My thoughts on everything from albacore tuna to zebras
One middle-aged adult-child
Has gray beard and ponytail
Is well fed and friendly
Doesn’t drink or smoke
Smiles and laughs frequently
Has poor eyesight,
Is deaf in one ear and can’t hear from the other
Missing three teeth
Has an acquaintance with:
Gout, arthritis, kidney stones, gall stones, enlarged spleen, cirrhosis, heel spurs, bulging discs, pinched nerves, shot nerves, high blood pressure and occasional bouts of “feelin’ poorly”
Can predict weather using various body parts; knees, hips, hands, shoulders, etc.
Guilty of sometimes thinking highly of himself and sometimes not.
Wonders often what it all means.
Can often be found fishing (not often enough), working in the garden, riding steam trains, writing short stories or watching the clouds roll by, enjoying life.
Feels most comfortable, relaxed and loved in the arms of his wife, the love of life.
Do not medicate
Engage in pleasant conversation, laugh and smile
If he’s fishing, join him.
If he’s watching clouds roll by do not disturb.
Lost is a good thing.
