I missed three. How did you do?

Me too!

Oops! I gave up after the first 3 or 4! Guess I'm a LITTLE younger than you are (I'm 56 this month). Such a cute blog. I love it.

Did you write the words that go with Jesus Loves Me for an older person that is on your side bar?

If so, could I copy them and put them on the back of our church bulletin?

Did you make up the little comedy that I saw about how things like thongs and depends don't go together, etc? May I use that in a church bulletin, too?

I will not use them without your permission. I will give you credit if I can use them.

You are definitely younger that this crowd. I am 65, Attebetty is almost 67, Kathy is 67, and Farkle is 67.
Chris is the youngster at 49 but she is Farkle's daughter and is a "Biddy" by blood association. We call her "Bitty Biddy".
I have taken the things used here from emails that were sent to me or from things I thought might be funny since this blog is about things that pertain to older people.
As you can probably tell, we are all believers and while I do have a blog that is devoted to spiritual things, this one is just for fun.
You certainly may use anything you find on here, with my blessing.

I am turning 60 this summer, and I too through my hands in the air and do some silly 'dance' move when I hear these old songs!

The problem with your questions is.. you think all of us have good memories!!!

I claim it is my early dementia.. yeah, that is it!

P-Dot said...

Jan's Place,
But see, we, as a group are older than you are and are not required to score big on these doo wap memories.
Just admitting that you are familiar with some of them is enough for me.
Thanks for coming by....
Pdot.
