I throughly enjoyed this! What a fun time. Was this multiple "shows" or just one around Christmas (per the wreath)? My favorite was the instrumental of Layla, good job guys. Brought tears to my eyes for the memories............Thanks for sharing!

It was a Christmas party. I was going to send this to my friend who thinks all retirees do is sit on benches in a mall. Why do some people just assume that once you hit 65 you lose your ability to have fun? Ha ha, I like to dance when I was 20, why wouldn't I still be dancing now?

Remember that ad where the 30-something kids are tallking about how "mom and dad must be asleep. Poor things, they get so tired these days" and then you see the truth... mom and dad are down at the beach dancing with their friends. Wish I could remember what that ad was selling. Fun ad, but didn't exactly sell their product.

Have you heard of e-sports ?
That's the crowd of professional gamers that people all watch on twitch.
Now when folks think of gamers they think 16-18 and the 20'something crowd.

There's a team of profession gamers where the youngest gamer is 62 years old.
They compete in Counter Strike games. That's a first person shooter game.
They call themselves the "Silver Snipers" and are sponsored by Lenovo.

sorry to interrupt such a pleasant conversation.....


does your SS check always come on the same day? Mine is two days early again this month. It is not "pending". It is there. It has come early enough that I received two in one month. Just barely but it happens. Mine generally is deposited on the third of the month.


I don't know why this bothers me. It doesn't bother me much. There is no holiday this month that I know of to cause this. Just curious.

Do you mean the third Wednesday? Because SS checks are always deposited on the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Wednesday depending upon your day of birth. I've no clue how you could get 2 payments in the same month.
If you were born on the:
1st–10th of the month: Social Security check deposited on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.
11th–20th of the month: Social Security check deposited on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.
21st–31st of the month: Social Security check deposited on the 4th Wednesday of each month.

Edit to add: I just discovered this - does it apply?
"You started receiving benefits before 1997: Your Social Security check is paid on the third day of the month."

By the way, if you want a laugh, feel free to check out my dorky dance moves. I'm the one with the long blond hair that's in the crowd dancing somewhere around the 3:15 minute mark.
I watched the video and thought the band and video was really good. I'd gladly go to see them if they were local. My husband plays guitar... and I wish he'd get together with some musicians and do something like that.

In all my years I have seen exactly one hummingbird. It came right up in front of my face and I didn't recognize it at first. It's wings were going so fast and I thought it was a giant bug.. Lol and then I realized it was a hummingbird. They are amazing.

I think I'll get a hummingbird feeder and see if I can attract some here.

They really practiced for the party, but most of the time it's just a group of guys having fun jamming in a garage.

whew!


it does not apply I have been scouring the web looking for an answer. I finally found a place on the SS website that said "with limited exclusions" and then gave the birthday chart you posted.


So I am a "limited exclusion"


How could I get two checks in one month? It happened twice that I noticed (and I think I would notice. remembering is something else). I got my regular deposit on the 3rd and another, for the next month, on the last day of the same month. No holidays involved. I have a friend who experienced the same thing at the same time. She also gets her deposit on the 3rd and neither of us receive SSI which was the only deviation mentioned that I could find, other than the "limited exclusions"


thank you people who reached out to let me know that I am not alone
