That is exactly how I feel. Them and American Indians. I am ashamed of what white face did to them.

A friend emailed this to me, so I thought I'd share the chuckle!

Why I love getting older
  1. My goal for 2018 was to lose 10 pounds. Only have 14 to go.
  2. Ate salad for dinner. Mostly croutons & tomatoes. Really just one big round crouton covered with tomato sauce. And cheese. FINE, it was a pizza! I ate a pizza, are you happy ?
  3. How to prepare Tofu: (a) throw it in the trash or (b) grill some meat, chicken or fish
  4. I just did a week's worth of cardio after walking into a spider web.
  5. I don't mean to brag, but I finished my 14-day diet food supply in 3 hours and 20 minutes.
  6. A recent study has found women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it.
  7. Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.
  8. Senility has been a smooth transition for me.
  9. Remember back when we were kids and every time it was below zero outside they closed school? Yeah, me neither.
  10. I may not be that funny or athletic or good looking or smart or talented. I forgot where I was going with this.
  11. I love being almost 75, I learn something new every day and forget 5 others.
  12. A thief broke into my house last night. He started searching for money so I woke up and searched with him.
  13. I think I'll just put an "Out of Order" sticker on my forehead and call it a day.
  14. November 4, 2018 marks the end of Daylight Saving Time. Hope you don't forget to set your bathroom scale back 10 pounds on Saturday night.
  15. Just remember, once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed.
  16. Life is like a roll of toilet paper. It goes faster when it gets near the end.

Today was a nice Thanksgiving with the family. The high was 74 degrees, great for having the oven going, windows wide open, and eating outside.

My Bird of Paradiseís first bloom fully open today too, which was nice to see. Iíve been patiently waiting for it.

I sure hope that my 90 year old aunt who lives on Stokes Hill outside of Rome is all nicely tucked in for the night. That is pretty chilly.

It's 2 degrees? TWO? I don't know what it is here but probably not quite as cold as that. Should be against the law.

Anyway, tomorrow is another day and they say we're in for a warm spell.

Autumn leaves are pretty much done here in Tennessee. Managed to get this picture of the maples in the backyard yesterday. Been a breezy day and the leaves are falling like rain so a totally different look today.
