Listening to oldies~   Leave a comment

My son Brian came over and brought a bottle of whiskey for him and his father to share, he does this from time to time.

And when they drink they get to talking of life in the past and then they get to being very knowledgeable about everything.

Especially my husband.

Tonight they are listening to oldies.

First of Roy Clark

since he just passed away yesterday but now they are listening to rock.

Or at the moment Creedence Clearwater Revival

My husband especially likes to listen to it all very loudly because for one, he is hard of hearing and the other he is half way drunk so he thinks it is all about the olden days and loud music.

Me not so much.

After a while it will just become senseless noise.

I know, I am an old fuddy duddy but when we are in our house with no where to go…..it gets loud and annoying after a while.

And so it goes……..

I wonder why that is~   Leave a comment

I just read an email from my sister, who lately goes every other day in emailing me instead of every day like she use to, but in her email she wrote that she has a hard time finding a book that holds her interest.

I feel the same way.

I have at least four books that I have started that I have to finish and the reason is, they are boring or don’t hold my attention.

Is it because I am getting older and the brain just doesn’t stay focused as well?

And I have about thirty books in my study downstairs that I bought but haven’t even attempted to read even though at one time I found them interesting enough to buy.

There is one or two down there that I have started but stopped reading because again, it isn’t holding my attention.

Maybe it is my frame of mind when I attempt to start a book.

I know one of my favorite books “Envy” by Saundra Brown, took me four times  starting it before I read it and loved it.

The first chapter was boring and didn’t hold my attention.

It didn’t “Grab” me and make me interested in the characters immediately.

But I did read it and loved it.

So I know these other books will be decent too, but as I said…..sometimes it is hard to get in to one…..

I do wonder if it has to do with getting older?
