Threshold of Geezerdom


Yesterday I applied for social security, or socialist insecurity as some call it. It was amazingly easy considering the government is involved. I did it on line in about 15 minutes. But Uncle Sam is infamous for screwing up my records so we'll see if this continues to go smoothly or if I'm headed for a great adventure.

What has this to do with John Lennon? Nothing. I believe yesterday was the anniversary of his birth and I wanted to acknowledge it.

Mine went amazingly well. The first check came just when it was supposed to and each since then.

I will also get a pension check from the DoD, so that's another worry. I haven't heard any stories of people having trouble, tho.

No problems for either Judy or me.

The Government gets a bad rap on processing Social Security. Most of my friends have filed for benefits with little or no trouble.

The government has a history of screwing up my paperwork and has caused me untold trouble. I hope this time will be an exception.
