Oh, don’t we “oldies” understand your sentiments. It’s a humbling experience, and the Lord loves a humble heart:). Nicely done.

I LOVED this! I could have written it myself, but not nearly as well as you did. A couple of things made me laugh out loud and nearly squirt my coffee through my nose all over my keyboard: "explain running water to a simpleton" and "my memory doesn’t reach much past what I had for lunch".
Very funny stuff. Kudos !

This is entertaining and it makes a good point. What if our GPS systems suddenly didn't work. How many of us would be lost when having to read a map?

What an entertaining read! And it certainly resonates with another 'oldie' who loves to have a map. I hope children are still being taught to read maps and not just Google maps.
That's telling him! Another oldie here. Fun read.
This is a delight. You had me smiling from the beginning all the way to the end. Your sense of humor is delightful.

This was a really fun read. The voice was so much like what goes through my head when I am mad at someone, but your character is much better at admitting his faults that I am. :( Great job reminding us how we SHOULD take our thoughts captive once we have vented.

Well done by writing something so relatable. Kept my interest all the way to the end in a very entertaining way.
This was so much fun! You need to write a book. I'd love to read it for the humor and the wisdom. Move over, Erma Bombeck. There's a new girl in town.

I enjoyed getting inside the head of this old geezer. He's smart, funny, and wise. I could just hear him. This story held my attention and made me smile. Well done.

This made me smile throughout the entire piece, and a story I will long remember because it was so fun.

God bless~

Entertaining & instructive read, especially being a retiree, teaching a Computer Introduction course this morning.
Many of my students are grandparents or parents whose kids/grand-kids have little patience with their techno-plodding.
I was worried that the ol' geezer would hit the young punk over the head with a Bible, but he had the wisdom to refrain.
Well written.
Congratulations on ranking 11th overall. Happy Dance!
