And Don’t Call Me Elderly!

I’d like to deliver a message to the media, and I am serious. Don’t call me elderly! In fact, don’t call me anything at all. If you must state my age in your story, it should not require a modifier.

Plastic Surgery or Wrinkles?

I have no desire to have a facelift. Growing up seeing all the "beautiful" people become more beautiful certainly influenced me to want to look my best. Seeing my mother-in-law go through something so devastating for sheer vanity, also had its influence on me.

Generation Bubble Wrap

I endured an entire childhood without ever once wearing a protective helmet or floatation devices for any activity – indoors or out. I even survived after eating food without washing my hands in antibacterial soaps (or any soap, for that matter).

The News Today

Today’s news isn’t about life-changing events or political suicide. It isn’t empowering or encouraging. Today’s news is an annoying reality TV show and wet weathermen.

Getting the Edge

Not only am I too old for such a costume – I mean, whatever would I look like wearing a pair of slim-fit jeans resplendent with holes, rips and zips meant for youthful girls without the slightest clue what cellulite is (not to mention that these designer rags cost $60), but are women my age really buying such things? I can’t be the first to object to wearing outfits that look like Madonna’s discarded tour costumes.

It's the Only Earth We've Got, So Protect It

Perhaps this is starting to sound like flashbacks to your old high school biology class, so it may be easier to remind ourselves of simpler daily issues such as the future of the world's food supply and what the production of energy does to our land, water, air and outer space and what our plans are for when the fuels run out.

Who’s Taking Credit for the Credit Card?

I don’t exist, but I’m sent a credit card because I do – and have – existed. And it must be used to be active, yet it can’t be used until I become a new user!

A Sign for All Time

I can recall confrontations and vociferous conversations with passersby that disapproved of us “dirty hippies” and our disobedience. Adults who had potentially lived through two world wars and the Great Depression, felt little sympathy for our energetic protests. To our elders then, we were spoiled and entitled brats that knew nothing of real hardships and unfairness!

The Old Gal

Important Deportment

When the head chef returned to our table he was calm and collected and offering us a bottle of champagne, informing us that all our meals would be on the house (as opposed to on the guests) and that I should make sure I send them the bill for the dry cleaning. All was right with the world once more. Well, except for having to spend the rest of the evening digging wet food and leafy green things out of my cleavage.


Some Thoughts on Health Care Costs: Are We Paying More to Be Sicker than Ever?

To see this in action over time, just look at our 5 and 10 cent stores of a few years ago. They are now 99 cent stores. At this rate, in a few more years they will be 99 dollar stores! In reality, prices are not going up. It is actually the value of our dollar steadily going down.
