Ok, I don't know where to put this, but an amusing little story.


At Ross they give a 10% Senior discount every Wed. Well, I just happened to be shopping there with my kids, and just happen to be 59---they consider "senior" to be over 58. I told the cashier I would like my senior discount, she looked around, like she was looking for the "senior". She then said you have to be at least 58. I informed her I was 59, she gave me a skeptical look. Well, ok, here's my driver's license....she needed a calculator to do the math, then acted flustered, oh, ok.....sure, ....ummmm...the years have been kind to you, ma'am!

Guess all that sunscreen paid off---

Cute story. It is genetics you have to thank also. Some people do everything that you would expect to age them fast and still look 10 years younger even. The sunscreen does help but its not the only factor.

In addition to genetics......the new "secret" is what I've been doing for many, many years. I buy big bottles of pure Emu oil. Before Bedtime: Shake bottle, pour a few drops on your forearm, and rub it all over your cleansed face. Use a cotton pad to remove excess. What remains on your arm, is rubbed all over your elbows and forearms. I alternate which arm every night. Works for me, at 73.

Emu oil from the Emu bird. Back when I worked in the supplement industry we used to stock this. Glad it works for you and very nice of you to share.
