Going on 87...Savoring and Surviving the Senior Years

What's 84?

I used to think every year was just another number. Not so! Today I think of another year as another opportunity to appreciate and hopefully learn from all of Life's lessons. I can choose to react positively to what's put on my plate.

I wish that I could express to you what it meant to me to open my mail this morning and discover the best birthday surprise ever...Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!

I have so many things in my life that make me truly grateful: my wonderful family,my health, and all of you, my dear friends! It's such a joy to wake up in the morning, open the computer and read the blogs. Once again, thank you!

If you can find Michele's Ice Cream Parlor I'll be there tonight enjoying my son's annual gift to me: a huge hot fudge sundae. See ya!

    Hi. Happy birthday wishes are sent your way. Many happy returns.

    My aunt and you are the very same age! She is fun like you - must be something to do with the age! Wish I could convince her she could learn enough about a computer to email and blog, but she won't hear of it. She said she is still worrying over the VCR!

    WOW, Lucy, what a delightful blog you have. I enjoy reading your posts very much and always leave with a smile.

    Lucy, I am 79 years old and enjoyed your Blog.

    I have a blog on memoris and recently I included several birthday poems to my sisters. Growing up with my sisters was a learning experience. Being the oldest I tried to get them to see things my way. I soon learned we were very different and that wasn’t going to work. Please click to my memoirs on sisterhood:

    Can I have a spoonful of chocolate? Hope you found that place and had a good sundae.

    Considering how "off" my tastebuds are since I've been sick, the chocolate might not taste good anyway...LOL...I have not had coffee in 3-4 days and I think that is the first time since I was 15 that I haven't had several cups per day!
