Wordless Wednesday!

That's a doozy, Thisisme! It's ironic how some dyed in the wool smokers can live to a ripe old age while others fall victim to the dangerous habit at an early age. Research seems to indicate that your genetic makeup has a lot to do with it. It was a gamble that I was willing to take for 30 years but this month marks 19 years since I quit cold turkey. I look forward to your post over on Perfect Dose of Life, dear friend!

Hilarious!:)

Shady was right. Some folks seem to do whatever they want and keep right on living to a ripe old age while others that eat organic food and exercise drop dead young. However looking at the picture of my "Fantastic Five" I am sure one reason for their longevity is staying active. Have a marvelous day.

Shady - hi there dear friend. I haven't heard of that word before - "doozy", but you are right, it is so ironic that people who do everything right can die fairly young, whilst others who smoke and drink, can seemingly go on for ever with no visible health problems. Well done you anyway on giving it up for so long. Yes, my guest post is tomorrow!!

lyndylou - it is pretty funny, isn't it?!

Odie - Yes, it is really strange how life can work out, but you are right in staying active, both in mind and body. Hope you're having a good week over there my friend.

Bethe - Glad it made you smile today!

Grammy Goodwill - :)

Bouncin' Barb said...

Sush - yes, I agree, if she reached 100, she would be entitled to do what she liked!

Bouncin'Barb - Lovely to have you back my friend. I've missed you too! I agree with you that she could get up to all sorts on reaching that grand age!!

Claudia - glad you like the new header photo!

Belle said...

My hubby's father was an alcoholic and chain smoker who lived to be 87. No one liked him, but he did live! LOL

Did you take the picture at the top of your blog? It is wonderful.

EvaMarie Sa said...

Great picture :-) I also like the picture you have at the front of your blog - lovely flowers.
Have a lovely evening!

Thisisme. said...

Belle - Hi there. Your father did very well then to get to 87 with his way of living! Yes, I took the header photo myself. It was the flowers that my daughter gave me just before her wedding.

EvaMarie - glad you liked the photo of the flowers as well. The sun has been shining and is still shining now at almost 9 p.m.! :)

Retired English Teacher said...

What a riot! The model is probably really 70 but looks like 100 from smoking. :)

Susan said...

Can't help it...I LOVE this! At 100 years old, she deserves a cigarette! Love your floral arrangement photo Thisisme!

BECKY said...

Oh, that's hilarious!! If she's lived to be 100 by smoking, then I say "More power to her!" :-)

Terra said...

Hi, I am a woman of a certain age too, and like your definition. I am your newest follower.

Teresa - in the Middle Side of Life said...

too funny! i'm with barb - if she's made it that long, let her do whatever floats her boat.

Chatty Crone said...

Did you know she's really only 39!

Thisisme. said...

flowers on my table - glad you liked the new header photo my friend! Thank you for the good luck wishes.

Retired English Teacher - Hee Hee! I hadn't thought of that, that she might not really be 100 after all. Probably the same age as me. LOL!!

Becca - it is pretty awesome, isn't it?!

Susan - as you say, to reach that great age, she certainly deserves a cigarette!!!

Becky - More power to her indeed my friend!!

Terra - How lovely of you to pop over to my blog today and to become my newest Follower. Thank you so much! I will certainly pop over to see you later on today.

Teresa - Whatever floats her boat! Brilliant. You do have a lovely turn of phrase!!

Xhatty Crone - Oh, you're too funny!!! LOL!!

Desiree said...

Absolutely LOVE your newest banner. Are the flowers from your garden?

Belive it or not, I knew an old lady who took up smoking on her 100th birthday. She reckoned she'd been good her whole life and that since it had served her well, there was no harm in taking on a few bad habits before she succumbed to the grave. So, each lunctime after that, she had half a glass of white wine and half a cigarette! She died shortly after her 103rd birthday.

Thisisme. said...

Desiree - Hi! Glad you like the header photo. No, unfortunately, the flowers are not from my garden. My daughter gave me the bouquet a few days before her wedding, and they were from the lady that did all her wedding flowers, which were stunning. That's an amazing story of that lady. Good for her I say!
