Who Says You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Tricks?

4 Oct

Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Certainly, not me!

Advancing age is no embargo to new interests and discoveries. Take us, for example.

Being both on the wrong side of unspecified numbers has in no way dulled our appreciation and enjoyment of rock and roll dancing. Yes, you heard me: despite being steeped in classics, both Ron and I are now unashamedly devotees of this genre.

Those who are familiar with Ron will, of course, recognise him as the world-famous creator of the Grand Organ in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall: and by extension, assume his soul is with yesterday’s musical masterpieces.
At this very moment, he is listening to new recordings of classics of another era: The Beatles. Tunes made famous by The Searchers, Herman’s Hermits, Roy Orbison, and Creedence Clearwater Revival now feature amongst his favourites: and mine!

Can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Gotta be joking!

    So true, they may be old but they are still smart, still able to learn new tricks. Go Ron and Margaret, stay young always and forever.

    Pst! Don’t tell anyone else, but learning (new tricks) is the secret to eternal youth 🙂
