Eat It or Wear It No Brainer

Now that we are officially retired from full time jobs and admitted Senior Citizens, my motto is "If we can't eat it or wear it we don't need it".  So, we do most of our shopping at the grocery store where 'eat it' is a no brainer, and 'wear it' justifies pushing the buggy down the ben-gay isle.

It hasn't been easy, but after a couple of years of intense training, HiHoney 'got it'.  Enough so, that he goes to the grocery store without a list or me.  Until yesterday...day before today...the 19th of January...the day I received Medicare's annual 'Happy Birthday Part B Increase' notice.

There will be no negative consequences for his slip of the list...besides, I can 'wear it'...the yellow roses in my hair today and chocolate cake...well...that's a no brainer.

Happy birthday all month long, Sue! I agree! I can't wear books (or eat them) but I keep buying them. On my debit card statement, it's books and food. That's it! What did HiHoney like to buy before he saw the light? I know what YOU liked to buy! Sending love your way!

Happy Birthday and flowers in January are necessary to keep life perky. Those are gorgeous. So, no picture of the chocolate cake - guess that was eaten already. Enjoy
