Young love in later years :)

Walking home from a friends house just now, I passed a ballroom dancing place just as they were all leaving for the evening.

Lots of silver haired couples laughing and discussing their night as they approached their cars, and although I couldn't pick out any conversations, I did hear something which made me smile.
The elderly gentleman was laughing as he said something to his (equally senior) partner, to which she replied excitedly... "I felt like Cinderella tonight"

That lady really really felt what she said, and as they squeezed their hands together I could only feel happy for the two of them, hoping that when I'm in my 70's (as they looked) I'll be sharing some beautiful moments like they seem to be sharing Smile Smile

Nice story! I like it. Would have been nice to see them ball room dancing as well. I guess that has to be a clue for a list to do when you are in your seventies - take up ball room dancing Very Happy

Lol, I can't quite imagine living as long as 70+ years old!
They all seemed pretty sprightly so maybe dancing is the way forward for a healthy happy life?

...I'm not sure bouncing around to trance/techno/house tunes gets the same result as ballroom styles though! Wink

You're not really 64 are you standready????
I've always assumed you are 30/40 something...still a lad - although I guess you can still be a lad at 64 - perhaps you're making a link to The Beatles track "When I'm 64" ?????????????
