How Old Are You?

I am posting this out of my usual schedule to try out the new e-mail notification of my blog posts. Feedburner has been working well for me for quite a while, but the past two weeks it has not sent out my blog posts by e-mail. The RSS works fine, but not the e-mails. To remedy this I am trying out a new plugin for my blog — MailChimp. I hope that this will solve the problem.

Since I hate to do a blog update, for the sole purpose of trying out MailChimp, I'll post several humorous things that have coincided in my life.

Kids Meal Senior Discount

My wife and I have discovered a new favorite place to eat out. It's Culver's. Fortunately it's far enough away that we can't eat there often ... if you know what I mean.... But one thing we've discovered is that their kids' meal is just the right size for us, and it includes a free scoop of their flavor of the day. To make it even better, they give us a senior discount too! So the two of us can eat there for less than a total of $12.

Also the other day a long-time friend and reader sent me a link to a site in Switzerland where you can find out how many days old you are. What an eye opener! As if I didn't feel old enough already, getting senior discounts and all.... 🙂

If you have been receiving my blog posts by e-mail, you probably missed my posts the last two weeks. They are Poisson d'avril! and Yet More One-liner Puns.

    FWIW I don’t think I got an email from you with this. Was I supposed to?

    I think I’ve got it set so the e-mail will go out later tonight. What you got was just a test message. It helped me get things tweaked. Thanks, Donna.

    Thanks for sending the link. I try to take great care in my wordings, though I sometimes fail. Being a senior myself, I seek not to offend. 😉

    Thank you, Mr. Loach —

    As always, we enjoy your blog posts.

    Just had to try “How many days old am I?”

    Well! My new name is “Miss Methuselah”! — for I am 29,849 days old!

    I’m not far behind you at 23,196 days. Doesn’t each day seem so short, especially when viewed like this!

    I was hoping you’d say Culver’s had come to Greenville. It’s a great alternative to fast food.

    We “discovered” Culver’s up north, Marilyn, and figured we were too far south to have one in our lifetime. Imagine our delight to learn of one right in the Greenville area. It’s always been busy when we’re there. When a Bob Evans restaurant opened in Greenville, not terribly far from where Culver’s is located, it eventually went out of business because most people didn’t know what it was. A furniture store? Bob Evans had little name recognition here. Culver’s seems to be a known commodity here.

    So far we’ve been able to resist the Culvers here, but it is one of the places we treat ourselves to when we travel up north. Marilyn, it is in Greenville – well, maybe Mauldin – but it is in the area.
