Aarp Aarp

I hate to admit this but I am an AARP member. Now that isn't of my own choosing! When the time came and they sent me an application in the mail, I just let it sit there and decided to pass on joining.

But Julie.. she couldn't wait to join! When her time finally came round, she eagerly sent in her membership application. With me as a co-applicant.

I told her that there weren't any appreciable benefits to joining but nevertheless she sent a check and not too long after that we became official members! So how have we taken advantage of our memberships so far?

We haven't. Like I said, there isn't anything there worth using. Your mileage may vary, of course, as I am referring only to us. If you are an AAA member you get the same discounts as do AARP members. The only thing we get is their monthly magazine, same as we get Westways from the Auto Club.

I refuse to look at the AARP magazine, though, as every time I do it makes me feel old.

I guess I am getting pretty crusty, heh heh..

Unrelated note: I ran across this review of the soon-to-be-released Beatles box sets of their remastered albums, both the stereo and mono versions. They sound like winners! I guess that helps justify the preorder..
