You Know You’re Getting Old When . . .

Ginger and I went for dinner Sunday night with three other couples. We actually ate at one of the friend’s home. We had roast beef, mashed potatoes, green beans, scalloped corn, fresh salad, and homemade bread. We also had a pecan dessert with coffee or tea.

It was a great evening.

After dinner we talked around the table for more than two hours about our kids, grandchildren, great grandchildren, plus we now know how to solve all of man kind problems. We spent half of our time talking about our health problems, doctor’s bedside manner, and future surgeries. This is how you know you’re getting old.
