How are you dealing with healthcare in retirement, medicare, Obamacare, other?I put this on my tank thread, which has nothing to do with tanks so I will also put it here.
Good Morning people.
This morning I felt really energized, probably because I only had one Grand Marnier last night before bed.
So I figured I would do more exercise this morning. I felt like going to the beach, down and up those 165 steps but I also wanted to bike ride. Actually, like most people I hate to exercise. But my wife gets after me about staying in shape.
No, not the shape I am in, more like Brad Pitts shape but although they sell live pigs near here, I haven't seen any of them flying yet.
So I get on my bicycle and head to the beach. The beach isn't far but it's up hill both ways.
It must have been early because I didn't see anyone walking dogs or going to work. Then I remembered it's Sunday.
I get to the beach door. Yes we lock our beach so no one steals it. I left the bike there and stared at the steps and the beautiful ocean at the bottom, below the clouds.
I start walking down the stairs and this time I don't count them as I normally do just to pass the time and see if I can still count. I pass a few deer and rabbits which I always say good morning to. I don't know if they are the same deer all the time as they don't seem to recognize me and probably just think "Oh great, here comes that bald Geezer messing up the serineness.
There is huge vegetation on both sides of the stairs which are elevated above the cliff.
I was thinking today, who was the guy who had to cut through this thick stuff to mark out where to put these stairs and did he have tick insurance. You can't even get down this cliff without having mountain climbing gear because it is so steep that if you step away from the stairs, the mountain starts to fall down into the sea.
I get to the bottom and sit on a bench there. They should put one of those CPR things there for Geezers like me but I stay a while and look out at the Sound searching for sharks.
Last week they saw a huge fin sticking out of the water. I don't know if it was a fin connected to a shark or a Catalina gobi but I saw video's of it. I used to SCUBA dive here and never saw anything.
Walking up was hard, I think because I had so many ticks on me they were weighing me down.
I had to stop a few times, to say good bye to the deer and rabbits but also t catch my breath that I lost 30 years ago.
I got to the top and found my bicycle. In my old neighborhood I just would have found a note thanking me for the bike.
I got on the bike and headed home, uphill again.
But I didn't go home, I don't know why but I rode past my house at an unbelievable rate, OK, it wasn't that fast but there was a young Lady running with one of those running carriages pushing a baby and I didn't want her to think she was in better shape than I was in, but she was. Even the baby was.
I kept going, farther and farther all the way (about a mile, OK 3/4s of a mile) to where I couldn't go any more without getting flattened by a tractor trailer. I felt like Bruce Jenner. Well, not "Exactly". I am still a man and will remain that way. Mostly because I don't know what dress size I am.
Then I came back home, passing the baby again who was shaking his fists at me (it could have been a pacifier) and I am ready to go out for breakfast.
I still can't get in more than a third of these stairs, you need to be in a hot air balloon for that.
I want to rehab opossums— they’re my favorite animal & I love them so much I could cry.
“cute” is in the eye of the beholder.
A fella at work keeps raccoons and skunks, the vet has removed the stink glands, is it the same with possums?I’ve even read up on litterbox training them.
Well good morning, The cool weather will help the linemen get things up and running. FYI that wicked front came threw hear SE-MI 6pm sat. Best of luckGood morning! Day 3 with no commercial power begins [emoji51] Thankfully I can still hear the generator running out back and there are no more storms in the forecast.
Thanks man! Its a nice morning at 60 degrees [emoji3] Glad you came through it unscathed. The last time we had weather this bad was 2013. Lost power for 5 days with that one [emoji15]Well good morning, The cool weather will help the linemen get things up and running. FYI that wicked front came threw hear SE-MI 6pm sat. Best of luck
Healthcare is easy. Don't go to college. If I went to college I would have been an electrician engineer making half the money for twice the hours and I would have never been able to retire. I became an electrician which at the time, (Not now), I didn't have to go to college. (unfortunately you do now)How are you dealing with healthcare in retirement, medicare, Obamacare, other?
There are scent glands and there is scent. The musk and smell from the Urine and body never go away but all in all they don’t smell bad. Not like my pet marbled red fox.A fella at work keeps raccoons and skunks, the vet has removed the stink glands, is it the same with possums?
