There's Life In The Old Girl Yet



I've had a good life, been a good wife
My kids didn't turn out to be junkies
I've tried the new trends, made a lot of good friends
And put up with some weirdoes and flunkies
I was considered to be...or so they all told me
A pretty hot chick in my day
Although the years fly too fast, I don't live in the past
Just ask and I'll come out to play
I fuss with my make-up 
I just like to shake up
My peers who think I'm too bold
Forget Father Time...I'm in my prime
And I just refuse to grow old!

    Thanks Sarah...Since we can't hold back the aging clock...we might as well make the most of the minutes/hours we have left by LIVING life...not counting the number of tick toks we have left! Bea
