Mom Gets the Gold! (And Silver, and Bronze…)

My mother just called. She is in the Polk County Senior Games (it’s a Senior Olympics, the largest one in Florida) this week and last. So far she and Fred have won 4 gold, 4 silver, and 1 or 2 bronze medals in ballroom dancing, and Mom won two silver for the 50 yard and 100 yard dashes. (She has one more event this week, a longer walk where she doesn’t expect a medal.) Go mom!

She said they won Gold in all the “fun” dances, which I think includes Polka, Jitterbug and Twist. She said they were the only ones in their age group to enter the Twist, so they could do anything they wanted. They got goofy a little but won the gold just for having the guts (and stamina) to participate! Good for them.

They are in the age group for folks in their 70s, but Fred can still pull Mom through his legs in the Jitterbug. That always brings the crowd to a roar!!!

I hope I’m like my mom when I grow up. She rocks!
