I came across a news article about two elderly German men that escaped from a nursing home in order to attend a heavy metal concert.
When the nursing home realized the gentlemen were missing, they called the police. The police located both men at the concert at 3:00 in the morning and drove them back to the facility in a police car.
My first reaction – I want to be like those guys when I am old.
I want to still have the desire to escape in the night, to attend concerts, to feel wild, to bend rules, to express my individuality, to cause trouble, and to make people shake their heads in wonder.
Joey is a ten year old Labrador/Great Pyrenees mix. He is still a spunky dog; however, his spunkiness doesn’t last as long as it once did.
Buddy is a three year old Beagle/Rottweiler mix. He is energetic, friendly, and loves to play.
There is a huge age difference between these guys, but when it comes to doggy friendships, age doesn’t matter.
Joey is probably 9 or 10 years old. As a young dog, Joey would run for hours. However, that is no longer the case. Joey still runs, plays, and wrestles with his brothers. He just gets tired faster and needs more time to rest.
Joey may be an old dog, but he is still spunky. Like they say, you can’t keep a good dog down.

It’s senior prom night, and I just dropped off Gwen. This can’t be right. It seems like only a couple of years ago, I was a high school senior. I was the one running off to school events.
In reality, it’s been a couple of decades. Where did all those years go, and how could they have disappeared in the blink of an eye?
I also wonder what is my mom thinking tonight? Her daughter just drove her granddaughter to the senior prom. That’s got to feel weird.
