One TV show that I can watch over and over is The Golden Girls. I remember watching this show when it was new. I believe it was on Saturday nights. I’d have the babysitting kids in bed and I’d hunker down on the couch for some quality time with The Golden Girls.
Even though the show has had it’s finale YEARS ago, I still find myself watching. I watched it in college with roommates. I’ve watched it on random channels during the occasional day off. Or even at 2 am when I couldn’t sleep. In a weird way, it’s almost comforting. Like it brings me back to my youth. Just thinking about it reminds me of a friend being obsessed with the theme song and I can hear her singing it now as I write.
At time, I can imagine myself in my “golden years” living with friends. I have some friends in my life today that I’d love to still be friends with in 50 years. I’ve had lots of friends come and go in my life but there a few that I know we will last until our last days.
I’d like you to meet Morty and Lee. They are 90 years old and have been married for over 40 years! The video below shows their dynamic as a married couple. They are sent a gift box from Swiffer to help make theirs, or shall I say Lee’s daily cleaning easier. Check out the #SwifferEffect .
I hope that when I’m 90, I can have as much spunk as those two have!
