After I turned 50 things began to get a little bit strange

I am older now. Aren't we all?

I started getting letters in the mail from persons unknown.

Out of curiosity of course, I opened the letter I received yesterday and it was a cremation service.

Okay, they think I am about to kick the bucket and need to make arrangements for my burial, or rather my being turned into carbon molecules.

Then today, of all things, I got a phone call, not a robocall but there was a real live person on the line. What they started saying was, "I am Joe Mackinsmack and I represent House Takers Inc. I am interested in buying your home." - I replied, "I am not interested in selling it" - and hung up the phone. Goodness gracious, great balls of fire. They think I am about to leave the land of the living and think I no longer have need of a house to occupy for myself.

So, if you find yourself getting past 50 or past 60 or even older than Father Time, you can expect things like this to happen and more. So, it's best to have a thick skin and a good sense of humor.

I imagine the next thing that will happen will be some email telling me I was recently awarded 150,000.00 dollars from the Gates foundation. Give me a break.

Hahaha... I laugh, but know what you mean. In Blackwood, NJ, there was an old age home across the street from a cemetery with a gravestone business (or was it an undertaker?) next door. I'd say that was a disgrace.

There's always some con artist who will try to get what belongs to others!
