We offer observations on the human condition from a twenty year old mind trapped in an 80 year old body.


I oppose jail for nonviolent offenders. Let them work out their expenses.

I feel fury encountering a chubby six year old. Make his parents walk two miles a day as punishment.

A flash of lightening in the sky must be a message from someone–or something.

Human evolution prevents undoing past actions. Too bad.

I cheated today. I purchased a senior coffee and used it to get a coke.

If I see young girls in plaid skirts I assume they are from the local Catholic school.

I wonder how humans would explain to Aliens why the lower parts of our body cannot be seen by others

To love is to extend life, to hate is to shorten it.

There is no greater satisfaction in life than self respect.

Barack Obama constantly communicates, but he is no communicator.

I wonder what John McCain thinks at midnight when all alone– is this really me?

A single white haired woman smiled at me. I was not interested. I wonder why.

I possess an unusual capacity to be content when alone.

Old men toss the empty cup of coffee away. I retain everything, one never knows.

I never see children reading the comics. I do –everyday!

As I reach 80 years of age, I feel sleepy at 9:30 a.m. Within a few moments, I am awake for the rest of the day.

There is always a moment of hesitation when the waitress says, ‘pay me or the cashier.’ I have to think about it.

I feel sad seeing an attractive women who could be gorgeous if she dropped thirty pounds.

I get confused in a parking lot which indicates spots for “customers.” I wonder am I the customer to which it refers.

I have a moment of fear encountering a person my age who needs a walker.

Every time a heavy set man sits, he heaves a sigh.
