Old people and Love songs
Robin Williams once joined the Bronco Cheer leaders as a spoof.
We, Sherry & I are at the age that our friends are spending more time at the Doctor’s office than walking or shooting the breeze with old classmates. Some friends on canes and using walkers. One of Shirl’s comments when it seemed that youngsters did not understand old folks slow walk or unsure driving was: “I want you to know I wasn’t born this old.”
I would have to remind her back when we were teens and young men and women we did not understand the aged no more than they do today. Age is something you must experience to understand it (then it ain’t guaranteed! LOL)
I read this on ‘The Packardman’s blog’ today:
100 years ago only the rich had cars and the poor had horses.
Now everyone has a car and only the rich have horses.
WOW, how the stables have turned.
We have a new pastor. We took him and his wife out to dinner tonight. We had a good time. (I was just brown-nosing for a better seat on the next bus out!)
Not really, he is a great kid, not 60 yet! His wife is very pretty and sweet. We are proud to have them aboard. He was our associate pastor for a few years, so we knew him. I had been promising him a meal at the best steak house in this area, “The Woodshed” up in Stanley,NC. I finally followed thru.
I just wanted you to know we are not too old to double date. Since Sherry reached the 80 mark she is a little frisky but She was good and kept her hands to herself on the date, with the pastor along.
Tonight as we do many times we cuddled a little and I started one of the old love songs and she joined in.
Oh, my heart skips a beat when we walk down the street
I feel a trembling in my knees
And just to know you're mine until the end of time
Makes my heart skip a beat
Well, I did a double take the day I met you
My heart turned a flip as I stood next to you
And I knew right there I never could forget you
For you are my every dream come true.
Funny that, I wonder if there are love songs now that kids will remember when they are old. Old Buck Owens sang that, he wasn’t my favorite singer, but I loved the words because that is how I felt as a 16 year old when I dated Sherry!
