You know you're getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.
So this morning, we got things ready for lunch, and before lunch my mother and the kids went for a walk to the shops. I keep trying to get them to exercise and while normally we would ride our bikes, I felt it was important to spend time with my mother. Later today, we got to play darts, and though there was a slight argument doing so, things improved. And we got to watch The Voice again.
And last of all, with chess, one more tournament has been completed since my last post on this topic. This time, I finished at what I consider to be a respectable 167th, which does not sound too good, but it was in a tournament featuring 1419 players. However, I have not done as well in my recent matches and my rating has dropped. But I am still learning, as are the kids (though reluctantly).
And this might make you laugh.
A blonde stormed up to the front desk of the library and said, "I have a complaint!"
"I borrowed a book last week and it was horrible!"
"What was wrong with it?" asked the librarian.
"It had way too many characters and there was no plot whatsoever!"
The librarian nodded and said, "Ahh. You must be the person who took our phone book."
