Married 47 years -have a son & daughter both of whom are married and my daughter has given us two wonderful grandsons. I live in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada . It's a beautiful city just minutes away from the capital, Ottawa. I'm a former elementary teacher, now retired.
Quote of the Day "The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one's work seriously and taking one's self seriously. The first is imperative, the second is disastrous." – Margot Fonteyn
If I were ol' Santa, you know what I'd do; I'd dump silly gifts that are given to you, and deliver some things just inside your front door, things you have lost, but treasured before.
I'd give you back all your maidenly vigor And to go along with it a neat tiny figure. Then restore the old color that once graced your hair, Before rinses and bleaches took residence there.
I'd bring back the shape with which you were gifted, So things now suspended need not be uplifted. I'd draw in your tummy and smooth down your back Until you'd be a dream in those tight fitting slacks.
I'd remove all your wrinkles and leave just one chin, so you wouldn't spend hours rubbing grease on your skin. You'd never have flashes or queer dizzy spells and you wouldn't hear noises like ringing of bells.
No sore aching feet and no corns on your toes; no searching for spectacles when they're right on your nose. Not a shot would you take in your arm, hip or fanny from a doctor who thinks you're a nervous old granny.
You'd never have a headache, no pills would you take and no heating pad would be needed since your muscles wouldn't ache.
Yes, if I were Santa, you'd never look stupid. You'd be a cute little chick with the romance of cupid.
I'd give a lift to your heart when those wolves start to whistle and the joys of your heart would be light as a thistle. But alas! I'm not Santa, I'm simply just me; the matronliest of matrons you ever did see.
I wish I could tell you all the symptoms I've got, but I'm due at my doctor's for an estrogen shot. Even though we've grown older, this wish is sincere -
