I have a friend who is a professor at a well known university. One day he is walking across campus and sees a very attractive undergrad. She catches his eye and comes towards him.
He is thinking “I’m so busted. She saw me checking her out. I’m gonna catch hell.”
What she says is: “Doctor so-and-so, you probably don’t recognize me, but you used to live next door to my family. when I was a little kid, you and your wife would babysit me all the time.”
ouch!

There's something that truly horrifies me about the notion I could, were I so inclined, legally sleep with someone just over a third of my age.

My eyes are going. Finding it harder to read small text and now even asks my daughters to read them to me occasionally! Also I find it harder to take my undershirts off overhead to take a shower. Not as bad as John McCain but yikes!

Anyone knows where to look for a classy, yet practical walking stick? I'm having a surgery on my arthritic big toe in the fall, so I have a perfect excuse! :)
Try looking at Burger canes' site. A South African shop, Burger is world class locale for custom made canes including their warthog tusk handle walking stick. Burger also offers sword canes
for those so inclined steel protection.

Did you know that you can buy left & right handed canes? My wife uses them as a pair. A good link is

You might try the Fashionable Canes website. I've purchased two canes from them in the past (separately); they accurately cut the canes to the length I asked for, and each arrived in perfect condition. I found their prices comparable, but it's been more than a few years since I ordered from them so that may have changed. Regardless, good luck finding the walking stick of your dreams!

When you're old enough to know who John McCain is and why he had trouble taking his undershirt off over his head.
