Easy Does It

A friend sent me this suggestion ...


PATRIOTIC RETIREMENT
There's about 40 million people over 50 in the work force.
Pay them $1 million apiece severance with stipulations.
They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings -- Unemployment fixed.
They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered -- Auto Industry fixed. They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -- Housing Crisis fixed.



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a meeting about EASY DOES IT

for reminders of my faulty thinking -- basically, I am wired differently than most people and I accept this

that I have been relieved of solving the world's problems and I no longer am responsible for everything that goes wrong. WHEW!!

for the sitcoms when I was a kid -- they espoused family values and always had a positive message and moral

BONUS GRATITUDE ...

HERE'S some great photos of the history of AA.

I am so glad we don't have to wear a shirt, tie and jacket to an AA meeting anymore.

Great stuff on the history of AA. I also can accept my faulty thinking most days.

There's a group here that requires its members to wear suits/ties (men) and dresses or skirts (women). I've never attended that meeting. Maybe I'll wear a skirt and go, and just say I got the dress code mixed up.

Wouldn't it be nice if our problems could be solved in thirty minutes, and we got a bonus moral lesson as well?

You know, I really think that that part about the over 50 folks makes sense. I'm not just saying that because it would be such a wonferful think but honestly....it would really work. Jobs would open, we could all buy American cars, heck, I would even buy all of my kids a new car. I could help them with their mortgages....oh! and Joe would get $1 million too. Whoo hoo! I could finally retire. Funny too because I was seriously thinking today about starting to plan for disability retirement (if you can call it that!) for myself. I vote yes. Where do we cast our ballot?

Hey Bill. If you do wear the skirt to the AA meeting please take pictures ..... outside of course.
