I turned 65 last week, no big changes, except going on Medicare. I retired from the day to day running of a couple of businesses 15 years ago at 50. The sale of those companies will be finalized by the end of March. Everything that I have is paid for, and now a big pile of cash for my golden years. Single too. Tried marriage once, it didn’t take.
I always lived by my own rules. I broke those made by others if I didn’t agree with them.
Some people had an issue with my moral flexibility, that was their problem.
But, I always kept to the Eleventh Commandment: Thou shall never, never, ever get caught.
Navigator66, you sound like my kind of guy. I live my life, and bother no one. If the rules/laws happen to follow what I am doing, great! If not- eh.
We should get a beer some time. You are buying though- Three kids in three years has melted my mid-sized pile of cash
Well, as far as a cabinet position, I don’t think I would last long. My first advise to the Cheeto-in- Chief would be he needs to get a plexiotomy. That’s the procedure where a clear piece of acrylic is surgically inserted into the front abdominal wall, so he can see where he is going with his head up his ass.
There were rumors in the city I was in that when an animal rescue group was denied a permit for a no kill shelter, and given 7 days to turn their rescues over to animal control, a jerk of a local businessman had a HVAC system installed in an unused warehouse behind his machine shop. It was said that when animal control showed up to remove the rescues from the groups non-permitted shelter their building was empty, wall to wall and completely cleaned. I heard that 3 years later when the rescue group was finally able get their permits that 467 rescues had passed through that old warehouse.
Another rumor connected with the above was that a covert campaign of vile slander was directed at the city council members who denied the permit until they were voted out of office.
The big mystery of the area was the young mother and her two children who just up and disappeared. The story was she and the kids were being abused by her husband and she couldn’t get any relief from the courts. In fact she was ordered to return the children to their father. Then she was gone. The husband was cleared in her disappearance. The speculation was someone had paid a private pilot to fly her and the kids half way across the country in the middle of the night without a flight plan, where she was taken in by a women’s group who had just received a nice donation to their cause. It was whispered that her jerk of a boss was somehow involved, he was interviewed 3 times by the authorities, but since he knew nothing, there was nothing he could tell. The case went cold and everybody moved on.
