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

Here's to YOU!

NDY. Not Dead Yet---an acronym I'll use in the future to alert my friends of my current earthly status. Please try to remember this as I probably won't.

Well, I'm finally rested up but my terminal terminal final croaked shortly after I made my last post. Thanks to all of you who wrote expressing concern and I'm really sorry I couldn't access my mail until yesterday. Carole's computer was also on the blink, though not permanently, and we had to wait for Dr. Science to come home from Houston and fix things.


It's really so odd. I thought of all of you so much. I wondered what Namoi thought about the Emmy awards, if Guy's sweetthing was all better, what Duncan and Holly were up to (who can keep up with Terri?!) I wondered how Kenju fits so many interesting things in her house, when Chancy and Joy were going to post more of their wonderful poetry and where Miss Celliania would finally move. Had Tidbit chewed through any vital electrical thingies? I sincerely missed Claude's thought-provoking Daily Snaps and I thought always of Savtadotty and my family in Eretz Isroel.

Inspirational Classics--new and old: Millie, Maria, Jamie Dawn, Ronni, Patti, Cop Car, Endment, Lorraine, Alan, Mike, Roberta, Rain, Ginnie, Saz, Coll, Naomi DB, Lucy, Janice and Roger et al----I miss you all---and I don't care if that sounds strange to a non-blogger.

I have three handwritten blogs to post but I must relinquish Jack's computer. He is standing, drooling, over me as I write. I think it's a sign---but I'll be back as soon as I can!

Your ever-lovin' and NDY lucyd

    Lucy!!! You're here and NDY! Wonderful. I was wondering what you were up to!

    I'm quite relieved that you're NDY. Neither am I :-)

    Well alright Lucy....all is well with the world again. Glad it was only your computer that gave up the ghost! :)

    I'm SO glad that you are back...and I know what you mean about your Blogger friends. I am new at this and already feel a kinship. Can't wait to read the blogs you've written out.

    Well, I guess you see the uproar you've started young lady....but, as long as we know the scoop....we're cool. We all missed you Lucy...God knows we've all been frustrated one time or another by computer problems that we have no control over. Glad you're back an operating...even if Jack IS hanging over your shoulder. We'll be looking for your next post...

    So glad to hear from you! You mentioned you were going somewhere, so I didn't worry, but I missed your posts. I haven't gotten a job yet, haven't even got a resume together, but New York is on top of the list of possibles.

     
  • At 5:12 PM, Blogger Chancy said…

    LUCY!!!!! I know what got you up and posting again...

    It was my EMAIL. I asked where you were and if you were "shacked up with the cabana boy again". So you just HAD to surface..

    Computer trouble...Bah Humbug..
    ;)

    So glad to hear you are NDY!!! LOL! Indeed, Lucy....I feel I should give you my phone number and if this should happen again I can alert everyone that you are just fine, but have no Computer to let us know that...Good idea?
    So glad you are still with us, dear Lucy! Can't wait to see your other posts and you can read all about my feelings about The Emmy's and Wendy's visit, etc...If Jack lets you use his computer for more than 10 minutes at a time! (HA)
    Welcome back to the land of the computer bloggers, my dear....

     
  • At 7:45 PM, Blogger bunnygirl said…

    Yay, you're back! I've been having computer troubles of my own, so I really feel for you.

    Must be something in the air...

    Welcome back - we were getting just a little worried....can you tell?

     
  • At 1:27 AM, Blogger Maya's Granny said…

    So glad you're back. I was missing you.

    Am so glad to see you back again. I just figured you were off composing some sort of piece that would set us all back on our heels once again.

    I'm a non-blogger, but what you say about wondering what was going on with other bloggers doesn't sound strange to me at all. A year ago, it might have, but not now.

    Welcome back, Lucy. I clicked on here everyday, hoping to see a new post. Glad to know that it was only the terminal that was lame! And thanks for the mention (it's a big house)...lol

    (Doesn't sound strange to me at all!)

    Welcome back Lucy. I was wondering and wondering what was going on with you.

    I got a kick out of what Chancy said, not the computer at all, you were busy with some young handsome guy, Ill buy that!!

    Terrific!! You're back!
    Love your posts.

    Woo-hoo! I'm glad your NDY. ;)
    LOL at Dr. Science .... do you rememberMr. Wizard on TV? I used to love that show as a kid.

     
  • At 3:29 PM, Anonymous Janice said…

    We miss you when you're away, Ms. Lucy! I'm sure Mr. Science can fix anything, right?

    WAHOOOOO! You're BACK and safe and sound! Lucy, you've got to develop a system (something I blogged about today because of YOU...lol) and let us know you're alright when you disappear from the blog world for awhile.
    SO glad you're safe and sound and it was simply computer problems you had. Geeze, I never thought of THAT....lol You were greatly missed! And I look forward to you posting those blogs you've written out.

    I must admit I was a bit concerned... glad to have you back. And sorry to hear about your computer probs.

    Lucy,
    I really, really missed you and your wonderful insights into life. I think NDY needs to be a senior rallying cry.

     
  • At 2:47 AM, Blogger Ginnie said…

    Lucy, Thanks so much for all your encouraging comments. It really helps to keep me going and I love to read your blogs too.

     
  • At 5:10 AM, Blogger Lee-ann said…

    Lucy, You are one amazing lady!

    I am so pleased I have come back to visit and to see you are enjoying life and not NDY as you put it.

    have a lovely day.
    Lee-ann

    Lucy--Awwww...you say the sweetest things. Frankly, I hadn't worried about you (although I did miss you) because, like Chancy, I assumed that you were off having fun. (Was he cute?) Glad that you're NDY and let's just keep it that way, shall we?
    Hugs--
    Cop Car

    So glad you are back!!!

     
  • At 8:32 PM, Blogger Suzann said…

    Welcome back - miss you darling Lucy. I hope you enjoyed Minnesota even if the car trip was uncomfortable. Hugs.

     
  • At 7:57 AM, Blogger Jamie Dawn said…

    I'm NDY too! Hooray! We live and breathe!!!
    Computer woes are a real PAIN. They make you want to smash things. Go ahead, Lucy, grab a bat, and break something. You'll feel better with each whack.
    Buy a bag of chocolate truffles. Those decadent little treats always make everything seem better.

    Happy Weekend!

    I like "NDY." I will have to start using that when the time comes. I'm 48 now, a baby boomer.

    You are a riot. Everyone needs Mr. Science now and then. Keep him close...

    Hi Lucy, glad you're NDY. I'm also a Lucy. You don't know me. I just ran across your blog and really enjoyed reading it. This particular post was funny to me b/c I just sent my best friend the birthday card that had those pictures on it. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I think you're hilarious and to keep up the good blogging.
