Capturing The Moment — Happy 90th, Don Fletcher   3 comments

Don's Birthday (1 of 1)-2 blogHAPPY BIRTHDAY to Fellow Monday Morning Miler, #90 — Image by Joy

After the hike on Mt. Lemmon this past Monday, some of us gathered for a picnic celebration for a very special person on th occasion of his 90th birthday. Don Fletcher is our hiking “poster child”, since we all would like to still be hiking on our 90th.

Hiking, staying active in general, is a good way to maintain dignity as mature humans, even though store clerks may have replaced “sir” with “sweetie” some time ago.

 

DON’T CALL ME SWEETIE!

Just because I may 

Look old and weak

Don’t call me sweetie —

No “elderspeak” for me.

You may think

You’re being kind,

But it’s not

A good moment

When dignity

Is left behind.
