Friday Funny February 22, 2019 You Know You Are Getting Old

Happy Friday!  I just went to one of those free dinner retirement planning meetings.  (Yes, I went solely for the free dinner.)  But it did get me thinking that retirement is a lot closer than it used to be, so I must begetting older even if I do not recognize some of the signs……

Enjoy!
