What do Retired People do all day?...Chinese Eye Test

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.

Here's an example of what one retired couple do to stay active and have a little harmless fun: the other day my wife and I went into town and went into a shop. We were only in there for about 5 minutes.When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and said, 'Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?'

He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him a Nazi turd. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires. So my wife called him a shit-head.

He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, we didn't care. We came into town by bus. We try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired. It's important at our age. Photobucket

Oh, yes, it's nothing but busy busy busy!! I've not tried that one....haven't had time...By the time I get up, make coffee, clean teeth, put em in, get hubbys early morning pills, get pills for the two of us, roll him out of bed so I can make it, ask him what he wants for breakfast, turn on computer, get coffee, ask him what he wants for dinner, clean the litter box, decide what 'fashion' to wear, get dressed, ask him what he wants for lunch, he says...'still thinking on breakfast" then it's too late for breakfast...

It is important to keep your mind and body active, not to mention your bowels!

Don't neglect your eyesight...take this 'Chinese Eye Test'...
If you cannot decipher anything, then try pulling
the corner of your eyes as if you were Chinese.
It works ... I'm not kidding try it !!

My eyes are not that good, but I did manage to read it without pulling my eyes...guess everything is still good.....
