Delightful Saturday

Our gig was one we love doing today.  It was at a senior living facility in Birmingham.  This was our third visit there this year and each time is a delight.  The seniors are delightful, attentive and so interacting.  Today I met a new lady who had moved in since we were there before.  She was very festive in a crimson outfit and I asked her what team she was cheering for today.

She smiled and told me she was cheering for any team in Alabama who had a game today.  She informed me that she was 90, a positive thinker and had been a cheerleader in her younger days.
Her quote "once a cheerleader, always a cheerleader."   She was so precious I just wanted to bring her home with us.

Several of our regulars showed up, always encouraging and sharing their stories.  Often they have family members who are visiting and they bring them to our show.  Today one of the ladies brought her daughter, and both were delightful.

Tonight, we helped our great-nephew Stone celebrate his 16 birthday.  His birthday was Halloween but the family celebrated tonight.

Rick is watching the Alabama/LSU game, honestly, I am too tired to watch.  Flipping through a magazine is about as much energy as I can muster tonight.

Wishing you all peace and kindness tomorrow.


  1. How wonderful that you get pleasure while giving pleasure...

  2. Your Rick did tell us to check your blog to learn more about your Saturday gig. Glad you were with such wonderful people. How encouraging it must be to see those lovely folks growing older with grace. Hope you have a rest filled Sunday!

  3. I'm glad that you could bring some great entertainment to the seniors. They are so appreciative.
    Have a great week.
    Hugs, Julia
