My Birthday Wonder!

1. Voluntary Simplicity

Dear daughter Elysha,

Wow! In addition to the little lap desk that you’re going to give me (I’m just testing it in advance right now), Rita and I went shopping yesterday and got me a nice used electric razor and a used pair of running shoes at Thrift Stores.

You may ask why used stuff is so wonder-ful. An important part of wonder is surprise. Anybody can buy a new razor for $40 or new running shoes for $60. But what a surprise to find size 13 for $5! Or a nice electric razor marked down from $5 to $2! All it took was a little persistence and the willingness to visit a couple of local non-profit thrifts instead of driving to a big box store.

And I get Medicare. 65 is great!

Hope you’re having as much fun as I am. I’m doing important stuff too.

Please Like my new Facebook page. And follow me at Twitter. Kind of skimpy right now but I’m building them.

Love ya,
