It’s been real nice down by the lake now that Spring is around the corner. The swans are swimming ‘round in circles, dancing to the sound of the waterfall. They keep this assisted living facility real nice for us folks.
Just yesterday, Bubba came by when I was watchin’ them and told me he liked watching the swans too. “It’s real peaceful”, he said. I told you about Bubba last time we visited. He’s taken a likin’ to me. Bless his heart. I enjoy talking to him but my Fred has my heart and I still miss him.
We talked about ole crabby George. He was taken from his place a few days after our Valentine’s Day dance. Looks like he had prostrate cancer. We wondered why he’d gotten so thin. He was a grumpy ole codger. Didn’t like talkin’ to folks. He made a fuss about everything. But, no reason to talk ill of the dead. We both figured he might be happier now. Well, enough of that sad talk.
Bubba’s a funny guy. He’s always tellin’ me jokes. I thought you might like hearin’ one. Here goes:
~~~~~~~~ There’s an Aid’s Warning out ~~~~~~~~
To all of you approaching 55 years or older – this is a warning for you
Seniors are the leading carriers of AIDS!!!
most of all Monetary Aids for their kids.
Not forgetting HIV …. Hair is Vanishing!!!
And finally, the most dreadful Aids : Acute Income Deficiency Syndrome
Wasn’t that funny? I love seein’ my friends here at the assisted living home smilin’.
Heck, if we can’t laugh at ourselves than we’re really old farts. Tell someone a joke from time to time. It makes the day go better when we can see ourselves in a humorous way.
Come back and see what else I’m pondering …..
Live Life, Mabel
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Life is too short to be anything but happy.
***** Mabel is a character I’ve developed for the purpose of writing about life
with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor from a seniors citizens point of view.
