Hey, I have a question about these Boomer Zombies....

will we still be allowed to listen to the Grateful Dead?
Or will we need a new group called the Grateful UnDead?

I like being able to create my own magazines from the articles and group similar topics together

It's not for me at this age, either, but I must say it takes a really, really special person/couple at the age of 65 or so to adopt a 17-yaer-old who has grown out of the adoption system. Wow. And the kid who got adopted is just glowing, having found parents and graduating from h.s. and going to the prom.

Wow--have you seen those photos of 78-year-old Barbara Eden wearing her genie outfit at a charity benefit?? 58 I could see it, maybe even 68--but she's 78 and still looking that vigorous! Wow, wow and double wow! May we all look that healthy and fit no matter how old we get.

OK, that does it! Inspired! I was off to a good start when derailed by a trip to Paris. She's incredible. And can still wiggle her nose.

Hahaha--hey those genie pants might be your best friend--looks like they can hide a lot of jiggle. Not sure I want people looking at my belly button any more, though. There are some things most of us seniors are better off not displaying.
