Aging Is A Process

Aging.jpeg

This guy was a hoot on the Metro in Washington, D.C. 


His shirt says:


“With age comes oldness.”


Ah, yeah!


When he was sitting, he had his arms crossed over his chest, and I thought it said:

“With age, comes baldness.”


That too!


Getting old is not easy.


Being young is not easy either. 


But it’s really how you handle yourself during every stage and turn in life that defines who you are and what you become as an person and a creation of G-d. 


You’ve got to get up and walk the dance through thick and thin…life bring old age and oldness…what’s the alternative. 😉

Walking The Pink Carpet

Computer Bird

Only in Starbucks Florida…

Does Buddy the bird sing and dance inside the shop next to the coffee drinkers.

Here, my wife was doing some writing for the Federal Communicators Network.

And she is very serious about her writing–and don’t bug her when she’s into it.

But Buddy was a different story…

He proudly walked right over the iPad pink keyboard.

And then headed for another circuit around the table.

Picking up keys, ripping up the New York Times, hanging upside down, and playing with everyone who was only too happy to pay him attention.

When I asked Buddy if he liked Starbucks coffee, he started bopping up and down like crazy–it was hilarious.

As to my wife’s computer and writing, this was about the only thing that she would allow to disturb her. 

I was surprised she didn’t eat the bothersome bird, but even she had to laugh at his gall to step into her virtual world of writing, brands, and social media. 😉

Dancing With “The Stars”

I took this video when we stopped for a nice Italian coffee at Grand Forno Pronto on Las Olas in Florida. 


A good song pops on the speakers, and all of a sudden the waiter and waitress just start dancing it up behind the counter. 


The customers are ecstatic and egging them on.


Florida is one of those places where people just break out in fun–it’s awesome.  😉

High-Tech Dance Shoes

These shoes are called Kangoo Jumps.



They provide the high-tech bounce for dancing, running, or other exercise.



This video is from their 2014 International Festival in Florida that I had the opportunity to watch.



Amazing what the participants were able to do and the fun they had.



I’d like a pair and to be able to kick up my heels like that too. 😉
