RE: Re: now elderly ramblings< now elderly wisdom (or any other kind of wisdom for that matter!

OK-  somebody quick tell me the secret- how do you keep going everyday and
not just want to scream or stay in bed all day!  This has been a
particularly bad week- but- man I need to win the lottery so I can retire
and play in my garden instead of going to work!  I actually had to talk to
my staff about cleaning up after themself today- and people wonder why I
haven't had kids yet!
So- how do you all keep your sanity??

Believe me, Melody, there are mornings when, at 74, I feel ancient.  And
when I work in my garden and things grow well, and when I share interests
with friends, I don't feel that old at all.  As long as the old body keeps
moving - and on mornings like this when the temperature is in the single
digits, it moves more slowly - and the mind keeps functioning, I guess
chronological age doesn't matter too much. That's a good thing about the
Internet - you can't see all my wrinkles.  Jim may sound like a grandpa to
you, but to me he sounds more like one of my sons - God bless 'em.  Auralie
