64!

Oh good lord…I will be 64 next month!  64 years old!  No no no no no!  I can’t fathom it!  And, in just 6 years, I will be 70!  Whoa….. just a minute…… I believe I had a minor heart attack…. or maybe it was the chili I ate last night. 

70 years old….I’m going to try hard not to worry about my fate too much.  Did I tell you that I can foresee the future?  Well I can.  And, I know that my Grandson Faolan will want me to move in with him when I turn 74 and he is 20.

By that time, F will have invented a system to recycle the world’s waste, making the waste into homes for the poor and into beautiful parks and practical furniture.  There will no longer be garbage floating in our oceans.  I’m so proud of him, because he will make our earth clean, and he will make a difference.

This picture shows Faolan designing a robot that will aid in the building of wells close to villages in Africa.  Did you know that women spend 40 billion hours a year walking for water?  Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school -- all of which fight poverty. [Fact taken from Charity: Water website.]

He will live in a beautiful home, and will build a quaint cottage for his Gamma (that’s me) on his property, so that I will be able to come and go as I please.  I hear that old people love to party, so before I kick the bucket, I want to make sure that I don’t miss out on all the fun.

Back to Faolan.... I don’t believe it would be a good idea to tell him of his plans for me at this time....the boys just 10.  So let’s keep this on the down low.

My sweet friends, thank you for reading my blog!  I love you all!
