    Vintage Retro ...

    A lot of the stuff my 18 year old daughter is interested in ... fashion, music, arts and so on ... she would describe as retro or vintage ... and the majority of them are things that I was into as a young woman! I guess that makes me vintage retro too doesn't it??

    I know I'm getting older (or losing my memory

    more, not sure which it is) when I have to look in the refrigerator to remember that I was looking for different clothes to wear. Or when I move my wallet out of my bag and can't remember to put it back in before going anywhere (thankfully a couple other family members have the...
