Photos: Halloween party at 400 Towers
Residents of 400 Towers enjoyed a Halloween party on Thursday night that included a costume contest, karaoke and sweets.
Is that Bea ??
I didn't see Bea there.
I see Lee, couldn't tell if that other one was Bea!
lol, no, I wasn't there. The senior that normally staffs the shop on Thursday evening is at Rochester General. His surgery was yesterday. I covered his shift. I should have dressed up anyway as the lonely Maytag repairman, since the shop had few visitors. So, while all of the merriment was happening, I caught up on my reading, "The Day the Falls Stood Still", this month's book discussion selection.
Old people are scary enough without costumes...
Jason, whoever indicated that they were wearing costumes?
Don't see the humor in that comment, "just kidding" or not. Unless something happens to shorten your life, you'll be elderly one day.
Sorry Lori, I never claimed that my humor is the same as your humor. And, for what it's worth, the prospect of becoming elderly is also classified under scary for me.
As I was leaving, one old guy said to me, "See what you have to look forward to? ... Better get your reservation in now. There's a waiting list."
My Uncle Hank often said "it stinks to get old, but it sure beats the alternative." He passed away at 89. I personally look forward to being "old", it usually comes with such wisdom (see comment above).
Jason, I agree that becoming elderly is a scary thought, I have that fear, too. But elderly people aren't scary. Any of them who might read this article who were looking forward to seeing some pictures from where they live and/or of their friends, I just hope their feelings aren't hurt by your comment. I actually have a fantastic sense of humor, thanks, and appreciate others. It just made me cringe, sorry. If this picture was take at a Weight Watchers meeting, would you say that "fat people scare me"? Or if it was taken at the ARC, would you say that "retarded people scare me"?
Not trying to cause any argument, I just think that sometimes in our quest to be funny we forget the possible ramifications of our words.
Like old people use the internet...
Just kidding. ;)
If I have offended any old people with my posts, please accept my heartfelt apology. And then get some thicker skin.
Enough is enough!
I let your first comment slide, but to insinuate that any older person needs to 'get" a thicker skin totally erases the apology.
"Old" people do use the internet. They are adept in keeping up with family and friends on social networks on facebook, twitter, etc.; they read their news from online sources; they do their banking and shopping online; many of them are quite capable of developing their own websites; they blog; some, like myself, carved out a very nice career online.
As one of those "old" people, I can remember having to get certified to do searches online (using boolean logic)long before those searches became free to anyone who could turn on a PC.
How old were you in 1985? That is the first year I went online.
Old enough to know better...
Jason, I'm 58 and I scare the shit out of me. It only gets worse.
Bea, chill baby chill. We love you Dudette, pulling your leg is not a crime yet, but it will be during Obama's second term.
Bea, you said: "(1985) That is the first year I went online."
My first year online was 1997 and I was a subscriber to "America's Old Laddies" aka AOL. Did you work for the Federal Government, because State Government in Texas was still dependent on a mainframe computer with a green on black monitor. It could be fun with the message boards but it wasn't online.
Can you hack into websites? That's the real test these days.
I still love you because you are you and I love that. You too Jason.
