You know I just thought about our average ages here, well I'm just 65. anyone else as honest me?
My father died at 52 (heart attack) and every year I think when's my turn! Moms 82 so I'm beginning to think??? What's your take on this? Should I even be thinking about my demise or should I think longevity?
I have reached the ripe age of 67. Have outlived both parents...My mother died in 1971 at 52 and my Dad in 1978 at 62. And I have to admit that lately with all this mess of hospitals and serious conditions I slipped into a thought of "time is up...any minute now I'll move on to Annwen. Even got busy and put my affairs in order. But today that is a thought better left by the roadside. I have always tried to live my lilfe..for today, cause yesterday was a canceled check and tomorrow was only a promise note. I am truly blessed when I wake up each morning.
I went out to lunch with my friend yesterday, (me 68) and she walked my feet off, cannot do that sort of walking anymore due to my arthritis, she really makes me feel feeble and she is tall slim and 86 next month, but a lovely lady.
I also have out lived my parents, dad died in 1973 aged 72 and Mum died in 1997 aged 76. on my Mums side of the family all seem to the us when they are 76.
Well, my Friends I am 66 just turned and Some days are great and other days, I'm still hanging in here..Want you all too too! I know Ms. Doris is fighting and we want to keep up with her. Dorothy, we just got to enjoy what we got while we can. Huh??? Jon. ???
Love you all....
I'd think. Poor old thing lucky to be still going. But I went out and pulled out a Lantana this afternoon and I am wore out!!!!
Those boys are growing Jon, I know you are proud of them too....
Hugs and puppy nuzzles , my friends....
Oh, well if everyone is confessing I will too. I will be 78 in Dec. and finding out I just can't do all the things I want to do. My mom was 3 months short of her 100th birthday when she passed away. I make big plans on what I want to do each day, but for some reason there is just no energy to do them. And then I take on the care of a new puppy who would rather pee and poop in the house!!
I am hoping that I will follow my late dad's side of the family, as seem to leave this world in their late 80's / 90's, my dad's youngest brother is still with us and he is 84. my Nanny was just over 94 when she left us, dad's side.
Off to finish prepping dinner, and get into oven.
Well here I am still going, both my parents were in their 90s when they passed so I think I have a few years in me yet, but it does get harder every year, But my cat Bandit keeps me going, he is such a loving cat, and always know when there is something wrong
T-Bo is a darling. My Mandy is so loving, but once I get her to know the rules about peeing and pooping we will get along a lot better. She plays a lot with Sami now and they chase each other around the yard. That wears both of them out so they are both napping. Will take her in for her 3rd set of shots on the 30th, then it will almost be time to talk about spaying and taking care of that hernia. I've got a few dollars saved toward that, but wish I knew how much more I have to save. There goes my computer & camera fund.
Another cool day so did get a green waste barrel filled up. Maybe I'll get another one filled by Thursday evening. We had just a little rain during the night, but always not enough to make the plants happy.
