I Guess I AM 203 In Dog Years

I want to know who the wiseass was that put my name on this mailing list.

My AARP card came in the mail today.


Think they'll believe me if I write: "I'm only 29, try back in 21 years!" and mail it back?

I'm making good progress on Tomato--both the sweater and the live ones.

I'm about to start the neck modifications (so the neck doesn't show off too much cleave). I love how fast these top down sweaters go.

I had to stake my real tomatoes today. I used some old steak knives (duller than hell and why I didn't Freecycle them when we moved I'll never know) and some kitchen cotton to secure them. Only fitting since they are steak tomatoes.

They sent me an offer that got to my house two days before my 13th birthday. Something tells me their system isn't all that great.

Hubby also got an offer last year before his birthday. I still tease him.

I say keep it. They offer good insurance. You never know.

I had a similar experience to Carina...I think I was maybe 11...their database is maybe a bit whacked.

AARP! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I'm laughing with you. Really!

Hey, if you keep the card, does that mean you can get discounts on stuff? ;)

I got mine the day I turned 18 mailed to my college mail box. Umm I had only been on campus for a few days, how did they find me?

And even more confusing: how did the local vet know that there was a cat at our apartment and mailed a welcome note to me. No one besides the landlord knows that he belongs to me. Creepy.

I think you can legitimately join when you are 55, so you are closer than you think ;) Of course, I'm even closer than that, so I am keeping my trap shut...

I'm with Jo. I'm not saying a word.

I got some Ty Dye cotton this weekend for a start on another top down since I had to rip my Tomato. I can't wait to see progress photos of all your Toms...

I want to see a progress shot of your Tomato!

And, that AARP thing is funny because I have told my husband all along that I married him for the AARP benefits. He is a bit older than me.

Hey, they more or less sign up kids for the SATs when they're born these days, so why not? Come to think of it, I better get my act together... I'm turning 31!

People and their databases. I've so tried to get off certain politcal party generated databases for years and years. It's hopeless and I get tired of writing the nasty letters and making the nasty phone calls. I get mail from Greenpeace and the NRA and everything in between. It comes from being a party switcher. I recycle a ton of mail paper.
Some of those AARP benefits are worth joining. Maybe you can get a prescription discount card. ;-)

My mom got mad at my Dad for signing up for the AARP card until she learned about the discounts...

AARP. Lol I love it!

I thoroughly enjoy the corp credit card offers I get in the mail for my business. Umm and what business would that be? Domestic Engineer? Cheif Kid Wrangler? Those jobs don't pay jack, pal! lol

LOL!!!! Well you know what they say, 29 is the new 65. =P

AARP! Hee! Keep it and see if you can get a discount at some store. Then kick up a fuss when they don't accept your AARP card.... And I demand to see the "steaked" tomatoes. If that doesn't qualify as blog-fodder, I don't know what does!

If it makes you feel any better I got mine back in 2000. And man can I tell you that old people get some good deals. I got coupons for buy one get one free on airline tickets, restaurants and all kinds of stuff. Too bad they were so early, but it does give you something to look forward to.

I got one a long time ago too. Maybe they are wondering just how many times you've been 29... that's so funny!
