Now that I’m Older…

Category: Current Events, Lists, Rated G

Another list of wisdom from Bro Tom Vickery. He’s my age, BTW; or is it visa versa?

Now that I’m older here’s what I’ve discovered:

1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

2. My wild oats have turned into prunes and all-bran.
