The White Tops On The Go Again

I read in a journal where someone's grandson calls senior citizens white tops. I would prefer to be called a white top any day compared to old geezer. When you're a white top your past time becomes going to different doctors, having tests, filling prescriptions. Yesterday the dermatolagist took five places (thats country talk for pre skin cancer spots) off my face from when I was young and having fun in the sun. Just to put it mildly I look like a cross between a cat fight and a spotted leopard. It hasn't kept this white top home though. We went to visit our 99 year old white top friend today. As soon as I walked into her room she said don't you think you're wearing your rouge a little high? We stopped at Whata burger and John grabbed my place (that country word again, this time it means where I want to sit) where I can see the door and the counter. The reason for this is so where he points our funny things or people I can see without turning my head around to stare. If I'm looking straight ahead can I help it if people are in my view? If I turn my head I'm being rude and I certainly wouldn't ever want to be that. A heavy set man came up to the counter wearing suspenders. John said look how that man's body spills over his belt. I bet its much worse in the front. Then a man walked up to get a soft drink. John said that man's shirt is out just like mine always is but if he had on overalls like that man who just went out the door he wouldn't have a problem. We moved on down the street to Wal*Mart and everyone we saw at Whatabuger was in there. Can't you tell we're starved for entertainment? We had checked the cows early but there wasn't any news there. No new baby calves, no cows out on the highway, no beer cans on the ground. The boat was moved to the other side of the stock tank. Shelly Marie was mouthing off or mooing off because her calf was on the other side of the fence but that was not a problem since it is a cross fence.

I think I would prefer white top to old geezer myself. I'm not quite to that age yet, I can only hope Paul and I are just as spunky as you two are. We do the same thing with the people watching. Why not, quite a few watch us, with a working dog and motioning to talk. (Hugs)Indigo

I love the idea of being a white top. You know I would rather spend time with white top people then with anyone else!
Stop by for a visit sometime and I will put the kettle on for us.

I remember when we lived in a small town in Northern CA and we would go to A&W for a burger and then right over to Walmart...it was the thing to do on a Friday and everyone else was doing it too1

White top...now that is cute.

We find entertainment where we can hahahahah! Y'all seem to do a good job of it. If we did not have the other humans to look at what would we talk aobut. REkon those cows say look at her, she don't care about that calf of hers, probably turn out to be a rogue. Always enjoy your entries.

People watching is one of the best activities there is! Andrew used to call my Mom's brother the white uncles because of their gray/white hair.

Hi, I love to people watch at the restraunts too, especially the buffett where everyone is big, bigger than me, so makes me feel good! LOL

Linda said...

My friend always used to say this about hair. "Some turns gray and some turns loose." White top is better sounding than chrome dome :-)

I Have Tea said...

I like that - white tops. And people watching is fun. I used to wait outside of our walmart on a bench and watch people go by...their expressions, clothing, etc. It sets the imagination off.

Kelly said...

Nothing may be going on, but you can still talk an interesting entry. :) Kelly

Paula said...

There is no better entertainment than people watching at Walmart!
And with the economy spiraling it's the cheapest I know of!
Walmart and your posts....always good fun!

Lisa said...

I never heard white top before, I like that, it's cute.

People around here tend to say "blue hairs"...that sounds nasty to me. I'm going with white tops.

Rose said...
