When I grow old.........

This is Edna. She was the local Pre School teacher in Corryong for over 30 years and was there when all of my children went to Pre school.  She is now nearing 80 and still loves to have a go at new things. Last year horse riding was offered locally during Seniors week and she was the only one that went.  She wants to ride pillion on a motor bike just one more time because when she was a child she often went on the motor bike with her Father.  She still has a child like enthusiasm for life and when I grow up I want to have that too!

my.mum.is.also.an.Edna.and.she.is.almost.95.
The.thing.she.has.taught.me.over.the.last.15-20.years,is.that.we.are.never.'finished',and.are.always.a.work.in.progress...so.long.as.we.are.willing.to.give.it.a.go...just.like.your.Edna.
