    Good on you, Joy. At our age, you takes ‘em where you gets ’em.
    In addition to arthritis, there’s the indignities. Good lookin’ young wimmen are friendly now because they’ve figured out we’re harmless. People stand up when we enter a room, not because of respect but to get ready to either get out of the way or catch us if we fall. If something smells, they always look at us. And they talk out loud about us, assuming—correctly—that we can’t hear them. Then there’s always the permanent change to black slacks. (If you can’t figger that one out, you’re not old enough.) At least we get to have supper at 4:30.

    Yes, Joy…. very flattering…. she probably started receiving that kind of flattery when she was 37, and looked 56.

    “Oh, your granddaughter is so cute. That’ll be 25 cents for a senior coffee.”

    "That’s my daughter! "

    “Oh, I’m so sorry. That’ll be $1 for the coffee.”

    “What was I thinking? I mean she’s my granddaughter, of course. Here’s the 25 cents.”

    Many years ago I took my 2 year old grandson to Kroger’s to show him off. Saw another guy about my age with his grandson. I said, “Good looking grandson you have there,” fishing for the return compliment. It. Wasn’t. His. Grandson. To quote our esteemed Governor, “Oops!”
    Poor boob had dumped his first wife, believing he had worn her out. So here he was, having paid for braces, college, weddings, etc with first family, gave first wife half his money and now has yet another round of braces, college and weddings to pay for in addition to new house and jewelry, etc for second wife.
    If first wife was truly worn out, he could have had her completely overhauled for 1/10th the cost and half the kids! And people wouldn’t be laughing at him behind his back.

    Sr discount at Golden Choral is a free drink. That makes sense since the Sr’’s eat a lot more than the younger teens. My mom then 89 asked for a kids price she got it . Only had 1 piece of chicken and a sweet potato 8 yr old ate his money worth and more. The pennies should pay twice as much. What they eat there and what they take home in their purses.

    I went out with a friend of mine and the young lady at the movie automatically gave us the Senior discount when we bought tickets. I asked her why and she said anyone with gray hair had to be a senior. lol (I didn’t have gray hair but my friend did). I know several folks that turned gray in their 20’s and my son is mostly gray and he is not yet 40. Can’t judge a book by the cover, or in this case the age by the gray.

    Looks like the travel decal says: “Oblando”. That would be appropriate. That bag looks too small for a normal Penny motel raining party. The oversize duffel is probably inside. They’ll wait in their room for a housekeeper cart to stray down the hall and wait for the housekeeper to go into a room and then pounce! Bye bye soap, lotion, shampoo and the dozens of shower caps for Burl!
    It’s 5 O’Clock in Dublin…..time for a big glass and a wee glass. Slainte. Enjoy the day!

    I also had many friends (especially of Italian heritage) who were grey in their 20s. My man thinks he looks younger this way and I don’t mind it even though I LOVE shining grey hair (and the dye stains the sheets).

    While I was away at college my parents moved. Several months later when I returned to visit I discovered rather quickly that my mother had neglected to tell people that she had a third and older daughter! Made me laugh!
