Every day I wake – I wake with the thought that today I will have an epiphany – that a light bulb will go on in my head and “walla” I will have a brilliant idea as to what to share on this blog.

Today – due to checking my Facebook page before doing anything else, my thoughts went to the political scene (because a lot of that stuff has now migrated to Facebook) but then I thought – nope – I don’t want to write about politics, too controversial. Besides the only thing that comes to my mind when I even think about the political scene is “when are the parties going to begin thinking of the American people instead of their own agenda?” So, you are in luck – I am not going down that road.

Next – again after seeing a lot of material on Facebook – I thought I might want to talk about some of the things being discussed from a religious standpoint. But here again my views in this arena tend to follow the same thought process Dolly Pardon tends to have as made known to me by a posting on Facebook where she shares some of her viewpoints on the subject. Without going into all the details or why the item was even posted on Facebook – let me just say that I agree with what was posted that ended with the following statement: As good Christians we shouldn’t be judging anyway. We’re supposed to love and accept each other. So, once again – I won’t be going down that road either.

Finally I say to myself: “Self – you love to write if only to get your thoughts on paper and share with others your rants and ramblings. What will you write about now that you are in that writing mood again?” Then the epiphany struck again – talk about something funny. We do not spend enough time laughing anymore.

There are two things in my life that really keep me upbeat – well if one throws in music – then there are three things. Laughing, dancing, and music! When I am doing any of these three things, everything else happening in the world or in my own little part of this journey called life, seem trivial. Of course I do have a lot of fun when sitting here at my computer creating posts such as this one too!

So, here is my way of getting those of you reading this to smile, laugh, or simply say that this guy has lost it. Did you ever ask yourself the following questions?

  • Why are a wise man and wise guy opposites?
  • Why isn’t 11 pronounced onety one?
  • If people from Poland are called “Poles”, why aren’t people from Holland called “Holes?”

And for you shoppers out there:

  • Did you ever notice how easy it is to identify people who can’t count to ten? They are the ones in front of you in the supermarket express lane. – June Henderson

And last but not least for those of you not quite tired of this line of drivel:

  • Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go. – Oscar Wilde

OK – I am leaving now!   But, I’ll be back!

About iglengel

Welcome to my blog: I retired in September of 1996 after twenty-five years as an Underwriting Manager (and one year with a smaller insurance company) and have written blog postings on the website Retirement-online.com prior to setting up this Word Press free site. Having retired almost twenty years ago I have experienced my own retirement transition. I survived and you will too. Oddly enough, now that I have more time, I am discovering various things about myself that I would not have imagined myself doing in retirement. Why does it take so long for, we as individuals, to stop and think about ME!? Join me as I share with you some of the shenanigans we have been up to since retiring. Retirement is and can be a whole lot of fun. Welcome to my site – remember – retirement is not the destination we are seeking – it is the journey! I encourage you to visit often, provide comments, ask questions and add your own insights. We are all on this journey together.
