And its not his fault its mine, At least he hasnt claimed at all Loss of earnings to be backdated, But before I reply to him, I have to have it all translated, As he is not from these shores, But just resident for a while, So as they wont deport him, I have to pay up and smile, Luckily I may also pay myself, From what I have been reading, As as a victim of a burglary, Im entitled to money from my speeding, When caught recently at midnight, Doing twenty in a fifteen zone, Coming up my private driveway, TOrepparttar entrance of my home. http://www.stiffsteiffs.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/poems.htm

On Turning Sixty

But ifrepparttar benefits and drawbacks of my hearing impairment are more or less equal,repparttar 118215 short-term memory loss that's accompanied my sexagenarianism has a plus side that actually outweighs its minus side. I'm speaking, of course, ofrepparttar 118216 guarantee it can afford me that a movie I'm going to will be a good one. I'll notice, for instance, an ad for a movie and tell a friend about it. The friend will advise me that I sawrepparttar 118217 movie just a week ago. I'll ask him if I liked it and if he says, "Yeah, you couldn't stop talking about it," I'll think, hey, how often does a movie come with THAT kind of recommendation and I'll go immediately to see it. I'm told that I've seen "Pearl Harbor" eight times now.

(I might add here that my short-term memory loss in no way affects my ability to rememberrepparttar 118218 last time I had sex.)

But ofrepparttar 118219 many compensatory rewards that turning sixty provides, there's one that I value most of all. Although I can still croak at a RELATIVELY early age, I'll be sparedrepparttar 118220 embarrassment of expiring at a TRAGICALLY early age.
