Good one I love it. Can't stand golfI think it's a ridiculous gam It's not even a Scottish Game as it was first played or invented in Holland and started out as a winter game played on the frozen Canals.. The Scots made it what it is to-day.

An old Scotsman was watching a game of golf for the first time.

" What do you think of it ?" asked a friend.

" It looks to me, " was the reply, " like a harmless little ball chased by men too old to chase anything else."

Flora,

That's a good one. thumbs_up.gif

Oh boy, senior citizens. Not me!!!!!! I may be almost 60 and was considered a senior at 55 I certainly dont feel like it at all, well, most of the time anyway. Yes, there are times when I wake up sore and I do need glasses and I do have to shave a couple little hairs on my chinney chin chin but other than that I still go like I did when I was 40 some. I guess I should be very glad of that. I do come from good genes tho. My Grandda was 101 when he passed and Daddy is almost 88 and still goes camping on our events with us. He is slower but still strong and bright. I think it is all in how you do things, how you take care of yourself and how you look at life.
As to golf, all the more power to those of you who do it. To me it is to slow, sorry Grandda.

Ah yes golf, back in medievil times when men beat the ground with clubs they called it whitch craft!
But I like Robin Williams explination of the game much better laugh.gif

The Scots of course insist that the pipes produce music. But the point is after all not too important. For those who love them, the pipes can evoke more vividly than any other instrument, high emotion, they can inspire valor, and tell of tragic tales of battles long ago. They can call forth merriment or sentiment. It does not matter what the sound is called, those who are deaf to its merits would not understand anyway.

Friends;

I have to tell you about a mild but pleasant shock I got on thursday. As I sometime have to rely on public transport, as I don't have a car, I took the bus to the plaza. When I got on it, paid my fare, I saw that that there were no seats available, well lo and behold , this young woman got up and offered me her seat. I was a bit taken aback but recovered quickly, and being a gentleman I thank her but refused. One does not take a seat from a lady. Also I may be a senior but I ain't decrepit yet. Coming home I had a seat and after walking around the plaza for an hour or more it sure felt good.

When my best friend and I go out we kid each other about who will be Yes, ma'am first. Then when the event happens it is Ohh you got ma'am!!!!!! In the south, it is considered respected politeness to your elders.

When we were in the Dominican The animation crew when addressing me called me Papa. At first I felt insulted and thought to my self, this is like being called "Old Man". I said to the young fellow I'm not your daddy! Well he appologized and said that Papa is a title of repect in the Dominican. So then I appologized to him and thanked him for his respect.

Oh, I wasn't used to that either until I moved to New York -- there are so many latinos here that use the terms "Mami" and "Papi" all the time, everybody does it. It's about equivalent to calling someone "dearie." A friendly term you use for anyone of any age -- even in casual encounters like with a cabbie you are having a conversation with, for the duration of the cab trip.
