Because I Am Getting Old…
We took a little side trip to Historic Downtown Richmond on Sunday afternoon.
As we were window shopping…this is what was in front in one of the adorable stores!
Isn’t she a beauty?
I feel in love at first sight!
Not sure of the year and model…what I do know, she is a Chevrolet.
American born and made.
Just look at the design innovations automobiles had back then…sigh.
I think I might be an old soul.
Speaking of old, I will let you listen into a conversation, I had with Little Man.
“Nolan, it is very important to always love and protect your baby sister, Marisa!”
“One day, Grammie, Papaw, Mommie & Daddy won’t be here anymore.”
His eyes get real BIG…and says, “Why, won’t you be here!?”
(OK, at this point…the conversation is NOT going toward the direction I was hoping for!)
I said, “Well…we are getting OLD and will go to heaven someday.”
I see him getting very sad…so I intercede quickly by saying…”BUT, NOT RIGHT NOW!”
Little Man says, “Oh, because you are still NEW?”…
“Yes, sweetheart…we are still new.”
In the background, I hear my son-in-law, mutter…”Some of us are newer than others!”
Out of the mouth of babes and son-in-laws…!!!!
Remember the humor in life…
I love the old vehicle – a blast from the past!
What a wonderful photograph, Laurie. I love all the rust on the truck, too. I am an old soul right along with you! 🙂 Wonderful little conversation with your grandson. He is so precious.
There is nothing wrong with being an old soul as long as you are still new! And one comment stated that you would always be new in spirit. Little Man is fortunate to have you in his life to remember. Cute story! Cheers to life every day at any age!
Ha! your son in law was on it!
Glad you jumped in and saved the moment for Nolan, and very glad you are still NEW!
Lovely. We’re still new 🙂
We are as ‘new’ as we feel, Laurie? Darn old, some days 🙂 🙂
When I was probably your age, a person referred to me as ‘relatively youthful.’ 🙂 A while back, a friend commented that ‘we’ are on the exit ramp of life. I much preferred being relatively youthful.
Ha! We just had a conversation about where the Easter Bunny lives..my son said, he lives with the Tooth Fairy, and my grandson said, Oh no he doesn’t, they’re NOT married!! Love the old car Laurie, beautiful photo-
Oh, I love your story too!
Carpe diem. 😉
She is lovely.. I can see even at this stage she still has her beauty..
What an awesome and funny story! Out of the mouth’s of babes and young whipper snappers! tee hee! Hugz Lisa and Bear The car is a beauty! (My dream car is a Chevrolet Tahoe)
Yes, we have had many laughs about this story.
Had a chuckle reading this Laurie 😀
I would’ve been all over that car with my camera! But the conversation with little man was adorable
When I found the car, my mouth just dropped open.
Oh! That sweet exchange with Nolan!!
Aren’t children just the best?!
Little man is precious! And you will always be new in spirit!
Thank you Sherry, I will try to remember that.
Being newer or being older, depends NOT on age – tell our “old” son in law this – cheese, good red wine, women and many cars are all – getting better and better as the years passing – opposite us men who are starting at the top then hike downhill … 😀 😀 😀
You are hilarious!
How precious …. living life through the eyes, ears and mouths of a child!
Yes, Kathy it is precious. Fun being here to live these everyday moments with them.
Thank you for the beautiful story and the smile, Laurie ❤
Note to son in law, good way to get slapped! This is precious, God bless!
