“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer your life any direction you choose.”

Dr. Seuss

In Ohio, after age 60, you can attend any State University free. You don’t receive any credit, the goal is to have fun. I retired on a Friday and the following Tuesday, armed with a new box of crayons and a Snoopy lunch box, I got on the school bus.

Forty years ago when I started college we used typewriters. Computers were as big as a house. Cell phones were unheard of. Amazingly, the biggest change I noticed was not technology. It was me. I couldn’t wait to get started. What happened to the kid who hated school, got spanked in every grade, and barely graduated from high school?

I registered for two classes; Creative Writing and The History of TV and Film Comedy. Shouldn’t it be against the law to have this much fun! Acting, painting, drawing…I’m still taking classes.

Whoever said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks was wrong. Just ask me.
