Should I dance or sit down and cry...??

“You’re older today than yesterday but younger than tomorrow"
 
NEW YEAR'S EVE, 2016
is my 79th birthday...

I am sure I will DANCE...
crying makes me look really ugly...
my nose runs....
and I get the hiccups every single time..





Besides,
dancing  is  a  lot  more  fun....💘

and....
that's really MY shadow dancing there...
notice my little bitty waist...

and my long long hair

and my hoop earrings and short skirt...
with boots...

oh, yeah, baby !


 “Don’t get all weird about getting older!
 Our age is merely the number of years the world has been enjoying us!”

Age is just mind over matter...
If you don't mind..
it doesn't matter... 

My wonderful family is taking me to have Mexican food today...
I love love love Mexican food...
but I surely love my family so much more.

I'll be back tomorrow with photos of us celebrating this 
LAST YEAR IN MY 70'S....
WOW...
oh, yes...
dancing is much better than crying...
besides...
I have nothing to cry about and plenty to dance for.


Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it don't matter. Satchel Paige

  10. Oh, Honey!! If anybody's going to DANCE this New Year's Eve, it should be YOU!

    The picture is absolutely YOU---high-stepping and shaking and moving to the music. I think you actually HEAR a music given to few, with all your happy activities and boundless love of adventure and the next wonderful thing to see or do or taste and share. You live in LIVING COLOUR---all those reds and brights simply pale against the force of living that you embody every day---such enthusiasm and zest and happy embrace of so much that others miss.

    I love coming here to see all the BRIGHTS and the doings and then fun, but mostly just for a dose of the joie de vivre that just springs off your page. I've already had a LOT of coffee this morning, and still can't muster the proper words to describe such energy and happy generosity of spirit---Girl, you DO Beat ALL.

    Happy, Happy Birthday, and Happy New Year from WAY up here in the Heartland.

    Now, go get those BOOTS on!

  25. BJ, lots of people live well into their 100's, so we have lots of years to go before we need to start worrying. Enjoy the dancing tonight, and the Mexican food, and let tomorrow take care of itself! Happy Birthday and Happy New Year. You're doubly blessed tonight.

  26. Dance away dear one. Age is what we make of it. Some days I feel 90 and other days I feel like I am still a teenager. Enjoy your evening with the family. Happy New Year.

    God bless.
