  • Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. --Ralph Waldo Emerson

Amen Sister! Preach on! LOL!

Thanks for that, Susan! We really are as young as we feel! As she got older, my mother never looked at herself in a mirror unless unavoidable. She said she didn't know who the old lady looking back at her was because inside she was still a young girl full of hope and energy. Now I'm over-stretching middle age I know what she meant. If only younger people would realize that whatever kind of "weathering" the face and body go through, the person on the inside stays the same.
That's why botox and all those other grotesque attempts to stay young and "in the swim" are futile in the end. Better to be full of the skin one has!


How old was the reporter? Probably some 30 year old youngster. I read somewhere that old is ten years older than what you are right now! I like that definition. When I read about your and your husband's adventures, I know y'all are not old.


Yep, the older I get, the farther down the time line "old age" moves!
