If you're over 30 you'll want to read this, maybe even if you're not.

Saturday, August 04, 2012

I bought a Vogue magazine this morning. There was an article about a 101 year old woman. She said she had taught a class in Jewish humor. Here is one of her--apparently true--stories.
The mother of a famous daughter was being interviewed. The interviewer said, "You're very young looking, how old are you."
The woman said, "I'm 48."
The interviewer said, "But your daughter is 52."
She answered, "Well, she leads her life; I lead mine." emoticon

So, on my next birthday, I'll be 50. You might say, but your daughter is 45. And I will say,
"Well, she leads her life, and I lead mine."

I'm not going to leave my Over 60 team, though. They won't mind having a 50-year-old member.

    Hi EatVegan,

Your entry took me back about fifty years.

I was a little kid and we were on the way to visit Grandma. I asked my mother "How old are you?" She said "Nineteen". Later at dinner, she said in answer to someone else' question, "I got my license when I was twenty-five." I jumped in with "But you said you're nineteen. You lied." That happened in the early 1960s. Laws have changed since then, but my face still hurts when I remember that slap.

    Now I understand your comment on your Spark page. I wasn't sure if someone was picking on you or what. You are too cute! (Or I am just that slow!)

By the way, I hope you didn't mind receiving a turkey goodie. I forgot you're vegan. I'll make it up to you, I'll send you some broccoli for Christmas ( Unless, of course, you're Jewish then I'll try again for the New Year ).

I enjoyed that; however, I choose to continue to claim "29 & Holding!" emoticon

God bless!

    Now, I believe you should ADD ten years...cause I look great for a 62 year old...not so good for a 42 year old....

    Okay, Janet, we now can change the team name to "Saying we're 50, with 100 or more pounds to lose". Very cute story!! My sister always lied about her age. Then her boys were in their early 20's and knew that their mom was NOT in her early 30's.
See, I never lie about my age. I will be turning 42 in Oct. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!. Thanks, Janet! (hugs) Noel emoticon

Baby of the team. lol

    Janet, so you're really the new 50 now!! How awesome and fun that is. Age is just a # and it depends on if a person is young at heart or not. I enjoyed reading this. . .

    Very funny. I won't leave the team either. Even though I get taken for under 60 regularly. Have to show my ID at stores when I request senior discount. Don't bother me. I could be telling that story for my oldest daughter is 52.
Take it easy. It's going to be very hot in Salem today,
Stay positive.
