Loved it, I've worked with many elderly over the years and few have this attitude, you've got to have your big girl/boy knickers on at this age and have a sense of humour.

Love it! (Expected to hate it, before I saw it.)

I've been reading a book set in an Amsterdam nursing home. "The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83-1/2 Years Old." Who would want to read a book about that?

It's gloomy and grim in places, but laugh-out-loud funny too, and really interesting for responses to challenges by the Old But Not Dead Club six of the residents form.

I decided to use hex to designate my age, therefore I am 3A years old.

If I remember correctly, you've noted in the past that you are without a sense of humor ... so that's great if it made you laugh!

I don't often laugh at things that make Americans laugh but I feel that I do have a sense of humour.

Bird, I've sent this to my e-mail correspondents, and they all love it. Now (with your permission) I'm going to post it on another cyberspace board. This is going to be a bright day for the over-65 population of my acquaintance.

E-mails are still coming in from friends of my friends about the song, which my friends sent on to them, bird. The reviews are unanimous: They are thrilled to discover it this song. One friend wants a way to show it on a big screen to the other residents of her retirement home.

Oh, how nice! Just share away! It's nice to hear that your friends are enjoying it.

You have reminded me to tell my husband to share this with his aunt ... she lives out on Lopez Island, which I believe is somewhere out in your part of the world if I'm not mistaken, and I'm pretty sure she and her friends would enjoy it too.

I'm glad you shared it!

Yes, Lopez is out there in the Sound west of Whidbey (where I live). It's fun to take a ferry ride through the islands out there.
