It is Thursday but really Monday for me. This Working Boomer is getting ready for work tonight. The weather is rather cold outside and the wind is blowing. So I headed out dressed in my layers.
My main concern is that my car moves when it is time to take that trip to work. Therefore I just returned from the local gas station. I purchased a new ice scrapper with a brush. That was ten dollar. Then I added a can of defroster for my window shields which was five dollars. I filled my gas tank and that was another twenty-five dollars. I noticed the gas prices are up again. Why does that seem to happen at each holiday? I need to save some money for my retirement years. Is that a lost cause. I think NOT.
I just have to put on my thinking cap, get in high gear and make some cuts. Maybe I should start riding a moped. Heck yes! That would save on gasoline and I could have a little fun too! Maybe we boomers could start a trend. We could call ourselves the Oldies but Goodies Working and Rolling Moped Riders Group. There I go again with this thinking stuff but HEY when it is humorous, positive or fun, Why Not?
