Crich village cross

A senior’s version of Facebook.


I am of that age when I cannot fathom what Facebook is all about or why it is so poplar. My daughter informed me I might make more friends if I applied Facebook to my everyday life. So, I took on her advice.

When I walk down the street I inform passers-by what I have eaten, what I did last night, where I am going later on, what I am watching on TV. I show them photographs of my last meal, my family and friends, my pets, and of me cooking, mending things, weeding, standing in front of landmarks and pulling funny faces.

I give them “thumbs up” and tell them I “like” them.

It does work – just like Facebook I already have several followers. They include: social workers, police officers, a private detective and a psychiatrist.
