Automobiles from another era:
It is that time of the year. My appointment is next week. It is a practice by my Doctor to have me go for my blood work a week ahead of time. Sherry goes with me as my ears.
We sat across from another older couple. People traffic was light, no one else waiting. I could tell the man was hard of hearing like myself, so I started joking with him (them) about him and I having to take our ears with us.
The young lady who took my blood was good at her job, and I told her so. She smiled big. I returned before the other guy got back. Sherry and the other wife had ENJOYED their time alone.
Sherry, “Jack, Anna here is 98 years old.” I had thought she was about our age or younger. She was one bubbly woman.
She smiled and said, “Watch this!”
She hit the floor did a push up, folded onto the floor in a Yoga position; she then half stood and took a couple more Yoga positions. I was cracking up and amazed. WE talked a little longer. Her husband had a tough time walking and I learned he was 10 years her junior.
I must tell you that lady was a breath of fresh air. I appreciate my VA, even more now that my visit there was so rewarding. Ain’t it great to meet someone who can make you smile?
As we were leaving them her final words were, “Stretch....., Stretch daily,..... that is the secret.”
I kick myself for not getting their picture. But I will look for them every time we go to the VA from now on. I do hope we get to meet them again.
