When you hit middle age you really only have two choices: you can get fat and lazy until you roll over and die, or you can can get off your ass and do something, like maybe ride a bike.
I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Yesterday, as I was walking through the greenhouse after opening up for the garden cashiers, I saw some pink flowers over where they don't belong. The area is listed for tropicals but is mostly cacti. Being the inquisitive sort, I had to investigate. These were normal flowering plants, I could tell that, and there were a multitude of small, pink buds and flowers. To my surprise, they were Jade Plants. You know? Little fat leaves. I had no idea they ever flowered. But these two were in full bloom.
So I went to our plant guy and told him how amazing this is, to have jade plants blooming. And he said, with a broad smile, "Yes, aren't they just beautiful."
