Pondering From Mabel

imagesCAYN3F15 - CopyPondering from Mabel …..

Welcome to all my returning Mabel friends.
It’s been along time since I’ve chatted with ya’ll.

This summer was brutally hot. I spent many pleasant evenings sitting out on the front porch visiting with my neighbors.

We’re fortunate here that my Assisted Living facility has a very nice olympic sized pool.

Of course, they should have a dress code for these elderly swimmers.

I declare it isn’t pretty. Well, except for cute little Mary Lou.

You remember her, she’s married to the retired doctor Wong Cho. There isn’t an ounce of fat on that pretty little thing.

Then, there’s Harper. He’s a 6’ tall, gray haired and a former olympic swimmer from his younger days.

He’s Austrian. He says they skinny dip in his country. Good Lord, whatever are they thinkin’?

I guess I should be happy he puts a speedo on.

Maybe someone oughta tell him, he isn’t so young anymore. He has more wrinkles than a white shirt waitin’ to be pressed.

As you know, it’s Autumn and the days are getting shorter and cooler. I find it real nice to sit by the lake watching the ducks and readin’ the newspaper.

This morning, I read some funny things I thought you might like.

******* Mabel is a fictional character that I’ve created. Any similarities to persons are purely coincidental.

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 whom I am no matter what venue I choose to express it.

  3. Thanks for the laughs, Issy. Poor Harper! I think Mabel is a bit too harsh about his wrinkles. I’m sure she has more than a few herself. 🙂

  5. Mabel, those days of relaxing sharpened your mind. Maybe I should try it–relaxing, I mean!

    I love those definitions. There sure are some creative, outside-of-the-box thinkers out there. Thanks for sharing, Izzy! 🙂

    • Mabels been on a hiatus. I suppose she learned to be a more self-confident. You know, Fred, but a hrash man. She’s learning to find her voice even if it is a bit late. LOL

      I am having fun with Mabel. I have combined a few older people I and she is becoming a real character in my mind. Gosh … who knows how far she’ll go. The beauty of ones imagination. 😃

      I knew you’d love those definitions. Words are you passion. 😎
