I agree...my mother refused to wear polyester pants...at 8O, she said they were only for old people, and would only wear jeans and khakies!

Kat said...

Love this picture! It truly speaks that age is simply just a number and we are only as old as we feel.

This is so true, Mari! Loved the picture, as well as the quote. To grow wiser is always a choice that is up to us!

Loved the picture and the quote Mari. Those two ladies from England who stayed here with us last week are two good examples of thi. And one of them likes to say: «I don't do old!»

Now, honestly, you can't beat that photo with anything today....it's super.

You really made my day posting this, as I feel young at heart all the time and have countlessly thought of going out on the driveway and chalking up a game of hopscotch myself!
