Philosophy in Many Forms

There is a mantra (and an acronym) used in the Army when field operations are being planned.  It is "KISS."  It means, "Keep It Simple, Stupid."

In keeping with that mantra, I recall some philosophy my grandpa Charlie Carter gave me.  He said that when he was about 62-63 years old he went to the doctor and said that he was getting "stiff in the joints."

The doctor smiled and said, "Well, stay out of those joints."

Simple philosophy.
