I Look Marvelous

Loving wife and I went to a small Halloween party last night where I met some new neighbors. And while outside talking – just me and the new neighbors and another person I had never met – somehow retirement came up and I said I had four years to retire. They asked how I could retire so young and I told them 52 didn’t feel young and they all gasped. Literally gasped, and one of them said he thought I was about 32 and the other two agreed.

Made my night I tell ya.

Now we were outside at night in low-light and they had been drinking, but hey, a guy has to take it where he can get it.  For the record though, I wasn’t wearing a Brad Pitt mask.

Remember, it’s not how you feel, it’s how you look.



  1. Hey I would take that compliment too if I were you. Or me! Must have felt wonderful! The best one I had was getting my eyes examined and the tech was in her 20’s. She asked how old I was and when I said 49 – her mouth fell open. Literally. And she said “Wow! That’s what I want to look like at 49!” You can bet I floated on that allllll day.

  2. I love it when someone is drop-dead surprised at my age! Some of us just have good genes and have to lap up these compliments for as long as we can get ’em!
