My granddaughter just put a post on Facebook this evening reminding me that I got my first tattoo for my 70th birthday. Time does go by so fast, it does not seem like it has been that long...7 years this April.
I got to thinking of the things that I finally got to do after I turned 70 in addition to a tattoo.
I went to Las Vegas with the girls to celebrate my daughters 50th birthday.
Finally got to see an ocean, went to Los Angeles, CA with 2 of my daughters and their friends. Put my feet in the ocean for the first time, and saw lots of wonderful sights. We rented a place in the Hollywood Hills with a hot tub and great view on the patio.
Last summer we went to a Family Reunion in West Virginia with most of the family getting to go.
Last year they started a bus to the Casino in Oklahoma once a week, and we have gone on it several times. Farther than the KC casinos, but nice not to have to drive.
This year in October, I went to Conceal and Carry Weapons Class, and the target test. Got 20 out of 20 shots in the target on the practice and 18 out of 20 on the test. Now I have my Conceal and Carry License. Doubtful that I will ever carry, but can if I want.
I need to add some more adventures to this list before that big 80 comes. Once 75 went by now time is really flying. So I need to make the downhill ride worth it.
On April 19,th, 77th Birthday, the girls took me for an adventure. Went to a Drag Queen Brunch at Hamburger Mary's in Kansas City...bottomless Mimosas and entertainment.
