Yes I’m a year older today, and I seem to be getting more and more grey hairs, but I don’t mind the salt and pepper look. I remember a few years ago at a shopping centre, I saw a Lady, she had long hair, (I’ve had long hair most of my life) and it was the colour of salt and pepper, and I thought she really looked nice, and I remember thinking, I hope I look that nice with that colour hair. Well I will have to leave that for others to judge, but I also have really long hair, (past my waist) so I hope others think that the colour suits me. Personally I like it.
For those people who follow my blog, and are wondering why I went missing every now and then, I have been on Jury Service for a couple of weeks, It has been many, many, years since I took a bus to anywhere, but when I was called in for Jury Service I decided to catch the bus into the city. Things have certainly changed, all the new bus exchanges, (bus stops) I knew about them of course as the roads changed, but never actually saw the new bus exchanges. I had to catch a pretty early bus, as the next one if it had of been late, I would have been late. So on this early bus, I passed people sleeping in doorways of shops, homeless people still walking around drunk, and the usual people all on their way to work. It certainly was a different city than what I was used to seeing.
But I did enjoy the bus ride, something different for me anyway, and got to the Supreme Court in plenty of time. I got a coffee and went to an area outside of the court until it was time to go in, and I met some really nice people, all of whom were also having a coffee, so I got to enjoy those mornings meeting and talking to new people. Jury Service for me finished yesterday, so everything goes back to normal, until the next time.
Some friends are putting on a barbie for me tonight, and I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone, it should be a wonderful night. Here in Queensland we love our bar-b-ques, and will use any excuse to light up the barbie, just like the rest of OZ I’m sure.
WHY AGING ISN’T SO BAD
*Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
*People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
*Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can’t remember them either.
*There’s nothing left to learn the hard way.
*Your joints are more accurate than the National Weather Service.
*In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first
*The clothes you’ve put away until they come back in style… come back in style
*Things you buy now won’t wear out.
Of course the video I wanted to put here was one that I couldn’t play on my blog, because of Sony copyright, you can still embed the video, you just can’t play it.
