From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 10/30/17, 7:39 AM:
|For those passing out
candy this year: when a teenager comes to your door please give them
candy without saying, "Aren't you too old to be doing this?"
They could be out doing
things much worse. I would rather have them knocking on my door than
having them do dangerous things. Let them be kids as long as they can
be. They are growing up way too fast.
Thank you so very much, Joan! I quite agree!

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/29/19:
|When the new activities
director for the rec center walked in, all us retirees quickly
took notice. She was 20-something and gorgeous. My buddy
whispered, “She makes me wish I was 30 years older.”
“Don’t you mean 30 years younger?” I asked.
“No. If I were 30 years younger, I’d still never have a chance with a woman like that. If I were 30 years older, it wouldn’t bother me so much.”
