Walkin'

It’s summer time and the living is so easy that I’m tackling a job long neglected: cleaning the garage.
Actually the chore isn’t so much cleaning as it is sorting through and letting go of parts of my life long past and not to be relived. The softball equipment had to go, for example, as we are in our upper 50s and must come to grips that we’ll never play the sport again.

A few weeks ago, I received a phone call that proved to be another underhanded attempt to sell me something, even though I have long been on the Do Not Call List. I have written about this problem several times during the past few years, and about a month ago, the Savvy Senior column in this paper described some of the sly methods telephone marketers use to get our attention.
