Which year??

I was talking to some friends the other day. These are people that I know through my daughter, Little D. They are the Mums of her classmates.

We were just talking about school, Junior colleges, etc. Suddenly, I asked - "so which year were you from?" (I was of course referring to the year she left school).

One of the Mums said: "19xx".

My immediate response was: "Hey, that makes you 2 years older than me!"
(As all along I thot I was the oldest Mum in the class).

She turned and looked at me in disbelief, and said: "That's my year of birth!"

Oooops! Looks like when I left school, she was still in diapers! And I was right about being the oldest Mum around that group. Must learn to keep my mouth shut, or I will be giving away my age!

Hi Lady, came across your blog, took a wrong turning somewhere. Nice blog and interesting posting.

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.
Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

And this much I will say, a matured woman will beat hands down any 19 year old. Or 28 year old...she has that kind of matured sensuality younger girls haven't learned yet, *wink*.

Have a smile always, keep a song in your heart and you'll never age, best regards, Lee.

ps, Brandy when aged becomes an XO.
Champagne becomes Cuvee. And they don't come cheap. Why? Its the best.
