Thursday, thoughts…

It’s weird
being the same age
as old people.
(I don’t know who said this but I agree.)

I have been officially old for some time
But I don’t think of myself as old
I think I am in my prime
But now behold
Another birthday bell did chime
How many times won’t be told!

  1. I never think of myself as old as I am ( 80 in October) It’s all in living positively and happily and that is easy with my sweetheart and our Lucy! Cheers!

  2. Happy Birthday! Age is a lot about purrspective. Our veterinarian told The Human that they don’t refer to cats of a certain age as “geriatric”, they now call them “super seniors”. I think you humans should take the same approach!

  3. I’m 70 and feel 30 most of the time. I know people that are 40 and feel and act old. I know people my age that are very old in their minds. We’re doing it right.

    I linked this post to Feline Friday.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Patricia.

    1. I feel younger than my years most of the time. When I don’t, I take a walk, then a nap. 😸
      Thank you for doing a link.

  4. Happy Birthday Patricia. Did Teddy throw you a party? I hope so. Cooked at least,,,tuna casserole…fish cakes?

    I try not to let age deter me. I had to accept a few things like, I’m not pretty anymore. That may sound haughty, but I’ve been in a business where I was my own product. I refuse any enhancing, so I’ve concentrated on health and peace of mind instead.

    Age is just a number…how often have we heard that, but ya know…it’s true.

    Celebrate. You’re very, very special as your gifted prose has taught us. Your pal, Susannah

  5. You hit the nail in the head! I agree I never feel as old as people my ageπŸ˜‚. πŸ₯³πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ

  6. Last week I was thinking that I am the age that my mother was in her last months of life. She had given up driving years before. She had always been young for her age but her illness made her old. I don’t think of myself as old but dang I am. I have more energy than she did but she had severe asthma which sucks your energy. I stayed more physical than she did although other than her lungs and heart, she was in great shape. She had all her original parts as she used to like to brag.
