We have had a thread about things that we no longer can or will do. Now I think it's time to talk about what we still can/will do
I can still eat an ice cream cone without getting it all over my shirt. If I have enough napkins that is.
I can drive a motor home towing a car. I can ride a bicycle. I can drive a go cart. I can water ski. I can still hit 20 or more clay pigeons in a round of skeet. I can drink a six pack of beer without peeing myself. I can tell stories that make people laugh. I can play golf. I can appreciate Stir's blog.
Happy says I can still walk the dog.
What can you still do?
I can still touch my palms to the ground without bending my knees.
Load my kayak on top of the car by myself, and get in and out of my kayak without falling out of the boat (*knocks on wood*).
I can still make the best Kahlua cake.
I just can't remember anything else.
I can take brisk walks. I can ride my bicycle for several miles. Both of these activities take me a while to get up to speed with, after vegging through a long, inactive winter.
I can be appreciated in the workplace. After a year and a half of forced retirement, I was hired, on a part time basis, by a thirty three year old boss. She solicts (and heeds) my job advice often. As for my production, I do well....I prioratize and execute better than when I was younger. I don't make anywhere near the money I used to make, but I enjoy my co-workers and the work atmosphere.
I still walk 2 miles a day.
I still laugh every day and find something to be grateful for.
I still learn new things every day.
There are some impressive lists here.
Touch your palms to the ground without bending your knees???? Wow! I never could do that.
Although. that did bring back a memory. I had polio when I was 15. I was in the Hospital Aug. Sept. and Oct. Got out on my birthday. They gave us a test in physical therapy before we were released. One of the things we were told to do was kiss our knees sitting on the gurney with our legs straight out in front. I don't think I could do that before I went in the hospital, but I sure as hell did it that day. I was motivated to go home.
Now I'm going to follow Quinn's lead. I ned to clean the RV and do laundry.
