Summer has put a damper on the posts coming in for the blog this week.
Pat emailed me that he had "writer's block", and I could totally empathize with him. You see all the posts I have put up this week.
I decided to call for reinforcements. I sent an email to my kids and their spouses asking them what they think of when someone says "Old Fart". I was proud that none of them just took the easy way out and said, "You and Dad."
Jacob wrote back, "Not being able to use the self-checkout line at the grocery store."
I had to chuckle to myself, because I have seen Barry struggle with this.
Joanie said, "Super loud TV".
Well, I know that we have the sound up louder on our TV than they ever do.
Michelle said "Falling asleep watching TV/while visiting people, and looking for glasses."
Hmmm... Do I know anyone that does that?
Then, Miles replied, "Carrying around and using Kleenex."
Just then Barry walked by with a box of Kleenex and sat down.
Oh, it could have not been better if it had been planned.
