For Your Consideration

Image result for depends for men

God has a sense of humor 

You’ve reach a certain age.

 The beginning of cruise control. 

Life is easier, the world isn’t coming apart and if it is, whatever!  

No rugrats, no teenagers professing their hate for you !

No braces, no tuition, no late night calls for money. 

Dinner when ever we want. 

Cruises, Vacations, a Sports car if we choose

I’ts our time dammit! 

Grey Power, Yeah

The other side of that freedom is aches and pains. 

Before 50, you never glanced at adult diapers, they’re for other people with kidney and urinary issues  

Then one day it happens,……. 


For years, you could ignore it for hours, but today its deathcom  7

The Dam Breaks!

Your life changes from that day forward, your aware of restrooms, you plan ahead. 

You start noticing adult diapers.

Then one day, when your alone in the aisle you pick up the package and start thinking about it. 

My friend Dan (not his real name-I think) turned 50 last November . Last week, he drove from is beautiful home in Folsom (I think) in his Grey 2019 Honda Accord  CA-plate 7SHQ121 to the Wal Mart in Dixon, Ca (45 minutes from his home-HMM!) and purchased a pack or Depends.  I saw the diapers sticking out of a Wal Mart bag with the receipt in the bag and teased him about it.  He said, he recently experienced a  major break and is considering wearing the diapers during a long outing  or in the case of an emergency.

I promised never to speak on it.

And I haven’t!

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
