No Retiring For The Weary

September 13, 2009

Well, we made it through one night. One more night and we're off till Friday. It's a shame we have to work. I really do enjoy staying at home. After working all my life, it's seems so nice to have leisurely days and nights. Well, they really aren't too leisurely. Something is always happening to liven up our days and nights. Bottom line though, it's nice to be home.

I really must share some delightful news from this weekend's newspaper. The article was about the huge number of people still working in their 70's, 80's and 90's. They wrote about this one particular lady who has finally quit working at the age of 92. She started out as a secretary 67 years ago, and just kept on working. Another lady is 85 and works at a senior center. She has no plans to quit working in the near future.

But the one that really makes me smile the most is the 101 year old woman who still works at her job at a newspaper. She works half days, and is said to be America's oldest worker. God bless these lovely ladies. I take my hat off to them.

I'd like to share something that a friend sent to me a few days ago. It is the second such article I have received lately about animals helping each other. It always amazes me how children and animals just hop right in and help each other without ever thinking of how it may affect them. They see a friend in need, and they just do what they can to help.

This one is about Cashew, a 14 year old Lab who is blind and deaf, and her friend Libby, a 7 year old cat. Libby stays right next to Cashew and acts as her eyes and ears. Now tell me honestly, how many people do you know that will do this, and for no other reason than just because they were needed?
Moving right along, I think it's time for another freebie. Today, I have for you a mini kit that I made for a color challenge. This one is called "Travel Along." I hope you can use it. That's it for today. I want to play a bit with Tootsie before I have my nap. Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
