And today another 22.5 miles on my Schwinn 170. I’m now recording totals at 22,797.2 miles; 36,688.6 kilometers.
I think I got it wrong yesterday. I thought I was at the heel of the boot. I most definitely, after all these days on my virtual Trek, got it wrong. I still have about 250 more miles to go before I get to the heel at Leuca.
I am currently located at Strada Statale 106 Jonica, 88816 Strongoli KR, Italy. So please disregard
It certainly is funny how the aged, if I may include myself in that category, are targeted.
Last week I received a visit from a "professional-looking" gentleman at my house. His opening line was worded such that I understood that he was representing a firm which had as he implied that was associated with my business and that he was a Medicare Specialist who wanted to help me with my forth-coming transition to retirement. Ours was a pleasant conversation and he was polite but at the same time wanted to set up a follow-up appointment to discuss my forth-coming retirement needs.
Here's the kicker. I have been on long-term disability for some time due to the massive car accident I was involved in some years ago. Even though I have not been able to return to work I am still included on the books as an employee of my firm...and my retirement date is soon around the corner. I have had a number of telephone calls with my firm and various representatives concerning my retirement. The front-door caller had me, without blinking an eye.
Immediately I went online... It appears that I was a target, a patsy, an objective for his 100% commission insurance sales plan. I contacted my firm. Yes there is NO associated inter-relationship regarding my forth-coming retirement between BankersLife and my firm..
Buyer, this one, beware.
