It is nice to be the KIDs

 Memorable car of the day:

 Yesterday the concept car was the off the road Audi, today is to be YOUR on the road Concept car...

For today:

We just walked a few blocks to see Ann and Daisy, our favorite ‘sister’ friends.  We have known their families for years. Sherry has known them longer but I met them in the late 50s/early 60s.

We talked about Bobby dropping by our house the other day for a visit and that brought up the subject of how the number of our friends decrease as we age. Now that is sorta funny, usually Sherry and I are usually the elders of the folks we are talking to, however with Ann and Daisy we are the KIDS. Daisy will be 96 soon and Ann is 94. They are both sisters are very sharp, and live together. they quit driving recently but have family near for errands, and shopping.

They both have had bouts with health problems in the past year. Daisy was in the hospital with Covid and Ann has had a terrible bout with shingles.  Both are now doing quite well. As we were leaving Ann’s son and DIL stopped by bringing a meal.

I just put this on the blog so you will try to be good so you will live long enough to be OLDER!

Take care and be safe.

How wonderful Daisy and Ann have overcome these significant health challenges! Aren't these the 'cake' ladies you mentioned a while back? Methinks they're made of stern stuff!

Ya, for more years than not I was the oldest employee; now it's nice to be comfortable smack in the middle with my church friends.

You KIDS have a nice evening!

To have survived Covid at that age is amazing! I hope my sister and I can live that long and be together..with Jack of course! Ha! We've been losing friends over the past year due to Covid and other health issues. I hope Jack's latest surgery is his final one and we can continue on the path with good health. I think it's wonderful how active you and Sherry are and frankly you're more active than many younger folks are! Take care and have a good week!
