The sweetest thing ever.

In a department store the other day, I saw a very, very old couple walking along together. The woman had just sprayed some perfume on her wrist and was sniffing it. "It smells like watermelon!" she said in a shaky but happy voice. "I want to take a bite out of you!" said the man.

It was the sweetest thing ever.

I don't think I will ever get tired of hearing that. It is the sweetest thing. Ever. :)

At our program at the retirement home last week, there was a couple there. They sat together the whole time and held hands and stuff. And we had a photo booth set up to take their pictures and they had theirs taken together, still holding hands. They were so cute.

And when I was at the seniors' centre in Guelph last year and the year before, there are a few couples there. The one I remember most was the guy was waiting for his wife at the doors, and she came up and he said, "oh, there's my other half!" and took her arm and they walked out together.

I hope we're like that when we're old ;)

i just came across this story and thought i would share a cute old people story...

i work at a restaurant in cincinnati, Montgomery Inn, and I was in the bathroom one day fixing my pony tail when all of a sudden i saw an old man pop his little old head in. I was taken aback, being that I was in the womens room, but he just hollered in "delores? you in there?" then from one of the stalls i heard "yeah, im here. i'll be right out"
the old man "well are you ok?"
woman in stall "yeah, just gimme a second"
so the man closed the door and i walked out. the old man had his wife's purse in his hand... he had brought it to her to make sure she was ok without it. it was really sweet cause they were SO old (probably nearing 90) and they were still going out on dates taking care of each other.

i want that. im fairly certain i've found it too :)

I hope Sarah and I are like that when we're 90. :)
