And Where Have You Been the Past 40 Years?

You know you have lived a long time when you hear from someone who has been lost in decades of moves, changes, marriages, and life. But, lo and behold, I received a letter from an old friend this week, someone I haven’t heard from since 1967. Or was it 1968? Anyway, 40+ years of living… Continue reading And Where Have You Been the Past 40 Years?

My mother once told me that looking good when we get older isn’t hard, it just costs more. At the time I was younger and didn’t quite understand…but today, I’m getting a much clearer picture of the price of looking good as I age. Such things as wrinkles, grey hair, unwanted hair, wrinkles, thinning hair,… Continue reading Mother was Right After All!
