Old enough...

...to now draw social security! Ouch........how'd that happen? Yep, Dick got official first, then me just recently. He said I ought to try signing up online. Why not? Our nearest SS office is close to 30 miles away, and what with fuel prices climbing...........let my fingers do the typing. I went online, filled out the form a week ago, and a real live fella actually called me to ask me a couple of questions.....mainly, why hadn't my hubby filed yet, since he was old enough?

I told this nice guy that hubby was still trying to decide whether to sign up now, or wait till the next magic age of 66. I had him call hubby.........he signed up. We'll see when the first checks arrive. They'll help support our travel habits!

In light of getting old, here is a bit of philosophy from the famous:

Don't worry about avoiding temptation as you grow older, it will avoid you-- Winston Churchill
