My Senior Moment!

Yesterday I was invited to go bowling with my Dad's seniors club. First we had a lovely buffet lunch at the cafe on the airforce base. Everyone was really interested in hearing about my life in Albania and the challenges we face living in such an unusual place. I sort of felt like I was on a 'speaking tour'!
After lunch we went to the bowling alley, where we divided up into 4 teams. Everyone wanted me on their team but I warned them that I was quite an uncoordinated bowler. I surprised myself and did quite well. Today however, the front of my thighs are stiff and sore, while my parenst seem to have survived without a pain. Mom said she actually felt better than before bowling!
I had a chat with one lady who seemed to be the oldest one there- I'd say she might be 90. She was dressed in the sweetest pair of embroidered blue jeans with a perfectly matching t-shirt and printed denim jacket. Even her shoes and earrings were the right colours. I told her she looked so pretty and she replied "I might be old, but I still love being fashionable!" I hope I feel that way when I am 90.

Don't you just love being around seniors! I worked in assisted living for 2 years and had a blast!
