Hello out there. I live in Ottawa, Canada. I am 71 years old, retired and I live alone with my dog, Reilly. He is a 15-year old cocker spaniel. I got him when he was just a puppy and he has been my little buddy ever since. We are both old now and well known in the neighbourhood where we can be seen hobbling down the street. We are so slow that it takes a half-hour for a ten minute walk! lol
I love to sing although I am not a trained singer nor can I read music. To learn a new song I have to listen to it over and over (and over and over again) before I try to sing it. I am part of a four man group called "Ageless Spirits". We have been together a couple of years and we are all seniors, aged from 69 to 83. I sing backup and harmony, with the odd solo thrown in here and there. We perform at various retirement homes - a variety of music, mostly pre-1960's, in different genres, i.e. country, pop, folk, oldies, etc. We don't charge anything - it is payment enough just to watch the seniors enjoy the music which often obviously brings back memories to many of them.
