Please folks, I’m not ready YET!

Tonight is Sherry’s 55th HS reunion. could it be?

Well I have reached the magic point where half my e-mails are for ‘The best Senior Care Facilities available’,

One of the best retirement homes

(Looks like a good retirement home!)

Or this:


e-mail for: Your motorized wheel chair at ‘NO COST’. YOU are going to have a lot of fun too, the best ‘Motorized Scooters’, get around in your senior years!

scooter old folks

E-mails for law suits: Hip Replacement? Join the lawsuit against the ‘Whammie junk joint’, millions awaiting you. YOU deserve it.


E-mails for my health: “Live longer, drink Lemon Juice!” Do you remember the ‘Jogging in a Jug’?, Vinegar was the answer to old age and bad joints.

I have noticed every year there is an e-mail concerning a different fruit. This year it was the Strawberry, it cures anything. last year it was the banana, it does everything from clean your colon to shine your shoes. Let me warn you about the shoes, it only makes them smell! Yep, I tried that one on my old work shoes.


It is amazing with the new technology how they know you have reached the golden years and target you for everything imaginable that they think an older person may want. Today, again, I had two from Canadian Pharmacies. That one I hear is good, at least the idea of buying from Canada is good because of the cost. We are not on any expensive medications at the moment, but many are.


I got a few chuckles from Chuck when he talked about giving driving lessons for the motorized scooters, to the old ladies in the nursing home. They even went out for ice cream together. There was something else interesting about Chuck. He had a cyber girl friend in another nursing home thousands of miles away. They knew they would never see each other, but I could tell he really loved her, from afar. I thought that was unique.

(this is a combo of walker and seat when you get tired)

One day I might need the motorized scooter, and I think they are great for those who need them, keeps them mobile, but for right now I just click ‘delete’.

I do try to eat healthy. I heard my sons talking last year. Jack said to Mark, ‘remember when me, you and mama would have our ice cream at night, and dad would be eating an apple or carrot? maybe we should have done that’.


(Of course at our house it was vanilla with chocolate syrup)

That was not always so, I ate about as much ice cream as the rest, plus the fruit and veggies. But after awhile I did get to where I preferred sherbet. I went from Orange to Pineapple for a long time. I just switched back, now there is a container of orange in the refer.

(As slow as my system is tonight, I will take any flavor of icecream or sherbet that will download!)

Thanks for reading this stuff.

I did not make myself clear on my blog entry, I have resigned myself that I cannot appear before an audience to teach and entertain. And yes, I do have hobbies I hope to always enjoy, Sherry is my favorite!LOL

Hollywood Squares, from the past TV Show:

Q. In Hawaiian, does it take more than three words to say 'I Love You'?

A. Vincent Price: No, you can say it with a pineapple and a twenty..

Q. What are 'Do It,' 'I Can Help,' and 'I Can't Get Enough'?

A. George Gobel: I don't know, but it's coming from the next apartment.

This is a 1951 Studebaker (bullet nose), we joked , “is it coming or going?”

51 stud

But now? I think it is beautiful.

Good entry! John got a card about cremation last week and he wasn't too happy about it. They (who ever they is) sure do know our ages.

Fred Alton said...

They're just like my deceased brother-in-law who worked for years in the bank used to say, "I'm just looking out for your interest!" That's why they send you all those notices - cause they want to "help" you unburden yourself of one of the biggest encumbrances of! ☻ Ha. I'm with you all the way.

Tell Mark to hold on to the Golf Cart. We can
use that. We have an elderly man in our neighborhood that uses his riding lawn mower with a flag on the back to do his visiting.
We can take turns using the Golf Cart to go shopping. We all need to know when to hang it up. I have resign my singing career with the band.

how fun with Sherry's 55th HS reunion! I hope you guys had a great time! She can't possibly be that old can she?? For the longest of times we got invites in the mail to join AARP. Now I get a lot of emails for single services. What is up with that LOL :)

the secret indeed is in healthy eating and exercise and trusting in the good Lord!

I don't even think of you or S as 55 yet, let alone going to a 55th reunion.

An apple or a carrot. I don't have that sort of will...well, not always. ~Mary

Getting older is not a joke for sure. We who can still go on our own steam and do not have to take those expensive medications are very blessed indeed. It's getting to the point now that I see people younger than myself worse off. I'm not sure if that is a plus for me or a minus for them. Glad you all got to go to that reunion. I've not been to any of mine in years. Hope you enjoy your Sunday!

Rose said...

Next year will be my 50th Class Reunion! Yikes, where did all the years go.

I remember that Studebaker! I think one of my brother's owned one.

Hugs, Rose
P.S. That combo walker is a good idea.

Don't feel too bad, my 20 year old daughter got a letter from AARP Friday...ha. As of last night, we have arrived in the great state of Alabama. Take care, love from L.A. (lower Alabama) Sheila
