Old People Can Hike Too! Damn it!

This is Casey, I’ve hacked this site, so you could say I’m guest blogging today:

How dare we try to keep our wobbly elders on flat safe terrain!  They deserve the right to hike. Until it kills them, it’ll  no doubt keep them healthy and happy.

Today we examine a video that I found on my… great aunt Cass Goldman’s  PC. Turned out she can work the camera video, Microsoft Movie Maker, and upload on YouTube.

 Pretty amazing, right?

Never underestimate the stubbornness of the old. They may ask you to do computer stuff for them if you’re around, but if you aren’t, they’ll figure it out on their own.

What else do they have to do?

(That comment is going to get me scolded if any old people read my large print blog.)

Dear old people reading my large print blog. Please do not take anything I write as disparaging. I think you guys are great! Especially my Great Aunt Cass. She’s why my blog is in large print. Otherwise, I get scolded.

And just in case you didn’t know. Young people do not like being scolded.

Or lectured.

Or turn the lights off

Or clean our rooms

Or tell anyone where we are going

All for very good reasons.

We’ve already heard your loop of lectures, and honestly, they didn’t help the first time you gave it, and nothing’s changed.

If we turn the light off, the room disappears. (I think that has something to do with Quantum Physics.)

Our messy rooms match our inner turmoil. If we clean our rooms, then our inner turmoil will seem unbearable in comparison.

And we don’t tell you where we are going because 1) we don’t know, but anywhere but here sounds good. 2) We do know, but you will tell us we can’t go there. 3)We change our minds a lot, so wherever we tell you won’t be where we end up, and then you’ll think we’ve lied to you.

I hope this helps older people understand younger people better, and younger people to realize older people aren’t dead yet. They can actually hike, work cameras, operate video programs and upload to You-Tube.

In other words, THEY ROCK!!!
