Many years ago, in Pasadena, the city where I lived, everyone seemed to be singing this song. As kids, we all thought it was so funny.
Who was that 'little old lady from Pasadena'?? In our minds, she was a feeble little old white haired lady who could barely get around, she must have been at least 50!
Life has such a funny way of bringing things back to us...
Even though I live in Texas now, I am far more than old enough to qualify and I do have the credentials.
Having lived in Pasadena all through my growing up years, life has come full circle. Now, when that song comes to mind, I still think of that little old lady, and before I wonder who she can be, it hits me that I am she!
I wonder if whoever that lady was when the song began, thought the whole idea was funny... and didn't feel old at all.
I hope so, 'cuz it's for sure that I don't feel old or particularly little, either one, and although I am now a Texan, I will always be from Pasadena.
So when you hear the expression "Little old lady from Pasadena"... remember there really IS one, and she is still laughing and definitely still in denial.
