Alphabet Laughs-A Is For Avacado And Apple And Agile

I have decided to do
what I am going to call
The Alphabet Posts.
Where do I start?
Why with
A 
of course.
So...
A is for Avacado,
The fruit of the Gods.
A
is also for Apple.
Delicious and Tasty
worm spots and all
(okay- what is worse than
finding a worm in your half-eaten
apple?  Well...finding
HALF A WORM, of course!
And...last but not least...
A is for
Agile.
MyHero 
sometimes forgets
that he is on the
cloudy side of 60.
You know the side..
the one where you get
cataracts.
The time of life when
your get up and go has
kind of got up and went.

Grow old?
Nope!
Not MYHERO!
MyHero can run
and play with the best
of them.

You know he likes to sit,
and snack
right?
Okay-either he has spilled
glazing on his shirt or
he has really bad dandruff...
can I get an EEEEWWW?
But once he is 
OFF 
his seat
you might find him
diving over the chair
he was sitting in.
Pretty
AGILE
for his age, huh?

I think they ought to have
a special place in the
Olympics for
guys like him...
don't you?

Yep!
That's MyHero.
So.......How's your 
old boy doing?

  2. How did you catch that shot. Same thing happened with my husband a couple years back. The chair he was in flipped and so did he. Uninjured and quite funny. Hope yours wasn't hurt in the filming of this act.

  3. I give your hero a ten for that amazing feat. My guy and I spent our morning cleaning up after the storms last night. Picking up branches and limbs and cutting them into manageable sizes. Not the morning I had in mind...but at least we got about 2 inches of rain. Smiles, Susie

  4. It definitely looks like it could be a new Olympic sport.

  5. You'd better give that man a gold medal because I don't think anyone will ever beat him at chair diving.
    And I had thought about playing olympics and getting those little gold wrapped chocolate coins and putting red white and blue ribbons on them - but there was no gold wrapped chocolate at Walmart - so I didn't get the medals made. Oh, well.... we'll find plenty to do and anytime there is a winner there is also a loser - and I don't feel much like losing right now, anyway.

  6. No one here but me - no old boys around. Although, I am on that cloudy side of 60 too.

  7. Diane, my old boy is in better shape than I am. He is 68 and he rides 10 miles daily on his bicycle and plays golf twice a week. He thinks he is 21 years old. I keep reminding him he is not.

  8. My old boy is right in the middle of the road of the 60's. He is still working out(he was Mr. Michigan in 1986), and looks pretty good for an old geezer! He decided to buy a Harley...he misses his old bike(we're not talking a Schwinn). So, he's doing pretty good.
    I must say, your Hero does well in the chair jumping catagory. Did he take the gold medal? I couldn't tell without seeing the landing?
    xxoo

  11. A is for Arney......Arney is 67 and is amazing to me. He left working on Auto Air conditioning and went to work as a tool man at Lowe's about 4 years ago. And believe me it is hard work. He is not standing around waiting for a customer. He climbs ladders, lifts heavy things, builds things, and stocks. All on cement floors. Then does all the yard work, and now doing a remodel on the bedrooms upstairs. He is my hero...yep, they just keep going.
    Thank you for reading my story, I know it was long, but somethings just need to be told. Or maybe I just needed to write it. Love, Mary

  12. How in the world did he get up in the air...over the chair? Are we going to hear 'the rest of the story'? OH MY! My guy just ate lunch with me and we had guacamole with smoked chicken! I love avocados!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Your Hero is adorable, able to fly over tall building or chairs at the speed of light...so amazing!
    Your, Mary

  14. Love avocados! I'd say that's pretty good hanging over the chair like that!

  20. Chair diving??? How many broken bones?

    ReplyDelete
  21. While I don't think my "cloudy" hubby can top yours in the chair event, he's great at getting down on the floor to play with the grandkids, no matter how tired and sore he is when he comes home from work.

  31. Mr. Bird Nest doesn't have a t-shirt without a stain on it somewhere. I think he must have been a real test for his mother. Great POST!!!

  33. Oh my gosh! Did he do a roll-over after this shot? This looks like he did it "on purpose"...I might break a bone or two if I tried this.
