Friday's Feast #156

Appetizer:
Describe your laundry routine. Do you have a certain day when you do it all, or do you just wash whatever you need for the next day?
I wait until I have no 'favorites' left and then I breakdown and do it all!

Not my cat-random internet photo!
Soup:
In your opinion, what age will you be when you’ll consider yourself to truly be old?
Depends, sometimes I feel old even though I'm not right now. I guess I'll consider myself old when I'm about 65-70

Old lady or young lady?
Salad:
What is one of your goals? Is it short-term, long-term, or both?
Short Term-to lose any amount of weight before I leave on my trip. Long Term-to buy my own house!

Main Course:
Name something unbelievable you’ve seen or read lately.
I heard on the radio this morning, a business in S. Carolina (I think) was overcharging the Pentagon (or some gvt. agency) on shipping for tiny $1.80 nuts and bolts to be shipped various places and had gotten away with it for like the past 6 years and they just discovered she ripped us off for about $20,000,000!!! Apparently there was a loophole in the system for items being shipped to war zones. The system never questioned the amounts and automatically paid whatever was on the invoice. They have discovered there were more than one business doing this. They are going to try to auction off the items purchased with the laundered money to recoup some of it. The lady pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 40 years.

Dessert:
On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how happy are you today?
I'd say about an 8!

I am 60 and I am not old yet. In my head I feel 19 it is the body that lets the game away.
