We had such a good time tonight as there was a community pool party and cookout. This community has 55 and up people living here. You would not believe how old some of them are and boy could they dance, eat and drink! We had a live band at the pool and had so much food to eat that a couple of people prepared. I ended up taking half of my entire dinner home. I cannot eat like I use to but I can still dance. I am old, , but some of the people were really old. One man had to be in his 90's and danced every dance that the band played. He had some of the ladies waiting in line to dance with him. It was great and I know we made the right choice when we moved here a month ago. Can't wait for the next party.

I love it when old people can be cool and party. I don't like old people who are grumpy and think of others who can dance and party a fool. Glad to hear you had a wonderful time.

I agree with what you are saying. Life is to short and who wants to stay in the house and do nothing. Some of the people were very old but had fun. Age is just a number, how we use the number is up to ourselves.

@ramapo17 I totally agree with you on that! That's why I have so much respect for old people who still enjoy their lives.

@toniganzon Some people die having lots of money in the bank but my husband and I keep going and going and will probably have nothing left when we leave this earth.

I love seeing the "older" folks dancing and partying. My parents did nothing when they got older and I tried to get them to go places but they refused. I vowed I will keep going until I cannot go any more.

@ramapo17 I'm the same - just because we're old doesn't mean we've got no life in us. Anyway, I refuse to think of myself as old.

We spent about 2 weeks going to all the senior communities to find the right one. We knew the minute we entered the gates that this felt like we would belong.

It is and nothing is greater than being in the pool or any other activities and seeing all the palm trees blowing over head.
