How to Feel Really Young:

Have lunch with Aunti Fern, age almost 100; Aunt Naomi, age 103; and Naomi's sister, age 97.

(No photo. My camera is in the shop.)

Yep, I can see that would work!!

DesLily said...

It would take AT LEAST that to make me feel young! LOL..

Rurality said...

That works in more ways than one... if your aunts are that age, you must have good long-lasting dna! :)

Heather said...

I once had a 106 year old man flirt with me. I don't know if it made me feel young or old! :-)

Karmyn R said...

And I bet they still called you "Kid".

Kaycie said...

I bet they called you a young whippersnapper!

Desert Songbird said...

Yup, that would do it.

Tammy said...

Oh, wish I could see a picture of them all!
I hope you're having them tell you tons of stories...they are living history! (You can tell I'm a history buff!) ;)

storyteller said...

Sounds like a WONDERFUL plan! I'd love to see photos too ;--)

You're just a squirt in their eyes!!! I once had a octagenarian tell me after I dyed my hair dark brown (it turned out black) that I was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. I was in the grocery store. i really had a lot of compliments about that hair color. It was quite remarkable! ha ha

karisma said...

Wow! Imagine all the changes they have seen! Makes me sound like a baby still!

susan said...

Wow, you come from a line of long-living women! I bet that was an interesting lunch.

ChrisB said...

Wow I bet they are amazing ladies with lots of stories to tell.

Kila said...

LOL!

Whew, with those genes, you have many years of blogging left! ;)

That's awesome. My two great Aunts are in their 100's too. My Grandpa, their baby brother, just took my family to go see them way deep in West Texas. They still live side by side in the small town they grew up in. They have lived as neighbors all their lives since marriage.

Sandy said...

All of that longevity in your genes! How awesome is that?

swamp elf said...

Everything is "relative"...pun intended.

Shelby said...

Oh I want to have lunch with your gals. Not just for feelin' young, but for the friendships.

How I crave my friendships. You have been and will forever remain a treasured blog friend.

You ladies keep it under 100, OK?

wendster said...

If genes are a predictor of the age you will achieve ... you are looking good.
Well ... you always look good.

Debbie said...

LOL Yes, that WOULD work.
And wonderful lunch that would be! Plenty of good stories, I imagine.

m (the misanthrope) said...

Wow! You have some longevity in your DNA, I would say! Hooray hooray! That sounds like a neat lunch.

I love the stories you have told about Aunty Fern (I am not sure if you have written about Aunty Naomi or if I have missed them). I know I feel younger when I spend time with older people. Unfortunately I usually feel old because I hang with teens and they are a constant reminder of how uncool I am (and apparently not too bright either):-).
