19.  It annoys me when someone ask me how much I paid for something.

20.  I have a gift of discernment and it has saved my neck many times.

21.  I am looking forward to passing the torch, cutting back on office work and opening a new chapter in my life.  (I think I am)

40.  I am not a real early morning person.

41.  I am not good at losing weight.

44.  I can’t play the piano, but I like to teach.

45.  I like to take adventuresome drives down roads less trodden. 

I just felt like writing some thought that won’t be any impact on history and won’t make much difference 100 years from now.  It is just me…right now.

  1. I am glad you asked about #2. I have found that a older man wearing a ballcap and driving a truck is never in a hurry. It seem like I will be wanting to get to the office and I will get behind this type person. Most usually, they are driving slow, turning their head from one side to the other and sometimes picking their nose. Just watch and you will see what I mean.

    My husband is older, wears a ballcap and drives a Ford truck. I hope he doesn’t do these things. 🙂
