Over The Hill... or Is Life Just Getting Better?

I hate getting older.  Looking back on one’s life can bring a tear.  It’s over.  Yesterday.  Oh, don’t mind me.  I had one of those déjà vu moments coming home from the fair tonight.  I saw my son at 1…  his first time at the fair… with huge blue eyes gazing upon the bigness and brightness in wonder.  Wasn’t that just yesterday?  

Ok. So he was there with me tonight as well.  But isn’t he thirtyish now?  And isn’t that HIS SON laughing and wolfing down pizza and funnel cake as his big bright blue eyes dance with excitement?  

And isn’t that my daughter with her daughter as well? 
Oh, let’s not go there.  Let’s just enjoy the time.

These chic's were being welcomed into the world by me and a little girl as we waited for that last egg to hatch repeating over and over again.... "They're so cute!!"

God knew what he was doing when He blessed me with grandchildren.

Two of my favorite things.  

These ones were talking to Rissie... 
 and yes, she was talking back.

Now that I'm older, I've become bolder. 
 I did get in trouble for taking a
 picture of Snake Woman.
I want to become an undercover reporter...  now that I've revealed Snake Woman's secret.  

Maybe getting older isn't as bad as I thought it would be.


  1. Good gawd, that's not even a "good" prank. And they take people's money for that?!! Good work irritating her! ;)

    I can only imagine what you're going through. I feel like it all went too fast, and my little guy is only 10. I just wanna go back and do it again with him, that's all. He SO doesn't get that.

  2. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog!! I know about getting older too. I'll be 62 in september.We can't stop the clock, and all my wrinkles....Kathy

  3. Love that you broke the rules and got that picture of snake woman! Girl, the Grandkids are the gift we get for making it through raising our kids! So glad I found you...come visit GrannyMountain often!

  4. Now that I've passed the 40 mark I can empathize with what you so eloquently described. I've never been one to shy away from stating my age, but now that milestones are passing and I'm at the point of what some call "middle aged" and reflection comes into play so much more. The woulda, coulda, shoulda's pop up now and again...but like you said, there is more of a boldness now than ever before...more confidence in the real me and less weight given to what others think...getting older isn't so bad, huh? (:


  5. This woman is all she seems to be.She continues to be my hope and inspiration for a future filled with promise.I love you Bobbi with all my heart.

  6. Thank you for the kind words husband! I love you too.
