Lately, the people around me have been saying that I am a grumpy old man. So I decided what the heck, maybe I am. So I decided to create this blog to let everybody know what goes on in the head and body that contributes to grumpy old men or Curmudgeons.
I originally decided on the title Grumpy Old Man, but my Dr. said it was not original enough and suggested ‘Curmudgeon’. I added ‘Geriatric’.
Of course, you should always do what the Doctor says…..
