Another benefit of growing older

There have to be some benefits of getting old and I'm determined to find them.

How often have you found yourself watching a television show and saying "I've seen that one".  But then you watch it again because you can't remember how it ends.

There have even been times we've said this during a new episode because it sounds so familiar.  So we just keep enjoying the same old shows over and over again.  I mean, who can get sick of watching "Mash" reruns?

And then there's our Kindle.  We tend to read the same books for the most part as our reading intersts are similar.  But still there is a sense of deja vue during some of the stories.  But once again, we can't recall how it ends so it gets read again.

Thankfully Amazon has a good memory and if we try to actually purchase the same book again it will issue a warning to us.

Now that we have a vast collection in our archives I suppose we could just keep reading and rereading the sames books.  We'd probably not even realize it and just think of the money we'd save.

Maybe it's just a natural part of the aging process - every experience seems to be a "been there done that" kind of thing after a while.  It's pretty hard to surprise old folks.

Long Live the Queen of Something...I forget


  1. I just love this picture!!!!! And you're right about re-reading books. I tend to do that too. I also watch all the re-runs and re-re-runs of all my favorites. Law & Order, Project Runway, etc. There's always some little detail that I've forgotten. Besides, considring how horrid a lot of the new shows are, I'm so glad for the re-runs. You have a wonderful night, hugs, Edna B.

  2. I love this! The picture alone is worth a thousand words. Your words make this priceless!
