Old Man Learns a Lesson his Sons won’t soon Forget November 30, 2009

Once upon a time….a Ukrainian tale adapted by my Friedman tell the story of an old man who lived with his four sons who were treating him like a second class citizen each trying to pass him off to the next brother. When they decided they wanted to send their father away to “school”, the father wept as he told the story to a merchant. The merchant had a brilliant idea (actually he WAS brilliant) and shared a plan with the old man that would help him with his sons. Read the story and learn how the old man lived out his remaining years being treated like royalty by his sons. Such a change of hearts. After the old man died, the village elders smiled at the way the story ended. And you will too.

It’s been a few weeks since I last wrote and I’ve missed you all! A very sick spouse, with what the Doc says was H1N1, who’s finally, after almost six weeks, getting back on the healthy side — has kept me distracted from Blogging and Twittering away.  Amen to that….we count our blessings.  But no more excuses, it’s time to rock n’ roll…not dream and drool.

Focusing on the upbeat side of life: Disney Studios has done it again. But this time I think the animated film, called UP,  is meant to be seen by anyone who considers themself an  ageless dreamer.  I don’t want to give away the story – it’s both funny, adventuresome, sad, silly, and downright witty.  So, if you’re looking to indulge in a realy heartfelt adventure wrapped around some true realities of life and ageing, I’d recommend UP in a heartbeat. Let me know what you think.

Live for the ride.  That was Lura Johnson’s motto when she turned 100 years old in 2006 and for her next couple birthdays.  But it was her 100 and 101st birthdays that produced her signature smile and wave: Lura was a passenger in the sidecar of a Harley!  Thanks to her daughter who remembered to ask her Mom if she had a dream,  and the help of Ageless Dreamer, Lura’s ageless dream came true and she was one happy gal.  On November 1, 2009 Lura decided, at 103, that she was ready to ride a Harley in heaven and we trust she is.  To Motorcycle MaMa J.: Thanks for sharing your spirit and believing that you’re really never too old to dream. Ride on, smile on, and wave to us in our dreams!
