Great thing is that at our age we can feel free to break from expected traditions and "shoulds" if we so choose. There's nothing standing in our way as to how we do things, other than enough money to do it. At any rate there are always alternative choices to what has always been expected of us.

OMG! I made more new friends at the senior citizen center today. My husband found a chess partner and I might start volunteer teaching beginning belly dancing. We won the bid on the HUD home across the street [ we have to move there for at least a year] today. I had a blast wearing my new cowboy boots and poncho. I baked a new cookie recipe today that I never have baked before and I think it is already one of my families' top 5 Christmas cookies. Our realtor gave us one of h incredible art pieces that she made. We rearranged the living room, which gives me much more room to exercise. I found my favorite 10 pound hand weights and my "Boston Legal" dvd's while looking for more Christmas decorations in the storage shed. I worked on more episodes for my upcoming video blog [ starts in 2016] It was an incredible day that never would have happened if my husband and I were both working.

OMG! We are having sex more often than we did 15 years ago. Sex actually extends life span! And it helps with insomnia.

Having trouble sleeping tonight so an awake to share my night-dream. Prior to being laid off at 55, I worked with three reservation communities for 5 years. I know I have mentioned before how they resented working with a white female and how it took a few years for them to accept me.

Well, one of my most treasured gifts is a hand made beaded necklace. In the dream I fell asleep in my car while traveling to wherever it was I was going. I pulled over onto a side street & just konked out. The police were called, I must have looked suspicious, and I did not wake up. They got my car unlocked & the policeman who tried to wake me up was native American. He first noticed the blanket I was wrapped up in, another gift from one of the tribes, & then noticed the necklace.

He inspected my purse & saw the motel I'd registered in & drove me there with his partner following behind us. He got me into the room and waited for me to wake up.

That's when I woke up for real.

It brought warm, fuzzy feelings as I realized that in all reality, if I wore that necklace on the reservation I would be respected and treasured. It's not something that would be sold to tourists and is obviously a gift from the heart.

No matter what happened with my job (lay-off), I know I won the hearts of the tribes I worked with. What a wonderful, wonderful feeling.

I'm just glad I'm in Texas for winter, where the sun shines most the time, rather than Wis. where I grew up, as winter is long and cold and dark.

The beach and ocean make us happy along with our yard gives us great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors.
I am 62, I have a 37 year old girlfriend with a hot tub who loves me and I can still keep it up without a blue pill. I give her aftershocks.
Yeah, things are great right now!
