My over the hill friends

In my 25 random things, I mentioned that I was lonely after moving to a new town. The town that I now live in has the ratio of about 85% senior citizens and the rest a bit younger. Don't get me wrong, those seniors are zipping around in their golf carts and dressing like 20 on a good day! But it also makes it challenging to have friends that are close to my age to hang with.

In the meantime, I've had three elderly ladies adopt me as their new friend. They want to "hang out" with me. One lady in particular asked for my phone number and is so wanting to take me out to lunch. She talks my ear off about her medical diagnosis and treatments so I have a feeling, that's going to be the topic at lunch as well.

As much as I love them because they are so cute, I'm also afraid of their dependency on me their "hip" friend.

Boo thinks it's great! He says that at least I'll stay out of trouble! Little does he know that where I am, trouble follows. I just hope the old ladies have enough money for bail! LOL

You seem like such a wonderful person I can see why the ladies want to adopt you as their friend. I hope I'll be able to meet you in person one day.

GIrl- Brandon is leaving on the 14th and won't be home until the 25th. I hope you will hang out with me sometime during that period. I am 37 years old, medical issue free, unless you count my PMS and emotional disorders...But we don't have to talk about them! I can't wait to see you. WIll Boo let you have a playdate with me?

Maybe you'll have some fun! One good thing you will always feel youthful around them! I lived in a retirement village with my parents for a year about 1o years ago and I love riding around in their golf cart. They were the youngest ones in there community and my mom had a hard time with it at first. There were a lot of wheel chair traffic jams :)! You'll like it give it a try! I am sure there are some others your age there!

At that age they probably plan on having a ball, no doubt they'll teach you a few tricks too.

Maybe they just want you to attract the young studs?

makes me think of the where the Bible says that the older shall teach the younger... we can always learn & we can always teach...just stay out of trouble :-)

You girls are going to shake up the town!!! I totally get why they want to hang out with you. If you get into trouble, you have to blog about it.
