Oldtimer’s disease isn’t funny. Well, maybe just a little…

Stifle your cries of outrage…. actual Alzheimer’s > not funny.  Bit dotty in one’s later years > funny. The first card is the one we printed. But the second card is the one that really made us laugh.


Look Mama! greeting card

… and not printed. Pity. One for the ever-growing book of unprintables.

Look Mama! greeting card

While you’re at it, have a look at the crowd in the background. They are actually in the original photograph. Three are happy but the woman on the left is looking down at frisky old dad with a right old disapproving look. I look at him and say way to go dad!

Happy Anniversary is available from the Look Mama! shopfront here.

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.

  1. Now, what were we talking about? Ah yes… hiding your own Easter eggs.

    I cannot think of a family/carer (or many of my patients, for that matter) who wouldn’t like this & laugh. It captures exactly what a lot of them report/deal w every day. Made me laugh!

      Well I hope so. Someone would get bent up about it though. But then, that’s true of nearly everything! I want to do a book one day of all the cards we just couldn’t quite bring ourselves to print. That would be a HOOT. : )
