A/N: Another oldie, slightly revised!

Has anyone here seen Grandma?
We've been searching high and low
It's time she joined the Senior's Home
But she doesn't want to go
She packed up all her make-up
Paid her Botox bill in full
Her kids think she should act her age
(She thinks that's just of bull!)

Her Hair Salon is worried
Her dye job is almost due
She comes like clockwork every week
They'll miss the revenue
The old age club is miffed
She never joins the group
And tries to lure the rest of them
To come and fly the coop!

Last week she went dancing
And partied all night long
Then someone handed her a mike
And she sang a bawdy song
Her knee's been recycled
Her fingers are really sore
Her shoulders are aching
(Good God...what a bore)

But mention a party
She's raring to go
In search of a kiss
Under the mistletoe!
Please help us to find Grandma
She's getting much too bold
She decided she's too young for us
And refuses to grow old!

Just an idea
I just have an idea if only I were rich I would invest on your poetry and produce to publish a book with some sketches or cartoons for each poem. I'd love doing funny depictions for the humorous ones like this. In the old times, poetry books could be bestsellers even without graphic arts. But today, we also would want to capture the younger audience who only play computer games and listen to rap and hiphop music. They don't know that if they'll give themselves a chance to read a poem such as yours they are going to like it.

I love this poem, Ma Bea, about a Grandma with a Peter Pan Syndrome. You are always entertaining to read.

Seeing Grandma
I'm taking care of ailing parents now. My Mom has been in and out of hospitals and rehap homes for a year now. Isn't it amazing that we are twenty in our minds and our bodies still fail.
Spot on for me - thank you Bea!

Can't Pin Granny Down!
Thanks're looking at the most advanced case of arrested development that you've ever seen! Self Portrait did you ever guess!

Thanks Ken. Hope you're parents are doing better! As for old age knocking at the door...I disconnected my door bell!

refusing to grow old
Don't get me started on your lack of photographic evidence, Bea.

Picture Perfect Francisco!
I hake a lousy picture Francisco...altho (she says modestly) I still haven't fallen to seed as they say...give me my lipstick and my eyelash curler and I'm good to go!!

But that's not the reason I don't post a picture, it's because I don't have a scanner to do so. One of these days,if I ever get one, or my grandson moves his butt and does it for me, I just might post the picture of me(in black & white mind you) in the late forties, that I submitted when we had a photo a bathing suit no less...Kim Kardashian eat your heart out!!!!

In the'll just have to picture me as you will! lol

picturing Bea know I'm kidding, Bea. I picture you with white hair and a tambourine.

Good poem, BTW.

Pushing my buttons!
White hair my foot my friend!!!!

My hair is 1/4 dark brown, 1/2 light brown and the rest gray...which I skillfully cover with a medium brown rinse that I wash out. Since I have a kidney problem, I can't dye it.

Now you have TMI for sure...but you pushed my button...I"ll bet you if you saw me on the bus...I'd be the least one you'd pick as that little ole lady you imagine. By the way, I wouldn't be caught dead with a tamborine in my hand...but if you handed me a mike, I'd probably burst into song...hopefully, not off key! lol

Still love ya though!

BTW Francisco!
If you befriended a couple of friends of mine on facebook that know me of them(Sylvie) from my church (who by the way just published her second book)would describe me for you, or some of my cousins,(unless they thought you a stalker lol) you'd know I always tell the truth about myself! (contrary to previous pronouncements during Lit's upheaval!)

So there!!!!
Bye rocking chair calls!
