  1. Number 5, especially enjoyable…I’m practically there: my recliner doesn’t recline all the way, and I paid more than I should have; yelling at the TV–daily! I can’t lose my glasses, though–I’m blind without them 🙂 I’m a long way from completely gray hair–but rather than beige, I tend to wear gray more than I realized. Love your posts–stay well, Doug!!

    • Thanks, D. I find Wacykpedia is an invaluable source of disinformation. Second only to Ambrose Bierce’s ‘Devil’s Dictionary’, which contains such gems as: Egotist (n.) A person of low taste, more interested in himself than in me.
