BUT YOU CAN LEARN TO RIDE THE WAVES.
Thanks, Jen, for noticing that my jeans are sagging. Could it possibly be that I am just a sloppy dresser? You know I have never been a fashionista. Yup, of all places to drop a few pounds, it had to be in my already flat behind. I'm not any NARROWER, just flatter. Wouldn't it have been fun to drop a few inches around the middle? It's been so many years since I have actually had a waistline. I have always been short-waisted, but now I've come to the point where the waistband of my jeans practically fits underneath my armpits. The really bad news is that I had an aunt built about like me, and as she aged, she began to look like an apple stuck on two toothpicks. Not a pretty picture. Some time back, Lon was trying to diplomatically describe my build. He said that I was short and squatty, like many members of my family. Short and SQUATTY!??? Do I come from a family of frogs??? Uh - his bad - he meant to stay short and STOCKY, which personally, I do not feel is much of an improvement. But I'll take it. I come from good strong German stock, which I think is helping me get through this health situation better than anyone expected. (Oh, gosh! After that description of myself, everyone I know will be wanting to get a look at me to see for themselves if I have turned into some kind of frog-creature person! Well, I haven't!) I hope you all know that this is all written in good fun.
ribbit . . . . . . . Darn that husband of mine! LOL
A blast from my past is coming today! Betty C. called me last night and is in Cedar Rapids. I am so excited that I get to see her for the first time in quite a while. It's hard to believe that we have known each other for almost six decades. I was just thinking about all the kids (now sextagerians - sectagerians - sexygeriaticans ?- uh, what it means to be in your sixties) with whom we went to school , and what a great bunch of people they are. However, there is one guy from our class of 1970 that I would like to give a good smack to. Has anyone see Ronnie M. lately? Darn, he still looks exactly like he did in school! No lie. He must be related to Dick Clark from Bandstand fame. Good genes, Ronnie. Seriously, he and everyone else in our class were just the nicest people you would ever want to meet. It's sure different now, with all the bullying and terrorizing going on in classrooms today.
Alec and I had a very good day yesterday. When we were out and about, we ran into dear friend, Sandi F.. It was so good to see her. She's been messaging me with good thoughts and has been incredibly encouraging. Also got to see sis-in-law Jill, which was a nice treat. So today was ALL GOOD.
Oh, I asked Alec more about his color-designating that he does on people. Cate is red, Abby is pink, and his good friend, Trevor, is blue.
NOTES; During an interview, Dick Clark who was always known as looking incredibly young for his age, said his secret was always bathing or showering in luke-warm water - never hot water. Hmmm
And since I was talking about certain body shapes, I just want to pass this bit of info along. Do you know the true reason why so many men (regardless of having a slim or chunky body shape) have rather large guts? The rib that God took out of Adam to make Eve was the very one that was supposed to hold in the stomach area.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
