this old girl


I had a blast last night! I danced with all the marines, and a few times we cleared the floor when we were swinging. This old girl still has it!
There is a WWII veteran that I always kiss when I see him. Years ago this man said to me "I love to be kissed by beautiful girls", so I kiss him. Last night I asked this man to dance with me. He just smiled and we went to the dance floor. I said " tell me about your wedding day." This gentlemen said "that was a long time ago, my bride was beautiful and we had a full military honors wedding. We danced to bugle boy of company b." I love talking to older people because they have so many stories to tell, if people would just take the time to ask them about their life.
Right now Rusty and Jake are cooking breakfast and it smells so good! I put in a request for french toast, so I am sitting here and getting hungrier and hungrier by the minute.
Life is good. I have a husband who loves me, all of my children are here, a house full of animals and marines. What more could a women want?

You know you have no idea what a blessing that you were. I hope when I am older someone is that kind to me. In the meantime, I'll sow it so it'll come back around.

It sounds like such a wonderful time and great memories made by everyone.

Breakfast being cooked for you! You deserve it.

I deal with a lot of old people in my job. I consider them "living antiques". They are full of valuable information, history, wisdom, experience... I just adore old people!

Glad you're home and happy!

I'm glad to know you are home and getting back into the swing of things. I've been lurking around, reading your posts and not commenting. Just thought I'd let you know I'm here. Blessings, Penny

Good for you for getting out to dance! And for entertaining an older man.
