Mabel says ….
I have some things I’ve been ‘Pondering’ …
1. Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?
I guess that’s why many people pick out the clothes they want to be buried in. I notice serviceman like to wear their uniforms. Assuming you’re going to heaven, is there a need for security there?
2. Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune? I was confused while singing it in the shower one day. Yes, I sing in the shower.
Why did you just try singing the two songs above?
3. Why do doctors leave the room while you change? I know as we age we can be a frightening sight. But, aren’t they going to see you naked anyway???
4. Why is it that people say they ‘slept like a baby’ when babies wake up like every two hours? I notice sleeping isn’t what it used to be. I’m awake more. Am I turning into a baby again?
You know, now that I’m older. . . Time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.
Come back and see what else Mabel’s been ponderings …
***** FICTION – Mabel is a character I’ve created from the experiences I’ve encountered with many elderly people who live in the Sunshine State of Florida.

Great ponderings and questions well worth asking. I love the questions about heaven. Maybe people who were tailors and dressmakers on earth set up business there. 🙂

By the time we get to heaven it’s time to lay back and float on a cloud. I’m sure we would have earned it by then. ~~~~ : – )

Mabel is quite an astute observer… 🙂
September 2, 2013 at 8:23 pm

Mabel’s a character … she’s a little feisty. ~~~ : – )
September 2, 2013 at 6:32 pm
haha you got me singing twinkle and the abcs…. still trying to figure it out. Oh my twisted noodle is tired, but I certainly love yours! 🙂
September 3, 2013 at 12:47 pm
Twisted and fun … life’s medicine. ~~~ : – )
September 2, 2013 at 2:46 pm
Oh, I can’t ponder now…too many new questions pop up. 😆
Now I am stuck with that song in my head. You’re funny Mabel! 😀
September 3, 2013 at 12:48 pm
The song is the one that gets me too.
Why is it that some songs do that?
I’ll have to ask Mabel. ~~~~ : – )
September 3, 2013 at 8:20 pm
Yeah, tell Mabel earworms are terrible and she must give us a fix for that. 😆
September 2, 2013 at 1:32 pm

September 3, 2013 at 12:46 pm
You will … she’s got lots of questions. ~~~ : – )
September 2, 2013 at 8:14 am
This was so much fun! Thanks 🙂

Keeping the prickly humor of the elderly alive.
September 2, 2013 at 5:49 am
Mabel rocks ! 🙂
September 2, 2013 at 12:04 pm
I’m glad you’re enjoying her, Gilly.
She is prickly and wry on purpose.
Happy September ….!!!!! xo

Yes, time is passing more quickly than ever before.
This is darling even while it makes it point. Well done, Isadora.
September 2, 2013 at 12:03 pm
Mabel is a fun post I have been doing. She reminds me of all the
elderly people I am friends with. They have a dry and prickly attitude
that is humorous.
Time is fleeting and moves faster that we’d wish.
Happy September …..!!!!!
September 1, 2013 at 6:11 pm
Time is always catching us unaware, isn’t it?!
Happy September, my dear Isadora.
September 2, 2013 at 12:00 pm
They say as you age one day is equal to two. ~~~ : – )
Yes … it’s September and the year is also hard running by quickly.
September 1, 2013 at 2:29 pm
Great post! I also have wondered about the “slept like a baby” saying…and yes I did just sing Twinkle, Twinkle and my ABC’s!
September 2, 2013 at 11:59 am
That one question seems to get everyone singing. hahaha
Glad you enjoyed Mabel …
September 3, 2013 at 2:20 pm
Yes, I sang it, too–but in my head. Does that count? 😉
