    I was sitting in my surgeon's office and this little old lady came in with a walker. She was a friendly person, chatting away to me while we waited. She asked if I was from Thunder Bay, and I said no, and told her where I was from, and that I had just moved here in July.

    With a poker straight face she asked me, 'Oh, did you move into the senior residence there?' I literally sputtered, I mean yes, the front of my hair is grey, but I've have been grey in front my whole life, and I know I wear bi-focals, but hey! my optometrist said I could fly a plane because I can see a mile away, I just can't see anything in front of me. lol

    I didn't think I looked that old!!!! LOL

    Oh, I can relate SD!! I have been asked numerous times if my kids (7 and 11) are my grandchildren. I was asked it more when they were younger...it's painful to be associated with being so much older than you feel you look!!

    Cuz we are old! The very old and the very young can pretty much "get away" with saying almost anything.

    Oh gosh... what my grandmother used to say in public. She forgot people could hear her. So many sticky moments... funny later... I still giggle about them. I'd keep thinking, just wait till Dad hears this one and I'd giggle all the way home. Oh boy. :roll: :oops:
