Anticipating Codgerdom

Anticipating Codgerdom

Sometimes I have a feeling I’m becoming rather stuffy.
My reflexes, once numerous, are getting sort of fluffy.
Whereas shocking folks was once my avocation,
all of my bravado seems to be on a vacation.

But probably my seventies are simply a respite.
Once I become older, I can cuss and hit and bite
and create all the problems in the realm of my ability
and everyone will not blame me. They’ll blame it on senility

    I admit to laughing out loud at that picture. Thanks so much for sharing it. Tell me: Was he aware he’d been photographed? Had he just woken up? Hubby used to look like that time to time, and wasn’t pleased I had a camera. Come to think of it, hubby never liked the camera…

      It keeps changing my editing after it is saved, published and viewed. Then the next time it is changed. I edit and save again. It is right. Next time, changed back again. Mainly centering and color of type.

        That was because I used notifications. I CAN’T use it on a post response — not mine or anyone else’s. This is a really bizarre bunch of problems. I’m hoping they just fix them and I don’t have to negotiate with them. I really AM tired.
