Thursday, January 11, 2018 – I came across all three of these videos on Facebook today. I normally include these in my Wacky Wonderful blog but, who knows why, I wanted you all to see these here.
OLD AGE IS A GIFT
To all my friends and family who are “feeling” old or are just plain old. We are blessed and this short video says it all. Old age is a gift, embrace it, kick up your heels and have fun and even be silly (I’ve got that one down pat). Mentor those young folks who could benefit from your aged wisdom. We are called by God to do this. Young folks, listen to what your elders want to share with you. That means they care deeply.
I certainly don’t like the malfunctions that occur with older folks bodies, but I truly love being older. There’s nothing like the years of gaining wisdom, years of God changing us into His image, and the difference in our lives now that we are retired and have grandchildren!
OLD AGERS CAN ENJOY LETTING IT ALL LOOSE!
You may not know it but I like popping, locking, crumping and other hip hop dances. Every year when “So You Think You Can Dance” comes on I try to do those dances with them. I’m sure I look ridiculous but it’s so much fun! This video is not any of those but I love how the old lady is getting into it!
AT THE OPPOSITE END OF THE AGING SCALE ARE THESE PRECIOUS LITTLE BABIES. I WATCHED IT SEVERAL TIME AND LOVED IT MORE EACH TIME!
That’s it for today.
Roy had a follow up appointment with his eye specialist, Dr. Greiner, because his vision isn’t getting better like it should be one month after the cataract surgery. Dr. Greiner agreed that it should be better by now. The new lens has a wrinkle in it which should straighten out on its own. The surgery scheduled for the other eye is now cancelled and Roy will go back in February to Dr. Greiner to check the progress of the first eye then. If his vision isn’t where it should be 3 months after the surgery he’ll have the eye polished.
My two weeks of no rock painting has ended. I decided to try out some new painting techniques and even try painting art on the rocks. I painted several rocks following step by step directions and brought some of them to the doctor’s office.
While we were at the doctor’s office we saw they had a small tree with several of my smaller rocks around it!
I’m also trying out a technique called paint pouring where you pour three or four similar colors in a cup. Without stirring it with anything you move the cup around to where the paint is kind of mixed but not much. You then pour it on a clean rock and it makes really cool looking rocks. I’m going to have to do a few of these before I get it just right.
We are taking Roy out for his birthday Thursday evening with Chip’s family. I’ll share next time about the fun I know we’ll have.
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear
