Teh Squeaky Wheel
Goooood morniiiiiiing, GN!
As soon as I saw today’s thread GIF, I correctly presumed Joe had posted it; cheers, sir.
Thanks for all the kind thoughts / prayers for SackO’SugarK; she’s doing much better today. Redoubled and emanating from Larryville for all Wheelizens (and those dearest to them).
Thanks for the update re Harper and David; we think of them often here at CasaK.
I guess the gerbils are getting old, Sven. At least some of us.
Having recently passed the big six-oh, I fear that’s true. And yet, Mrs. Arbuckle remains 29. What sort of witchery is this?!?
It’s interesting that when I look in teh mirror, I see an older man but not one who’s as old as I am. (Despite the fact I’ve recently taken to using a purple hair conditioner to emphasize those hairs which have turned white. Because vanity.)
But if I catch sight of myself on a security camera, I see an old bastard; wee-yurd.
OTOH, I’ve discovered my parents weren’t lying when they told me the oily skin which made my adolescence middlin’ miserable would pay dividends when I got older. (But I’m a-skeered to view that portrait up in the crawl space…)
I do hope gentle Brenda is feeling better. I faced up to 25 years of dental neglect a few years ago and I hate seeing dentists. I hope hers was as good as mine.
I’ve had a snow capped peak for some time now.
Hey Mac--hope you are feeling better this morning and doing everything your doctors are telling you to!
The old age thing is bear--I know I’m feeling it as well although I havent gone to the purple hair coloring extreme yet…maybe next week.
I went to bed last night around nine o’clock
i lost count of all the times i’ve been around the block
i stumbled to the mirror
i’m humbled to see
my long gone daddy looking back at me
i feel like a record falling off the charts
it’s getting kinda old being young at heart
Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Mac, and Sven!
Mac -- I hope you’re feeling and doing better. I also hope that Elena is not too worried about her upcoming procedure.
Getting old ain’t for sissies, that’s for sure!
Best wishes for all my gerbil friends that are going through health and surgery issues.
Speaking of getting old…when I was a youngster, I looked at a 55 y.o. like they were old. Now that I am 55, I don’t feel very old, but it seems that lately, I keep deleting selfies because I hear ya Fatwa..vanity. I was doing my lunchtime hike in the foothills around my office this week and found a gorgeous lilac bush fully bloomed and thought, I’ll just get a selfie because after all, my new Champion cool technology long sleeved hiking shirt matched the flowers so beautifully…I took about 10 pics. When I got back to my office and put on my reading glasses to see them, I deleted them all. I used to have such perfect vision too! This year, I got 150 readers and this week I had to go up to 175s. I think that 3 month hellcoldflu did some damage.
