Now that I am in my 50's, I thought I could come up with old man tips to help others who could use suggestions to help make their life easier.

Old man tip #1
I unsure if you need to urinate before going to bed?  Turn on the hot water tap and let it run with your non-brushing teeth hand under it while you brush.  As the water heats up, you will know if you need to go before you're done brushing!  XD

I dont think anyone likes waking up in the middle of the night to have to go.

I wake up to go at least twice per night. I do what you do at bedtime though. My electric toothbrush runs on a  2 minute cycle, so I take care of business while brushing, saving time and plus I'm relaxed

If you enjoy your coffee save up for a decent bean to cup machine and then find some fresh coffee beans that you like.

We splashed out on a machine a few months ago and it's been the best thing I've purchased for some time.

You can experiment with different coffee beans and it's lots of fun trying new flavours (some not so much)

I personally like the Lavazza beans and there seems to be so many different types of Arabica and Robusta blends. Still I'm pretty new to this so lots more to try.

Of course you don't need a bean to cup machine, you can get the same or similar results using different cheaper methods but I like the ease of this machine.

Before this I would drink mostly instant coffee which was good just not great. For me that's the difference.

Try not to have anything too strong after 3pm as it may keep you awake. Higher Robusta content the more caffeine I think.

I like a mixture of 70% Arabica and 30% Robusta but of course your taste may well be different to mine.

You deserve it! (most of you) haha

Enjoy

Old man tip #2

Get a hearing aid!!!  Use it as an excuse for not hearing your wife/husband rather than getting busted for not listening to her/him.   XD

**raises hand**

Very common in married couples to not hear or listen to your partner. If I'm in the other room and get called it isn't really loud, so I can choose to temporarily ignore if I'm busy. I do have trouble with people's voices though, I can hear the volume ok but sometimes can't understand what they're saying. I turn on closed captioning for some TV shows, especially if there's a lot of music or background noise, or I won't have a clue what's being said.

It's not real bad at this point, but out of curiosity I researched hearing aids. Not covered by insurance and insanely expensive. If my hearing gets a lot worse over the years, I may have to look again. In the meantime if someone says something to me I didn't catch, I just smile and nod. :rofl:

That has gotten me in a world of trouble before! lol Still it's a good idea just the same.....you at least have a possibility of succeeding.  It was just the worst situation ever for me to nod, smile, shake my head yes and say "that's great!'

I have trouble with certain tones. I can hear that something is being said, I just can't make out what it was. Unless of course, I'm looking at their faces and can read their lips. i can't stand it when people start to talk to me and turn their backs or worse yet, leave the room. :headlbash:

Old man Tip #3
Always notice your wife's hair and shoes...give compliments on either or both.  She will like the compliments....

P.S.
do not make the compliments right after she gets out of bed.  Bed head and fuzzy slippers are never compliment worthy in her eyes XD

True, true, true!!!! Trust me she will take it as 'He used to think I was beautiful.' My hair looked like a frayed q-tip, I had on old hospital scrubs as pajamas, 2 different colored socks & probably a missing eyebrow when this happened to me. Please listen to LouczarGStudy!!!!!!!!!!!
