Laughing through the changes and accepting what life has for me after retirement. My elevator might be going down, but I plan to get off on every floor, even if it's just for plumbing supplies.

My Retirement - The End of the World, No Big Deal
Time is getting shorter, but doing OK
Nuttiness, and why does the media love it.
According to some group, next Saturday is supposed to be the end of the world. I am wondering if I should pay my bills or maybe just go to Cinnebon and eat every sticky bun they have just baked. I have a family wedding that day, maybe I should write them and suggest that they take their honeymoon "this" week. If there are only days left, what decadent thing should I embark upon because this may be my last chance.
Now I believe there is the possibility that human kind can call the shots on this and blow the world up. What and who would be left; probably just roaches, stink bugs and hedge-fund big-wigs. There is so much money to be made on doom and gloom.
Every now and then we have these crazies out there with their predictions of annihilation for us all and they seem to be in their glory this year, or maybe it will happen next year and if that does not come about, well, they'll have another date.
Me, I am going to pay my electric bill tomorrow and am planning on a good blooming season and a fun summer. I also might eat a calorie-laden Cinnabon anyway, followed by some fine, fine wine. Yum, life is good, especially if you ignore the naysayers and enjoy a scoopful of some sweet gooey substance with icing on top.
