Facebook For Seniors

Giving it all with your nearby relationships


To others of my generation who still do not and cannot comprehend why Facebook even exists, try the following, like I’m doing. Here’s what I’m doing to gain better understanding:

I am trying to make new friends without using Facebook, but while applying the same principles. Every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later, and with whom. I give them pictures of my family, my dead dog, and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, or fixing things, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch, and doing what anybody and everybody does every day.

I also listen to their conversations, then give them the “Thumbs Up” and tell them I like them.

And it works!

I already have four people following me: two police officers, a private investigator, and a psychiatrist.
