“You’re as old as you feel...think young”
Happy New Year again! New Year’s and Christmas are my favorite times of the year. Thirty-eight members of my family were here and one was absent, because of illness. We also had seven guests. It was so exciting! I always invariably come down with the “vapors” when it is over because of the wear and tear. The “vapors” are just exactly what it implies -- it isn’t catching and there is no cure, except rest.
Another year means I am another year older, that is good, considering the alternative. It means that I don’t have a set bedtime, or why thaw when I can eat out, or your secrets are safe with me because I can’t remember them; and my old clothes are back in style!
Old age means decaffeinated cappuccino (yummy); Paul Newman is my contemporary; I can binge if I want to; bell-bottoms are gone for good; saving the bone to make soup; saving sacks, I might need them; and the collected works of Cary Grant.
Something to ponder is that Harry Truman was elected to the Senate at the age of 50. Great bonuses come at the end of your life, such as knowing your grandchildren and when they have children, your great-grandchildren. Enjoying new and old friends, exciting adventures (even if it is just watching great television). It is amazing how times have changed. We used to eat dinner at home and go out to a movie. Now, we go out to dinner and come home for a movie or to take a trip to the uttermost parts of the world from your living room sofa. Be sure you marvel at the wonder that comes with each new day.
They say you are as old as you feel, so feel and think young. Take care of yourself, eat right, sleep enough, and be absolutely sure to take your selenium every day so you won’t have cancer. Try it, you will be glad you did.
On that note, have a Happy new Year and a prosperous one!
