New Blog: "How Not to Act Old"

Thanks go to Baristanet for pointing out this hiliarious - and yet sadly too true! - blog, How Not to Act Old.

It is full of appropriate advice for those of us who are, shall we say, well past the first blush of youth, or "of a certain age," as they used to say (and we shouldn't say it because, yes, it would make us seem old).

You'll be happy to note that Pam, the author, includes "Don't Vote Republican" as a way not to act old. To quote:

"All Republicans are, in spirit if not in years, old. They’re conservatives, which by definition means they’re against change and for the status quo. They’re pro-money — and why not, since as old white men, they have plenty. And against abortion — again why not, since as old white men, they can’t get pregnant.

Even if, for some bizarre reason, your politics line up with the Republicans, I still implore you to resist voting with them. Think of how old their presidential candidate is compared with the Democrats’. Think, even more important, of your image."


So check it out - I think most of us can relate to it!

Having just turned 64 this grabbed me by the throat, then eased off and caressed me with my smart choices and my left leaning politics, and yet....

I've missed you. Have you been to busy to get out and about?

Half of them I said oh I would NEVER do that ... but it carries little weight when I am already doing the other half!

Sophia Loren (OK it probably makes me old to even know who she is) said the way to stay young is to not make old person sounds when you get up & down. Uh-Oh, oooof!

That lady on the banner of "How Not to Act Old" reminds me of dear old Mom.

Hey, what a minute, those are my favorite running shoes that went missing last year. It is Mom.

I need to inventory the humidor.
