Journal History

My journal was so serious yesterday, I felt like giving out a laugh.  I do have a niece named Ava, and she says many funny things like this.  This was in a file marked "anonymous",  so I can't name the original writer.   She is now ten( she was five when I read this) and her 7 yr. old brother adds to the stories. As all parents know, keeping a straight face when a child gets philosophical is not so easy. Enjoy, "Kids do say the darndest things." In the back of my mind I remember her telling me this story, but just to be careful (anonymous sent it to me) I remember her mother's face turning red. My files are a wreck.


The Retirement (Retardment Village)-


Ava recently returned from a vacation with her other grandparents who live in a very nice retirement village. Ava's version of the whole trip still has us laughing. She states, "My grandparents used to live in a great big house, but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Nevada. They live in a place with a lot of other retarded (retired) people. They live in these little huts. They ride big 3 wheeled tricycles, go to a big building they call the wrecked hall, but they fixed it. They do games and exercises but they don't do them very good. There is a swimming pool and they stand in the water with in something called a bathing cap. They don't look like they're in style. I don't think they remember how to swim. To tell the truth, they look pitiful, it couldn't be fun. Grandma used to make delicious food and send us home with cookies,  but I guess they forgot how to cook. They all eat at fast foot restaurants. They're old, who knows what might happen?
When you get to their village, there is something that looks like a big dollhouse with a man sitting in it.  I think he watches them all day so they can't get out. They wear signs with their names on them because they forget who they are. Grandma and Grandpa worked hard  for their retardment, I hope they're happy, but it doesn't look good to me. I wish they would move back home but I guess the man in the dollhouse won't let them out."
So is the story of her grandparents retirement. They're only sixty.
This is it, I am having no more birthdays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She has since learned what retirement means and feels much better.

She's rather precocious.

HAVE A GREAT DAY

I've been having some health issues, so forgive me if I'm not fast.


I'm not looking for a relationship.
My favorite thing is helping people further their career in the arts.
