I’m 75 Today

Jenny-Jones-at-75

I’m 75 today, thought I looked good & strong

But everyone seems bent on proving me wrong.

I shop for my groceries and feel like a star

Then someone says, “Do you need help to your car?”

At the nursery I got plants and am ready to pay

He says, “Lucky for you it’s senior discount day!”

I tried on some shoes at the mall I could wear

Salesgirl said, “My grandmother has the very same pair.”

We’re all getting older – this is not big news

So eat well, laugh often, and wear comfortable shoes.

I survived a pandemic so I can survive the scrutiny of posting an un-retouched photo taken on my 75th birthday. And I vow not to retouch the one I post when I turn 80!

    My mother taught me the Duppa word. Loved hearing it! Where in Poland were you from? Have you had your genealogy traced? My grandparents were from Silesia, near Opole. I visited there five to seven times and now skype with relatives there and Polish/Silesians living in Brazil (found through genealogy).

    I’m on my 3rd round with your Gołąpki recipe and now found your blog. Thanks for sharing! I am 74 years old now and used to be the genealogist for several VIPs, including presidents and TV and movie celebrities. Now, I am giving back to society. You are an inspiration!

    Hi Jenny. Happy birthday to you.
    I stumbled on your cooking on youtube. With my first ever oven, i knew i wd bake and bake… but my baking was so horrible until i found you. I have baked twice in a row..😀 the chocolate cake and the cupcakes. Next will be the cinamon rolls and on to all the rest on your list. You make baking seem soo easy and fun… with ” who’s yo daddy”😎. Thank you so much. God bless and keep you. 🙏. I look fowrad to more healthy recipes for queenagers. 😁

    Happy Birthday!
    I love your youtube recipes for choc cake and lemon cake. They are the nicest.
    I’d love you to make another video, same recipe, of your polish Pu-jelly donuts. They are so good. I’m not sure how you say it… it’s sounds like punshki or punshkis or else pushki. Just because of how good the recipe is, makes doing it again such a good idea.
    In the whole recipe incl the coating there’s only 2 tbsp butter, I think, or three. working men melt and and go aw my god. They REALLY work. They really are lovely, and you are very pretty…it has to be said.
    We sure do come from people who knew how to cook. You really can cook.
    From your slovak/ukie cousin. 🙂

      I never watched your tv show nor really ever heard of you before today 9/4/21. I was looking at your cooking recipes on youtube as I am also of Polish extraction. I noticed your jokes at end of videos and really enjoyed your humor. I looked up your history and you have a very interesting background. Your joy is your stronghold. Keep laughing and keep cooking. I’m 68 and just really started enjoying cooking in the last few years cooking for my 90 year old father. Also, what else is there to do at our age with the Pandemic that is wholesome and keeps one out of trouble?!!! I also like tha td you are not selling or pitching anything on your videos and have a free download of your cookbook. You have a lot of special qualities. May God bless you and keep you.

    Hi Jenny!

    I was born on June 7, 1946 so I know exactly how you feel being 75.

    When I go to the Jewel food store here in Chicago, they often ask if they can help me with my groceries to the car and I just roll my eyes. I hate being reminded of my age. (Maybe I should remove all the mirrors in my house also, that would help.

    Glad you are feeling great also. Hopefully I can write to you on June 7, 2036 when we are both NINETY!!

  15. Marilyn says:

    I think you still look beautiful! I’ve just started watching your YouTube cooking videos and have made several things. They’ve all turned out perfect! You are my inspiration 😀🙏

    I’ve always loved the saying, “You’re only as old as you feel.” You feel like a star because YOU ARE, Jenny! My grandmother will celebrate 80 years on December 22nd and she absolutely loved your show. You’ve still got that beautiful warm smile that would brighten anyone’s day. I’ll be 35 in August and i’m starting to cherish every moment of life and learn to not let the words of others dictate my feelings. We are fearfully and wonderfully made and it’s such a blessing to be alive. Keep shining your light, Jenny and keep showing that gorgeous smile. God bless!

    Happy birthday! You look lovely. Hope your day was full of blessings. You remind me of my Aunt Joy Chabot (60’s movie star). I am making your Acai jello today as I’m having trouble eating for med reasons. I’m so grateful because it was bothering me to have to eat lots of jello with food dye etc in it, so from the bottom of my heart- thank you!
