The inspiration for this post is a blog post by an Octogenarian. I too will shortly become an Octogenarian but, I don’t expect that to stop me from being complacent or for that matter make me more active than I am.

I have friends and relatives of around my age who are far more active and I wonder why they should be so as, I find my life of being a couch potato or rather recliner potato quite comfortable. I would rather be at home reading news papers or books and solving crossword puzzles than be traipsing around all over the place. Otherwise, what is the point of retirement?
Unlike Calvin, I am not a man of action and therefore also not interested in taking decisive action.  I would rather not be well informed and prefer to be just left alone!

What about you dear reader?
