Wow...Debbie Harry's nail polish matches her lipstick....exactly lol

I work at the blue big box store on the weekends (i'm trying to pay off my car without disturbing my regular $$)
Anyway, most of the people I work with are younger guys around my son's age (mid 20's, i'm 51)
A couple of them think i'm a cute chic that is around 40 (and they do flirt, ask me out to eat after work, etc) and i'm riding that till the wheels fall off. I am afraid someone out on that floor will find out i'm closer to 60 than 40

It strikes a little close to home; I am an Eisenhower baby. BTW, there is another thing that dates me - people my age and older get it when you say that (who was POTUS when you were born) but it seems to have gone out of fashion. I rarely hear anyone use that with a POTUS after JFK.

Yes there is - do like my mother and always wear 3/4 length sleeves.....

Default Mobility issues make me feel old

I have serious mobility issues, caused mostly by my own sloth and only partly by advancing age (72). I find that I can only jog for 3 or 4 minues before having to stop. This pathetic state of affairs can be improved upon with a program of regular jogging (3 or 4 times a week). I have to set aside (ignore) the discouragement factor of attempting to jog and not being able to (except for the 3 to 4 minues) and just keep at it. By way of explanation, I am a freak of nature in having a genetically substandard body in almost every respect. But that doesn't mean I have to settle for the current situation. I will never be normal but I can be better than I am right now.

My right hand is stiff in the morning. I can't do certain yoga pose with my upper shoulders crossed. Other than that I thought my hair would be more gray now that I'm not working and not dying my hair as frequent. Surprise. It's not all white. I can't go blond yet. I might have to do highlight in lighter color but not full head.

What makes me feel old? Not so much my mirror as pictures of me. My mirror says "You don't look too bad for an old lady!" Pictures say "Are you sure you're only 61???"

Smile Seems like yesterday....

We were dancing to "Little Red Corvette" and thinking 1999 was forever away.

Can't believe Prince died. That makes me feel old.

Not bad at all for 71, not bad at all.



I'll probably get a violation for the photo but I couldn't help myself.
