Living their best life

Last Thursday evening we had a very nice meal at the coast. The restaurant is right on the seafront. We had a table that was just inside but with a view looking out to the Mediterranean sea. It was a cloudy but warm evening and the sea was quite tranquil.

Also at the restaurant at the same time were two other couples, a smartly dressed older lady on her own and a group of about six ladies of a certain age. The group of ladies gave the impression that they were living their best life. They were all quite brightly dressed , talking and laughing and one was puffing on a huge cigar. They ordered three or four bottles of wine and then ordered food. They were clearly having a good time chatting and enjoying each other's company.

When I was a child, people of my grandparents' generation were old. They looked old, they thought old and they acted old. I'm pleased that many of the people of my generation refuse to be like that. Including me. Stay young people!
