Hello Everyone!

Joining all you young things living out your mid-life crisis’s makes me glad that I am past that phase of my life. When you get to be my age you don’t have any sweat left so I guess that is one for the old folks. However, let me hasten to add that an older person has other things that they didn’t have when they were younger.

For instance, one time a student, asked me why I tied my shoelaces double. I told him that when you are in the supermarket or school or anywhere not near a chair and get my age, it is next to impossible to stand on your head and tie up a loose shoelace. Bending down was gone to the past. Then another student asked me -----I forgot what she asked me. Damn!

Guess that is one of the other things I was going to mention that happens when one gets older. You belong to a club –CRS. And if you don’t know what that stands for, ask your grandmother.

I have been impressed with some of the blogs that I have read. I loved the one with the pictures of the girl canning all those beautiful veggies. And the person who had the blog on clouds. She said she used to lie on her back and imagine different forms the clouds made when a child. I did too, and I still remember that.

Please come and visit me often.

Bernie

Hi, Bernie! I'm a friend of Julie's and I'm so glad to see you got your blog up and going. Like daughter like mom! :)

I will enjoy getting an older woman's perspective on life -- see what I have to look forward to. :)

Best,
Kimber

I love to see an older woman blogging.... makes me want to whap my mom upside her head when she gets whiny about anything related to technology. (just kidding!) And she's only 66!!

Your initial post here cracked me up, and I've loved reading through your other posts too. All the best to you while you blog, enjoy!! :)
