I enjoy the smaller Moments in Life since i turned 50

Like coming Home early.... my Betty in Bed...sneaking out in the Garage ....posting a silly Story on how my Day was on this Forum.... since my Betty does not ask anymore...... Yep the Honey Moon is over...... but the Honey to Do Lit is endlessssssssssssssssss.......

I enjoy nothing more in Life coming Home at all Hours of the Night and Day been greeted by 2 Hounds laying on the Sofa taking Bets ........

if I will slip and fall on the Basset Hound Slooper on the Tile Floor before I open the Vet Bill.......

AAhh the finer Moments in Life when you turn 50 sure I could trade in the Betty for a new Model the Abarth for an Slk.....

but honestly with a new Betty ....... my Visa Bill would be endleeeeeeesssss... I do not know how Hef does it.......

trading the Abarth for another Slk would be easy.........but than I have to go back to my old Mechanic listing to his sad Story how his Betty left him.... with the Guy from the Parts Dept. and now there is a Volkswagen in his Driveway...........

Been 50 is Interesting in 2013... our Parents told us .... at 50..... you have an empty Nest......... the Kids will be gone ..... and Life in Florida is not that bad..... as long as you stay away from Jerry Seinfeld Parents.....

Ghee Dad are you sure.........

Well I can not complain Life at 50 in my House is an organized Zoo.......

my Betty is asleep I just slipped on Basset Hound Slooper while opening the Vet Bill........ one of the Terrorists just told me .... I am out of female Hygiene Products......... I tossed her the Key ..... told her that is the Way my Dad showed me how to drive....... when I was out of Beer at 16........... and the Insurance Card is in the Glove Box.....

Yes I know Life in 2013 is different...... you learn like as you go along.... like framing your last 401k Statement in the Bathroom to remind you to buy more Guiness Stocks..........

You know been 50 is weird my Dad never told about that part of Life......

I start to enjoy been 50...... I can tune out my Betty ........ when she wants me to go Shoe Shopping at Macy,s.... leave an empty Wallet on the Kitchen Island and the Card for free Coffee at 7/11 is still there in the Morning.............

The only regret I have been 50........ I should have signed up for Life Alert at 40......

because slipping on Basset Hound Slooper at 50 holding a cold Beer in one Hand while reading the Vet Bill in the other ....... really screws up your back...... at 20 ..... I saved 2 Liters..... doing the Disco Split and the Girls thought I was.... hot...........


Only 2 more Hours before my Betty goes to work stepping over me sending me a nasty Text at Noon....... complaining why I passed out on the Floor with a Beer and my Eyes open.............


Yep enjoying the smaller Moments in Life at 50 is priceless.......slipping on the Floor with the Vet Bill and a cold Beer.......

watching the Life Alert Commercial in Hd on my new gigga Screen.... darn it I do not want to complain but ..........

I miss them old Days when Mercedes Mini and Renault fought at the Rally Monte Carlo.... in deep Snow....... and a Weber Carb was the King....

in the Tuning World....

Sure I enjoy the smaller Moments in Life been 50 but honestly.... have you ever tried to dial 911 with a cracked Screen on your Iphone.... when you holding on to a Beer and Vet Bill..... it will not work.......

This Post was just a Drill....... to prepare you ...... turning 50...... Make sure you have your Sheeps in Order........:biglau gh:.....


I know Woolly does.......
