Comments overheard at the TORn Retirement Village Can't Post

No, we're not retiring, just a little bit of fun, sparked by a comment Garfeimao made over on Facebook Laugh

We've all reached retirement age (yes I know some of us are already there, or almost Tongue) We're sitting around drooling
reminiscing about the good ol days, what do you think is being said?

One by one they faded, and fell into shadow...

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

Back when I was your age, we only had ONE Hobbit movie, and we liked it! // [In reply to] Can't Post

 

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville
