Senior Citizen

Have you ever wondered what your family members will look like when they get old?

I got to see my future on Saturday at my dad's birthday. He turned 55 this year and we wanted to make a joke of it.

This will be a picture overload because everyone looked so ridiculous. Sadly I didn't get many pictures of the guest of honor because he was the only one not dressed up. My dad had no idea about the "Senior Citizen" theme, and actually thought he had gone to the wrong park after pulling up and seeing "a bunch of old folks and no family". But here he is with all the guys, sitting in a wheel chair, making fun of himself. What a good sport!

The ladies......

THE FOLLOWING IS WHAT MY LIFE COULD BE LIKE IN 30-40 YEARS.

There will be wheelchair races.....
with victories........
Some will become wheelchair hogs who claim them, THE ENTIRE PARTY........
Others will grab anyone at any age to push them around.....
We'll see inappropriate muumuu-attired wheelchair poses.....
along with other wierd poses...
Also, in the future, there will be horeshoe tournaments. Those with perfect form.....
and others who take a more RAW (?) approach:
At these said tournaments, I'm sure we'll watch scrimages in the pits.....
hoisting up of saggy boobs.......
and victory shimmies for double ringers.....
A few times I glimpsed the possibility of scrooges, who refuse to let you help them up the hill.
We left Jason there for quite some time, for fear that he'd hit us with his weaponized cane if we came too close:
It's going to be a great retirement! All play and no work.

At the end of the party, reality came back and slapped us in the face.
A bad 'blow out' and tired kids sent us back to the present time.
The future will have to wait.
