Pondering from Mabel – Ladies Luncheon


Grandma Rockin'

Things have been goin’ real well here at my new home at the assisted living. The newest thing to be added to the recreation center has been art and craft classes. Sue Anne is the teachers’ name. She has all kinds of talent. Just last week we were learnin’ how to paint a tree. She comes over to help each and every one of us.

imagesCAT7ESIKBless her heart she thought Mary Lou was drawing’ a short little tree. It turned out she was paintin’ a flower. Mary Lou’s married to Dr. Wong Cho. I mentioned him last time we visited. She doesn’t always understand what’s being said. Sweet lil thing … and she is little … just about 4 foot tall, always has a smile on her face and dresses real nice too.

Well, the girls and I got to talkin’ and decided we should do something real nice for Sue Anne. A fine welcome luncheon at the dining room seemed like a good idea. Sue Anne was tickled pink.

We dined on a green salad, creamy broccoli soup and steamed chicken with mashed potatoes while we sipped on sweet tea. We ate some key lime pie with our coffee and told a few jokes. I thought I’d share some of them with ya’ll.

Sue Anne told us she had a real good time. She wants us all to bring in some art and craft ideas for the next class. She told me she wouldn’t mind me teachin’ the class some time on how to knit. Bless her heart ….!!!!!

Live Well
Laugh Often
Love Much

  Fondly, Mabel     💗

Your sweetie says, ‘Let’s go upstairs
and make love,’ and you answer,
‘Pick one; I can’t do both!’

Your friends compliment you
on your new alligator shoes
and you’re barefoot.

A sexy babe catches your fancy
and your pacemaker opens the garage door,

Going braless
pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.

You don’t care where your spouse goes,
just as long as you don’t have to go along.


You are cautioned to slow down by the doctor instead of by the police

‘Getting a little action’
means you don’t need to take any fiber today.


‘Getting lucky’ means you find your car
in the parking lot.

An ‘all nighter’ means not getting up
to use the bathroom.


You’re not sure these are jokes …..!!!!

Come back to see what else I’m pondering …..
Mabel    💗

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.

  3. Wonderful commentary on aging and I’m glad you’re finding your feet in your new place.


    • Hi Jenni …
      I’ve just added this disclaimer below to my Pondering post. I should have added this from the beginning of the creation of the character. I had no idea I would write more than one post. I’ve been having fun with her.
      I’m a little tickled pink that she came across as a real person. She is a combination of many people I know; as are the others I speak about.
      Thank you for reading this and adding your very nice comment. XD
      ***** 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.
