Pondering from Mabel


Grandma Rockin'

Mabel says ….
I have some Retired Health Messages I’ve been ‘Pondering’

As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, I realized that there are a few things that don’t make sense to me.

For example –

1. If walking is good for your health then why isn’t the postman immortal? I’ve never seen an old postman. Have you?

2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish and drinks lots of water but is still fat. Is it a slow metabolism?

3. A rabbit runs and hops all day and only lives 15 years. A tortoise doesn’t run and, mostly, does nothing; yet, lives to 150 years old. It must be those naps he’s been taking that are helping him live longer.

I think it’s the tortoise life for me.

Come back and see what else I’ll be ponderings …..

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. hi Issy,
    you know I’m a retired armchair philosopher and you really made my day with
    1. A rabbit runs and hops all day and only lives 15 years.
    2. A tortoise doesn’t run and, mostly, does nothing; yet, lives to 150 years old.


  2. Great observations! I read a study about reversing heart disease using a combination of low-fat vegan diet, moderate exercise, and meditation. Everyone (all males–I know!) in the study either stopped their heart disease or reversed it except for one man. He died. He was an exercise fanatic and refused to meditate. He actually died on a rowing machine. Rowing.

    You would never find my corpse on a rowing machine unless I tripped over it or someone put it there as a joke! 😉
