~.>___ . WORDS TO LIVE BY . ___<.~

As we get older we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to "make a  difference" in the world. It is at these times that our hopes are  boosted by the remarkable achievements of other "seniors" who have  found the courage to take on challenges that would make many of us wither.


Harold T. Schamburgh, retired chemist and philosopher
Retired chemist, Harold T. Schamburgh, is just such a person. We are grateful to Mr. Schamburgh for sharing these uniquely inspiring words with us:

"I've often been asked, 'What do you do now that you're retired?' Well, I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background, and one of the things I enjoy most is converting Beer, Wine, Rum, Gin, Vodka, Bourbon and Brandy into urine. It's rewarding, purifying, satisfying and edifying. I do it every day and really enjoy it."

    I sincerely hope you will consider attending AA Meetings before your retirement, sir.

    Despite having giggled a bit, I seriously question the wisdom of Mr. FreeThinke's having published such a post.

    Isn't there too much in the world already that encourages the worst in us to come out and thumb it's nose at Virtue?

  3. I think a bigger problem is too many prigs with sticks stuck up their butts so far it's jamming up their funny bone

  4. Oh, please! For Heaven's sake! It was JUST a silly JOKE.

    Doesn't anybody have a sense of humor anymore?

    GEESH!
