Photo Hunters - Happy



I dread the thought of growing old, it's not a happy one. Recently, I'm slowly losing my memory and perky breasts, I can't seem to remember things that I have done a moment ago. Not that my hubby is complaining. He's having fun, twice every session. *wink*


I came across these senior citizens doing a country dance one Sunday evening. There were actually more than a hundred of them. They looked young and happy. They were so cool in their hip attire! Everyone was having great fun!!!

At a community event, these senior citizens dressed in their colourful Peranakan costumes, sang and danced for us. They made the other elderly folks from various homes happy.

Even when you are old, you can be funny HAPPY!!

    Seriously, my bad. I should have posted up a notice or something about downloading Smiley Central. Please uninstall Smiley Central toolbar. It's not good for your PC's health.

    There is a much better way to post smiley on your post. Follow this thread in a local forum. LcF showed a much better way. See the useful informations @ Recovery Smiley in a post!

  79. I feel a bit ashamed. this my first visit to your great blog.

    Do not think about age - think about happiness - as you so well have presented here.

    btw - In Norway we have a tradtion: Not one single x-mas cake - But 7. Yes we need to have seven different sorts - all dry.

    You can find out more about Nordic x-mas trads here:
    http://toraa.blogspot.com/2006_12_01_archive.html

    scroll down to see when we did the backery. It's allways fun and a great tradition. Did you know that in December - we see the Sun for only a couple of houres in Southern Norway, while in the North - they have no glimpse at the Sun - And during the Summer - Midnight Sun in the North - and here in the South: 3:40 am to 11:45 pm.

  80. Sorry to hear about your perkiness, the only problem with older people though is they tend to smell a bit more of w@@e

    Cheers Mark

  81. Well, growing old must mean doubled, or tripled or hundred of happiness wrinkles, won't it? *giggles*

    ReplyDelete

  91. Great photos! Old?? Who you callin' old!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Nice post and one which brings a smile to my face. Of course, I am not exactly old but as I approach the 40s, I can sense that the energy level and killer instincts in me are fast dissipating.... I read recently in a newspaper report somewhere that contrary to popular belief, older folks do have sex quite regularly too. Here we are talking about folks in their 50s to 70s.

    Cheers to the rollin' good times. Who says sex is only for teenagers?

    ReplyDelete
  93. Great photos, the last one made me smile! Hope all is well with your ankle.
