Feelin' good ooh la la!

Hello dear friends,

Do hope that you are enjoying the weekend.
Why is it that they always seem to go so fast?

Just had to share with you,... this has to be one of the oldest flash mobs ever! 

The below link is to a video of some fantastic older Ladies who all live on Waiheke Island and are lovers of life, keen to embrace new experiences and up for anything.

A fabulous Lady in sky blue appeared, from among the lunch time shoppers and workers who came out of their offices,  at a busy Downtown square, and began to dance. Brenda who is 79 years of age, lead the dancers to the DNC track, Feelin' Good Ooh La La. The eldest was a Lady called Violet who was 96 and in a wheelchair.
While this mob was obviously young at heart, its average age had to be in the late 70's.

They all  seemed to have terrific fun and good to see such a youthful outlook on life.

DD is on holiday for a few days and  it is great to have her back and we look forward to enjoying the time together.  
Hoping to come and visit you soon, at your place.
 Have a beautiful week ahead.

  5. Oh Carolyn, I cannot tell you how much this is so close to my heart! I believe that people need to keep ACTIVE in both body, mind and spirit to get the most out of this DEAL of life. That woman in the blue shirt, HOLY COW is she gorgeous or what? OK, I am beyond 50 and yet I feel like 20...I MOVE A LOT and I am not afraid to move it either! What a great encouragement this is today!

    I hope you are well and that your mum is on her way to a full recovery. Do you think she will be up to a little OH LÀ LÀ?

    Fondly, Anita
