    It's Not All Bad...

    I hope this dosen't scare the under-50s. Someone reminded me, so I'm reminding you. Don't laugh.....it's all true... Perks of reaching 50- or being over 60 and heading towards 70! 01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you. 02. In a hostage situation you are...

    Painful Old Bones.

    I think the worse part is joint pain and gradual loss of strength.I have to ask for help or not get something done.I've been a capable woman and now I feel I'm slipping.It can feel depressing but we have to cope.

    Rattlesnakes On The Prairie

    When I was growing up, my neighborhood mixed underdeveloped properties with homes and nice lawns. One of the latter was what Jefferson Park residents referred to as "the prairie". It was full of weeds and wildflowers - and rattlesnakes. My sister and I were strictly warned to...

    Aging

     I hate getting old. Physically, you lose tone and you get wrinkles and stuff like that.  Mentally, your fluid intelligence declines.  For life in general, you get more responsibilities and worries unlike childhood which is very carefree.

    I Try Not To...

    I don't think I hate growing old as much as I love being healthy. So I cheat age by staying healthy. I feel great :)

    I don't know about sexy, but why worry about getting older it's not as if you can slam the breaks on and stop it. My recommendation grow old disgracefully and have fun.
