Delightfully Delusional


Yesterday marked my 29,220 day on terra firma . . . it’s weird being the same age as old people! 😊

My younger, ever-patient spouse, who has tread this planet a mere 25,553 days, consoled me by baking a scrumptious Hummingbird birthday cake (pure manna!), and giving me a shiny, new coffee percolator to ensure the caffeine shot required to jump start my ticker each morning is delivered.  

However, the ultimate age defying technique to prolong youth is RAP . . . not the Snoop Dog rapper form of chanted, rhythmic, street vernacular music ???, but Ole Freddy’s delusional form of Reciprocal Age Perspective.

It’s simple . . . instead of logically attempting to fit 80 candles on a cake and risk setting the house on fire, I become dyslexically delusional, convincing myself I’m 8! . . . can’t wait until next year when I’m 18 again . . . Ellen’s hair just turned 2 shades grayer 😊

Smile 😊😊😊, and  . . .

Time Warp


Last evening 4 senior citizens stepped back in time at a drive-in movie theater . . . a Blast from the Past!

Rated PG 13 and accompanied by 3 responsible adults, this 13-year-old held hostage in an 80-year-old body vicariously became a Top Gun F-14 pilot defending our country from an impending nuclear disaster.

It’s been said, “Growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional.” . . . just call me Maverick 😊

Water Sports – Then and Now


In Yester-Years water sports consisted of high energy, adrenaline charged high-diving, water-skiing, scuba-diving, etc. In Latter-Years water sports have gradually consolidated into a more relaxed, less strenuous venue of tranquil water-watching. Here’s a couple pics of how it’s done by a couple of ‘ole’ folks

The good news . . . while I’m older today than I ever was before, I’m younger today than I’ll ever be again

The really Good News . . .

Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and will carry you; I will  and rescue you.” – Isaiah 46:4
