Birthday August 10, 2016

THANK YOU

Thank you for all of the well wishes on my birthday.

But let’s get one thing straight:

I am not old.

There is something that I need to get off my chest now that I’m 65. I want you to know that I am going to petition our Member of Parliament to table a private member’s bill to change the name of Old Age Security ( OAS ). The Old Age Persons Act came into effect in 1927 when life expectancies for males was 59 and 61 for women. Both of these numbers are now hovering around 80.

I am proposing that OAS be renamed YES … Young, Energetic, Seniors.

Excuse me while I go to Sullivan’s Barbershop and get my first senior’s discount haircut. Truth be told, they should have been giving me a discount a long time ago !

    You have the right attitude, Len. I am older than you are and I am still young!!! Sally Central is now one hundred years old and she has many youthful ways!!!!☺ Enjoy that haircut.

    Happy Birthday, Len and many more.

    Dave and I tried a trip to Florida this winter- “a trip of a life time”.

    I would like to see some discussion on this topic. It is past time because for most people it is insane. It ended up with a repeat of my cancer showing itself after a couple of years in remision and I had no pain medication that would touch that kind of agony, and the insurance co. insisted we turn around and go home.Three days packing and the dog. No vehicle leaves this yard without “Charlie.” If you know the stoy behind “Charlie,” you’ll know why he is so precious.
    We couldn’t afford an MRI to find our what was going on. Never exdpecting what it really was. The insurance company that couldn’t do enough for us when we paid the policy. They told us to head home to Canada. After we had paid to help me, $1900 travel insurancc through some ‘scheisters” recommended by our Avion Visa Card (never, never
    again).

    The US is a lovely place butI’m hearing more and more disgruntlement abount the rate of insurantce for foreign travel to other countries and it is way past time to take a good, hard look at some of of these other vacation spots, with much more reaasonable
    rates, as well as comfortable and smaller and safer homes and small apartments. We’ve even stayed in a castle in Dublin and
    WOW, the music and ambience was beyond what I could I could describe here.. It was the real historical deal in Dublin. Out of this world. We stayed all over the UK, Ireland,
    Whales, all over the Canadian’ west,north, etc. I’d love to hear your comments. You do not HAVE to always pick the US of A. to holiday. Start learning a new languate in preparation for a different countryll Insurances can be much cheapet in other countries.

    Thanks for the space, Len.

    P.S. They do not recycole in Florida or in mOST OF fLORIA OR THE US. Most of the trash (everything) is shipped to Cuba and further south as people told us. Every day, cerel boxes, juice boxes, detergent and shampoo bottles, every carton, box, paper towel. It killed me to throw everything in the garbaqe. You won’t see garbage in the Theme Parks. No Way!

    Check out.
