More Signs You're Getting Old

Next year February will have a tomorrow.

Which reminds me of a couple goofy calendar quirks. Apparently, coming up this July, there will be five Fridays, five Saturdays, and five Sundays. If the world survives and the Lord hasn't returned by then, you'll see that again in 823 years. So yeah, kind of rare.

And Veteran's Day this year may be kind of special. The date will be 11-11-11. Be sure you commemorate it at 11:11 a.m.



You've stopped giving money to your children and now give money to your parents.

You've found yourself comparing today's weather against weather in previous years.

You have no trouble remembering your children's names, just which ones are which.

Your high school yearbook is now home to three different species of mold.

You start to make fun of the geeky people who wear Bermuda shorts and sandals with socks, until you realize that's what you put on this morning.

If you hear "Stairway to Heaven" on Muzak one more time, you think your head will explode.

You lift weights, but the only things getting more defined are the veins on the back of your hands and your neck.

WELCOME to YOUR WEEK: March is right up my alley, celebrating International Mirth Month, and so much more. It's Music In Our Schools Month, and it's National Craft Month. Get lots of ideas here. March is also National Nutrition Month, and it's Women's History Month. And tomorrow, in 1961, the Peace Corps were born. If you boss somebody around, you should know that Friday is Employee Appreciation Day, and on Saturday, the 1,150-mile dog sled race known as the Iditarod begins.
