Adventure before dementia

It Wasn't The Stork!

Mum and Dad have been telling me lies all these years - They told me that a stork brought babies to live in families.  However I received an e-mail today telling a different story ... Now I am going to be cinfused about this all day.

Daddy, how was I born?

A little boy goes to his father and asks ' Daddy, how was I born?'

The father answers, ' Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway!

Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo.

Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe.

We sneaked into a secluded room,

where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive.

As soon as I was ready to upload,

we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall,

and since it was too late to hit the delete button,

nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared that said:












‘You got Male! '

Maybe I'm Older Than I Thought!

Great day  ~  2 e-mails to pass onto you all.


An elderly Floridian called 911 on her cell phone to report that her car has been broken into. She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the dispatcher: 'They've stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator!' she cried. The dispatcher said, 'Stay calm.. An officer is on the way.' A few minutes later, the officer radios in. 'Disregard.' He says. She got in the back-seat by mistake..'

Thank You ... James!

I Have The Best Friends - Anywhere!

I was going to post a final couple of pictures from my trip to London, and still will do this evening ... But, for now, I just have to tell you about the most fantastic person.

He is the best person to know, and I know that a lot of you would agree with that statement.

If I say the phrase - F.T.W. ...Then I am sure a lot of you will know who I am talking about.

Thank you jaded_jamie  (yes, i'm sure you all guessed) for the gift - it really made me smile when I saw it - and made me more thankful than ever for the life I have - and the friends I have.

Jamie - You are For The Win !!

Adventure before dementia

366 MEME - Day 88 - Bude Shops.

Bude now has a one-way system round it, but back in the days when the town was being built, the central item was a school.  This ended up as the town theatre, and now a small shopping street, which as you can see has one or two shops, of a more specialist nature.  I bought some new sandals over the weekend, and as with all my shoes, the first thing I have to do, is take them to have a heel lift put on.  Two days before my 21st, when I was run over, I was left with a bad back - and have worn a heel lift since.  Annoying to have to pay twice for my new shoes!!   Hard to see in the light, but the cobblers is the small shop nearest to me.

With James

Why Am I A Fan?

As I said earlier to day I have some truly special friends. Last weekend I had a link to photobucket sent to me by a very special person ...[info]aa_eve_aa

They are a set of brilliant photos - mostly as they will remind me of my most recent meeting with James, but as this picture shows, they also show to any who have never met him, one of the reasons that I am a fan.


He is the only celebrity I have met, but having seen others at Collectomania in the past, I know that he concentrates on the person he is with.  You see it at a Q&A, and when you have your autograph signed, he chats to you, not just answers with yes-no replies.  At the photograph sessions he copes with dumb-struck fans, and still makes sure that they get really lovely images to take home with them.

He is a great actor, and I would love to see him as a film lead (one of the Cary Grant type screwball comedies would so work) and his singing is just so real as to make you feel that you are the one being personally seronaded.

Yes, I'm a fan, and I'm not afraid to admit to it.

Thanks, again, Eve for the lovely reminder.

And, this is a great excuse to use my favourite of the icons that  [info]kazzy_cee  made of my photographs that were taken 10 days ago.

Thank you to some very special friends ... and, again, Thank You James, as without Spike I would never have discovered LJ, and would not know such truly special people.


Not pleased.

Plots Against Seniors

I know that somedays I feel old - but 2 e-mails on the same subject today ... is someone trying to tell me something?


Seniors Are Under Attack. It has to be stopped.


We Must Stop This Immediately !

Have you noticed that stairs are getting steeper . Groceries are heavier . And, everything is farther away. Yesterday I walked to the corner and I was dumbfounded to discover how long our street had become!

And, you know, people are less considerate now, especially the young ones. They speak in whispers all the time! If you ask them to speak up they just keep repeating themselves, endlessly mouthing the same silent message until they're red in the face! What do they think I am, a lip reader?

I also think they are much younger than I was at the same age. On the other hand, people my own age are so much older than I am. I ran into an old friend the other day and she has aged so much that she didn't even recognize me.

I got to thinking about the poor dear while I was combing my hair this morning, and in doing so, I glanced at my own reflection well, REALLY NOW - even mirrors are not made the way they used to be!

Another thing, everyone drives so fast these days! You're risking life and limb if you happen to pull onto the motorway in front of them. All I can say is, their brakes must wear out awfully fast, the way I see them screech and swerve in my rear view mirror.

Clothing manufacturers are less civilized these days. Why else would they suddenly start labelling a size 10 or 12 dress as 18 or 20? Do they think no one notices? The people who make bathroom scales are pulling the same prank. Do they think I actually "believe" the number I see on that dial? HA! I would never let myself weigh that much! Just who do these people think they're fooling?

I'd like to call up someone in authority to report what's going on -- but the telephone company is in on the conspiracy too: they've printed the phone books in such small type that no one could ever find a number in there!

All I can do is pass along this warning:


Unless something drastic happens, pretty soon everyone will have to suffer these awful indignities.
