Never Too OLD To Learn

How many times have I heard and said that statement??MANY !!!Well, when it comes right down to yourself that is a different story. I barely know how to send and read my e-mails-- now my daughter is really wanting me to stretch my brain---but they say keeping your brain busy is helpful with preventing Alzheimers---so maybe she is trying to help me--ha!! So I guess I will learn how to do this --just do not know what to write--I have a very simple, plain, boring life.
One thing I do on a regular basis is spend, usually every Sat.(or as many as I can, depending on my work schedule) with my oldest sister(LaVoice).We have been doing this since her husband died a few years ago. Since she does not work, I have put her in the position of our Social Director---it is her job to find entertainment or places to go, and things for us to do. I think we have eaten in every restaurant and tea room in the Ft.Worth/Arlington area and most we will not be going back to --we have our favorites now--we had trouble finding ones we liked and I got worried for a while because I thought we might have to stay home and start cooking and that would be scary---I guess we can still boil water.(?) We do not do anything that is earth shaking but we enjoy being together and that is all that matters. Growing up I did not spend that much time with her since I was the baby and a "pest" --I guess--But now we are enjoying our time together--now she realizes how precious I am. HA!
Life is short and ours is getting shorter, so I treasure our times together. Our other sister, Joyce lives in Mississippi --- we have always been close and loved each other and been there for each other and we always will be---I love them dearly. What would we do without family?
Well, until the next brain storm--have a good day and enjoy life, it does not last long.

Write from your heart about anything you feel like. Your blog will not be graded or supervised. It's like a diary and people love to read "diaries". I'm proud of you and your sister and all of us who get a little nervous about this new thing called Blogging. But a year from now you will be amazed what you have done and it will be a gift to your children.

You'll enjoy this, I call it my literary memory bank. I can actually type in my search box a keyword and it takes me right to a certain topic I wrote about.
It's fun when you go back a year and read about things you wrote about. Welcome Patsy
