    Get involved ...do something

    Yesterday my daughter e-mailed me, again, asking why I didn't do something useful with my time. "Like sitting around the pool, drinking wine isn't a good thing?" I asked.

    Talking about my “doing something useful” seems to be her favorite topic of conversation.

    She is "only thinking of me," she said, and suggested, I go down to the Senior Center and hang out with the fellas. So, I did and when I got home, decided to play a prank on her.

    I sent her an e-mail saying that I had joined the Senior Parachute Club.

    She replied, "Are you nuts? You're 86-years-old and now you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"

    I told her that I even had a Membership Card and e-mailed a copy to her.

    Immediately, she telephoned me and yelled, "Good grief, Dad, where are your glasses?!

    This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."

    "Oh man, am I in trouble," I said, "I signed up for five jumps a week!"

    The line went dead.

    Life as a Senior Citizen isn't getting any easier, but sometimes it can be fun.
