K = kerflooey…


Have you had days when everything has gone

I have but it has been awhile so I know
K2016erflooey day is due.

Most of my K2016erflooey days happen at work.
It usually starts first thing…even before I get to work.
I hit the snooze button too often and then I have to rush.
I hate rushed mornings!
Mornings are meant to be peaceful beginnings.

Then at work…it almost always starts with the computer.
Maybe you don’t know but computers are K2016erflooey generators.
Then someone calls with bad news that I have to relay;
something is out of stock, discontinued, the order
was not received or shipped to the wrong place.
Someone needs information that will take hours
to compile and they need it now.
Of course, that news makes the computer go K2016erflooey.
Then I forget to stop at the store for cat food on my way home
or I remember the cat food and forget the people food.
I get home and the elevator isn’t working
so it’s nine flights of stairs to walk up.
I want a relaxing bath and there is no hot water.
I get in my jammies and head for bed to find
that some cat has coughed up a hairball on my pillow.
Ready for sweet dreams and I can’t sleep because of all
the K2016erflooey that happened.
The next morning I go for a walk and
all the K2016erflooey stuff is forgotten.
All is right in my world again.

That’s my post for the letter

Posted in attitude, In Other Words (Quotes), old age, someone said

Old is as old does…

“There’s nothing I can do about it.”
Jeralean Talley
Her reply when asked about her secret for living to be 116 years old.

I have to agree with Ms Talley, there is nothing we can do about getting older.
Tomorrow I will be a day older than I am today
and on my birthday next year I will be a year older than I was was this year.
Nothing I can do about it except to die and I have no plans for that just yet.
If something happens and I do die there’s nothing I can do about that either.

Anyway, like I said, I agree with old Jeralean,
but I do think we can choose not to be “old”.


It doesn’t matter how old we get we can choose to enjoy
where we are, what we are doing, and maybe for the first time, who we are.
We can choose to tell corny jokes and play poker,
laugh at ourselves and cry watching sad movies,
do crossword puzzles and play computer games.
We can be outspoken and a bit outrageous,
comfortable wearing what we want fashionable or not,
say no to what we don’t like or want, take long naps.
and not feel guilty about doing nothing but daydreaming.

 It doesn’t matter how old we get even if we live to be over 100
we can live and love, happy with our memories and making new ones.
We can share our wisdom with young people
and learn new things from them..

Age is just a number and after awhile you can just make up a number.
Who’s to argue with you?
I mean, maybe Ms Talley is really 118
