Yes boss!

Okay, back on track. For those of you who live in the Pacific Northwest, Fred Meyers, aka Krogers, has senior discounts on Tuesdays. I didn't realize this until a friendly checker saw my grey hair and asked me if I was old enough to qualify. I think it's 55 and up so I more than qualify.

The topic is senior discounts, not senior health care, federal spending, motor homes in a campground, the younger generations being aboused and taken advantage of, a poor and dismal future for America, blah, blah, blah.

What part of this do you see as being part of a thread on senior discounts?

Have you enough information to understand me better now?

Stay on topic or post somewhere else. It really is very simple.

OK.. I have cleaned up this thread. This is not the thread or the forum to discuss the politics of senior discounts and how they are ruining America.

Stay on topic please..

Thanks from me too.

I don't know if this has been mentioned but one of the most helpful discounts I use is the "honored citizens" bus pass for public transportation. It includes discounts for seniors and physically disabled people for rides on mass transit in my city.

I think all cities have this type of thing and it's a really great deal. I take public transportation everywhere so I am happy to be able to have this discounted ride.

If you ride the bus, it's worth checking out.

The senior CalTrain discounts, into and out of San Francisco makes a day trip very affordable compared to driving and paying for gas and parking. More money left to spend on fun things!
