The guy & I went to see the Senior Showcase at The State today. I would venture to say that less than 10% of the audience was under 50, but we loved it anyway. From the tap dancing woman in her late 70s to the harmonica playing man in his 80s, we were charmed & enchanted. We (or at least I) sang along with the 23-person strong ukulele group (which included my mother’s best friend & my former biology teacher) & marveled at the man playing the incredibly rich-sounding 12-string guitar. We held hands & were touched by the multiple groups that featured married couples (together 40 years! 50 years!).
Now, my dancing is sub par & my singing offends. My sole musical instrument does not even reside in my current home & I haven’t played it seriously in 15+ years. However, I am hoping I’ll figure something out, because I want to be that ready to celebrate when I’m 75.
