SENIOR TO OPEN ADVICE CENTER IN DOWNTOWN BRIDGEPORT

HOPING TO HELP MILLENNIALS AND GEN Xers COPE WITH THE EVER CHANGING WORLD, EIGHTY YEAR OLD IS SET TO SELL "FREE" ADVICE.....

BRIDGEPORT, MN

Sy Burr in his first selfie
Sy Burr, 80, of rural Bridgeport has given away a ton of free advice over the past 20 years, mostly to family and close friends. "I'm kind of the "Dear Abby" of the family," Burr told OFF THE WALL NEWS.  "My great granddaughter told me I should stop giving it away and open up a shop, so that's what I'm gonna do."

Sy Burr has traveled far and wide, high and low in his eighty years. He's lived with Pygmies, has been married three times to women from three different continents, fathering assorted children, worked as a gigolo, was an ordained minister, and for a while, a tour guide at the Great Pyramid of Giza .
In his 30s he was an avid sperm donor before learning to fly fixed wing airplanes, was a boxing coach, a carnival barker, a professional rodeo clown, and a singing coach for cloistered nuns.  His 40s saw him playing back-up guitar with the Rolling Stones and writing songs for the Beatles, walking from coast to coast bare footed, operating a yodeling school, and helping Aunt Jemima create the perfect pancake flour.
Sue Burr, professional dancer
His 50s and 60s found him slowing down a bit as he worked undercover for Scotland Yard before swimming the Amazon River from one end to the other and back again. Hitting age 75 found him marrying his forth wife Sue, whom he met in a dance hall in Reno. "Although the age difference may have some people whispering," he said, " She's the first woman to dance the limbo lower than me and besides that, her grand dad and I are old pool hustlers!"

BURR'S ADVICE CENTER, will be located on 711 Lucky St. and be open from noon to three daily.  Cost of advice will vary depending on its importance. He will also dispense free advice from time to time to those that will listen. His free advice to this reporter was, never eat yellow snow. It will be well taken.
