (Thank God It is Monday)

All the worker bees are on their way to ensure my Social Security in on year.

I thank the neighbors who are nurses that they work weekends.

All the stockbrokers are fueling up for another day of enriching retirement funds

The weather blather bloviators postponed today's freezing rain with great fanfare.

It is good to be retired.

Monday! Glad to get up, breath, wiggle my toes, and see what mischief I can cause today.

Also look for a good trading opportunity
