Well this is just a tiny bit OT...My thoughts on retirement. Retirement is like the first day of summer vacation, everyday.

When life gives you a lemon and you make lemonade, you have to supply your own sugar.

The way I heard it is the more bread in the above sandwich you have the less crap you have to eat.

A guy I worked with on my first real (post-college) job put it this way:

"That's life -- Ain't no way in the world we're gonna get out alive!"

Life is like an onion - you peel away layer after layer, and in the end, you are left with nothing but tears. Well that was depressing, wasn't it?


When we were little we used to say--


That's life.
What's life?
A magazine.
How much does it cost?
A nickel.
I haven't got a nickel.
Well, that's life.
