Who's the young man? ;)
I was visiting mom yesterday, I love the place more and more with each visit. This weekend is gorgeous, summer has finally arrived, sunshine and warm weather. They told me everyone is outback in "the garden". I went out through what appeared to be a sitting room designed with the feel of a country lodge. Out back was an area with flowers and a vegetable garden. They had the people relaxing in the shade. How perfectly healthy is that, mentally and physically, no more being locked up like in an asylum for mom. It gives family members a sense of peace and comfort.
There is an interesting "buzz" going around about an elderly woman's son that looks really young for his age. Some of the workers on different shifts whisper to each other, "wait until you see her son, he looks like her grandson". That lucky little bas...ket who wouldn't want to stay young looking. Even better would be to feel young, I have to say that I have aged well up to now, all good things come to an end, I'm starting to slowly feel like I'm falling apart, I'm getting rusty, the warranty is up. Like some of my older cousins, I can soon look forward to having replacement parts installed.
A staff member at mom's home approaches me upon seeing me with mom, all smiles and friendly, she wants to update me about mom. She asks me, "are you her grandson"? I answer, "no I'm her son". Her eyes suddenly get really big and then a huge smile comes on her face, "oooh, I heard about you... they say wait until you see her son, he looks like her grandson... so that must be you"! Yes... why yes it is me, the incredibly young, handsome looking son who could pass as her grandson... so deal with it all you bitches in blog land! Hahaha, this is one of my happy posts. Like I said at the beginning of this post, I'm loving this new home for mom more and more all the time! :D

Well, aren't you a lucky little bas...ket! I'm so happy for you and your mom!
Now THAT'S the kind of fame to have!
News flash: getting old sucks. I recommend against it. Use lots of cosmetics and anti-aging potions to ensure you stay young.
You should not diminish yourself. It is good that your basket is lucky, but I am sure it is not so little.
It is so great that the people at your mom's new home get some outside time. What a relief for you that your mom appears to be treated so well. Is this a private home or a different government one? Why is this home so different from the last one?
YOU SEXY THING!
I needed to hear a good news story after an evening of sad stories last night.
Deedles thank you, it's such a relief to have her there. She even says things like, it's really nice in this room or this is a beautiful restaurant, so even though she is not aware that she has moved, she is noticing that something is different in a positive way.
Debra, yes lol but my sister got tired of hearing it and swears she is telling the staff I'm wearing a wig and I get botox. I said that they asked if my sister was my mother and that I told them yes, hahaha!
Lurker, yes I noticed the sucks part coming about getting older, bummer.
It's another government type home but you have to pay when you can, it's still less than totally private It's in a smaller town and there is more of a sense of community amongst the staff, also they don't separate the people so mom can interact with elderly people that are still sharp in their thinking.
Anne Marie, I'm sexy and I know it! That's from a song for the people not aware, seriously I think the staff needs glasses, I'm not that conceited.
Richard, if you mean the Alzheimer's event, welcome to my world. Anyway today is so warm out, if I didn't live beside a road, I would have worked in the garden in my underwear. Before you even think it.... mosquitoes, lots and lots of mosquitoes. :D
No doubt it is the bone scruture
Dr Spo, I have a painting of myself up in my... ummm never mind, you are not allowed to know my secret! ;)
What face cream do you use???
Oh, so you’re sexy and you know it?
Come on over and tell it to my face. I’ll be waiting here, with Maddie.
We’ll see how that goes.
What a great feeling to look young to others.
JP, you've read my blog, do you really think I use face cream?
Sixpence, I think it depends on the day I'm having, some days I'm surprised they don't think I am one of the residents!
Michael, it doesn't happen that often anymore, I'm losing my super powers to look younger.
