FUN MONDAY - TURNING 80 !
has the following assignment for us this week :
Using your imagination, project into the future and tell me what you will be like as an 80-year old. Will you be someone who doesn't accept the aging process, spending all your time in the
gym and the bars, or will you be a rocking chair granny, or something in between?
As I have only 14 years left to reach this age, I don't have to use a lot of imagination. Wrinkles are there and that's it. If I will not have any serious health troubles, I will just go on like I do now.
Ageing is a philosophy of life. I would never use the sentence : "at my time" because my time is not yet over. I am still there and don't look at the roots of the flowers in my grave ! I only look back, for nice memories otherwise I prefer to look into the future and keep myself up to date. I never reject something new and even the new mobile generation which does laundry, dishwashing, ironing, emails, internet and TV that you can also use as a telephone seems very practical to me. That I use my old machines for that is a personal choice.
I will continue to travel through the world, I will take pictures and keep my blogs up, and even when I am sitting in a wheelchair I can still use my computer as my window to the world.
Laughing is the best remedy against wrinkles !
and so I would push my computer around, except I would have another hairdo. (The apple has nothing to do with the picture !)
