    I agree-I'm a senior myself, but I'm still fascinated by the adventures many others have had. Even my younger neighbor-who has lived in Alaska, Hawaii, & was raised on a working cattle ranch-love hearing her stories.

Some of those old dudes and chicks have lived some amazing lives!!
    Hey, not all seniors are "little old" couples. I'm 6'1", 205 pounds with a 36 inch waist, and Mrs. Face is 5'11" and 160 - both former bodybuilders. We all ain't "little"...

    When I think of seniors and Christmas, I think of my late mother-in-law. She was very very sick, and Mrs. Face was staying with her in Colorado Springs, and she insisted on buying me a Christmas present - the only one she bought. She died three days before Christmas...

    Hopefully AlexS you'll grow old....getting old ain't so bad considering the alternatives......I'm mean, after all, nobody lives forever, and at the end, I'm sure it's but a wink of the eye......

    The old guy saw something in you....you should be flattered....

    Merry Christmas....

    Great story, I love seniors!

    When I worked at a Ramada Hotel at the front desk, I met a lot of people from all over the world. I had to work the night of my 18th Birthday, a lovely senior couple from Minnesota had just checked in to the hotel and we were chatting back and forth about restuarants to go to.
    The couple asked me how old I was and I said I turn 18 today! They were upset that I was working on my Birthday... Anyways, I called a taxi for them and sent them to a nice resturant in town.

    Well, when they came back, they brought me back a lovely cake from the resturant, sang "Happy Birthday" to me and lit a candle! I came to tears, it was so thoughtful of them! Felt like they were family to me! For surely the best guests I ever had there.

    My grandfather is 98 years old. He doesn't remember much anymore. But oddly enough, he remembers that I ride, and that I have a horse. He grew up with horses and always told me stories of his mare that jumped a 6 foot retaining wall to escape the clutches of a Mountain Lion!
    So every year, for birthdays and Christmas, I get cards that say: "I love you, granddaughter. Take good care of your horse. They are Gods gift to us" In every single card. Without fail. :)

    Oxer, you're so lucky to have those grandfather memories! Mine died when I was in my 30's (over 20 years ago!) and he was horse crazy and loved talking with me about mine. I didn't appreciate how special that was, at the time. Seven years ago I named my colt after him, sort of - Grandpa's name was Wesley and I couldn't imagine saying "Whoa, Wesley" 10,000 times...so I named him after my Grandpa's father (my great granddad) Dallas. So, every time I'm around my horse, I think of Grandpa...and hope he's watching from up there.
