if you can laugh at yourself....you will always be entertained
Interests: i'm a jill of all trades...master of a couple. anything funny always interests me. some of my other at the moment interests include poodle mohawk dog grooming, nonprofessional rock hard bagel baking, do it yourself cosmetic surgery, planting lettuce gardens for all the wild varmits, hammering silver instead of my fingers, decorating emergencies, happy accidents except in my pants, buying exercise equipment from infomercials when i can't sleep, looking in the frig for something to eat, missing exercise class, giving unsolicited advice because after all....i do know it all, faux finishing every surface in sight and then starting over, and trying to remember that ultimately i do have to pay for all that ebay stuff. and if you're wondering....yes, my little dog, chloe, only has one eye.

Hi Girlfriends, When you live in the AARK (active adult retirement kommunity), it becomes apparent the many ways we old people differ from the young. I'm not sure the oldies can handle life any better, I think we just have more time on our hands to deal with stuff. One... Continue reading

Hi girlfriends, I have limited patience for boring parts of my life. If I was stuck in an elevator on the 37th floor, I would become bored before scared. To solve my boredom issues, I always carry something to read with me....and, since I like to read, it's a win... Continue reading

Hi Girlfriends, I read an article a couple weeks ago about the things that make for "happy seniors". The number one reason was good health....I agree. If you don't have your health, nothing else matters. Some of the other things were strong social connections, enough money, not watching too much... Continue reading

Hi girlfriends, Last week, we had some grandkids for a sleep over. I like to do art projects with them, especially when the weather is nice enough to be outside, because there's always a mess when you combine gkids, paint, glue, glitter, and water. We spent the afternoon making fingerprint... Continue reading

My week was going pretty well. No big crisis to deal with. For a change, things were actually calm around here. I'd been working outside, in between the spring rain showers to get the patio furniture uncovered and ready for summer. We're so ready to get the webs between our... Continue reading
