So you know exactly what I mean. The 99 year old used to be a teacher. I visit her and she choses books to lend to me. The first time it happened .... when I took the book back - she asked me questions on it. Good job I really had read it. The 94 year old worked in Elstree Film Studios when she was younger. She showed me lots of photos of herself and she was a real beauty. Actors obviously liked her .... so many pictures taken with them. I love hearing stories from the past.
Bingo playing at 100!!!!!!!!!! Brilliant.
OMG, I know! I also live in a retirement community and there are many who are decades older than I who LOVE to tell stories about the good old days. But you're right, they can be very interesting and I'm mindful that it's probably how I sound to my grandkids. ! My mother lived to be 100 and she was still entertaining us right to the end. The evening before she passed she'd played Bingo and won 3 games. :)
LOL!!! I'm surrounded by people like that 89 year old. They home in on me. I live in a complex that's for retired people, nobody under 60 is allowed. There are 31 privately owned homes and we have a lady who is 103 years old. On May the 4th I'm going to a birthday party for a lady who will be 99 and the following day .... another lady will be 94. I have to allow about 30mins to get out of the place. These oldies hardly leave the complex and the highlight of their day seems to be nabbing me on my way out ..... or home. I'm not complaining. Some of them have very interesting stories to tell from when they were young. The trouble is .... when you've heard it 27 times already .... it's a bit difficult to show the same enthusiasm as the first time of hearing. LOL!!!!!
Easter, schmeaster, the super market was crowded. I HATE shopping of all kinds. (I guess I'm a disgrace to my sex but I even hate clothes shopping.) I managed to attract the attention of an old man who wanted me to guess how old he was !! He told me he was 89 and of course, I said he certainly didn't look it (he did), and that was all he needed to be my friend for life. Took me some time to get loose and do my shopping but at least I made someone happy. :D
Now everything's put away and I'm glued to the couch - sofa- futon for the duration. Happy what's left of Easter!
LOLOL!!! I'm darned sure ex is still wondering about that!!! Shopping??? It's Easter. All the eggs should be safely gathered in by now. :D
Okay, I've been sitting here for 2 hours talking about fountains and sofas and mysterious sea creatures.....just waiting for someone to volunteer to go grocery shopping for me, and no one has!!!!! So fine, I'll do it myself. :(
Got it! I think you-know-who is still wondering about my questioning him. LOL
I think it's just the thrill of the hunt. :D
I know you're just waiting to see one again!!!!! :))
You don't think it's another one of those things from last year????? LOLOLOL!!!!!!
Oh no!!!! It's gone all blurry.......what are they trying to hide? :)
I have no idea what the natural color my hair is ...... LOL!!!!!
Too right, MD.......I never had gray hair before that experience! LOL
Hi stargzr ....... it took me ages to get over that traumatic experience. LOL!!!!!!
Beware, people! Dangerous things lurk off that shore. :o
Don't worry....NO chance of that! :D
All I ask is that you don't let your ex know he was right!!!!! :D
