Thanks for all the encouraging words -- this is not the end but the beginning of something new and different. I just don't know what it is yet! Just my luck that as soon as I announce pulling the plug, Diana Nyad completes her swim from Cuba to Key West. I'll have to share my thoughts briefly here in the comments section. I am so excited for her. Talk about never giving up! It's just a great story.

Dear friends, I am pulling the plug on the blog. I almost did it once before, but your kind comments weakened my resolve. I said then that if I should decide to quit again, I would just exit the space... Continue reading

So funny about men and tampons. The saddle worked!

Thanks on the hair, and good for you on the bike! I had a good ride this morning, so there is hope.

I took it for a test ride this morning, and I had no pain! Strange but true.

Miss Gulch -- that would be my idol.

I know -- it kept me away for a long time, but where there's a will, there's a way.

Last year I bought a new bicycle -- a lightweight road bike that rides like a dream on the paved trail system where I cycle. The original seat was a little hard on my rump, and I kept thinking about... Continue reading

Sunglasses are miracle workers. I don't know what it is, but they just make working with the camera better. I noticed even the young and glamorous fashionista at Atlantic-Pacific always wear sunglasses.

How great to find a go-to store that suits your style. That's a huge bonus. I haven't been in there in awhile, but I'll be sure to check it out again soon.

Classic definition -- fit well, look good and wear well. I do love something I can hand wash in the sink, too.

Interesting you bring up scarves. I quit buying jewelry -- I have what I need and don't want to fill my closet with a bunch of trendy stuff -- but I do like scarves, and they don't take up much space!

I like California-lazy! I agree about not trying too hard.

I'm kind of coming to terms with the idea that maybe I don't have a passion for fashion. I do have a sense of style, but for me it's more about dressing my body and looking my best than expressing... Continue reading

Thanks for the nod to cool! I hope it came across that I believe all of us are way cooler than we think. Your hair sounds so interesting! I also wonder if hair becomes more delicate as we age. I haven't written about it yet, because I am so scared of making recommendations, but I have been using the Living Proof line of products with great success.

So I read up on, "The Boys in the Boat." Sounds like a must-read!
Hair twins! Hope you are still enjoying life as a blonde. I blow dry it smooth a couple of times a week. The rest of the time I air dry it. I only use the flat iron on my bangs, because my hair is delicate.

It started awhile back, when a colleague complimented me and said I was one of the coolest people she knew. The impact was such that I wrote it down. I didn't know why it felt good to be cool, but... Continue reading

We saw some big groupers, too. They are not afraid. I tried to save Bad Monkey for vacation but failed. Finished it before we left. Another great one from Carl.
All of the above!
Thanks, Peg. I like unconnectedness.
It was great seeing you, too! Now grow some more gray!!
Glad to share happy places!
