This just mean Mick, Keith, and Ronnie are getting old, not me! But I'm less than six months way from being on Medicare, so I guess I'm getting on also.

Would they let you face each other if they knew you were friends?

Ibuprofen is very toxic for cats. Be careful!

You want another puppy in your life - and decide that the time is now, because there's still a good chance that you will outlive it.

My Dentist is younger and probably going to last me out. But my Doctor is retiring next fall and my Lawyer retired last year. I'm looking for young'uns to take their place so I don't have to go looking again.

"Old Folks Boogie" from the Little Feat "Time Loves a Hero" album. Always liked the song. Still do, even now I'm becoming one of those Old Folks...

The last time I was scheduled to see the man with the rubber trombone, one of the techs actually asked me if I'd like the monitor where I could see it too. What on earth made her think I would enjoy that view?! I was tempted to ask for popcorn and a program but thought the better of it.

Thanks, everyone.

I've been taking notes on all these signs of aging, and as I approach my mid-70s, I'll report back if I notice any.

As a professional underwear model, I have to keep my abs so hard you can bounce a nickel off them. I know many of you can relate as well. So, I've gotta run. I've got bungee-jumping this morning, and a half-marathon in the afternoon. After that, my workout schedule gets a little busy...

This hit my brain late last night. At bedtime. You know you are old when you remember when all the lights were off that if you saw any light whatsoever it meant something was on. And it needed to be turned off. Now days I see blue lights on my dishwasher and red lights on my flat screen etc. There are little lights here and there all over my house when the lights are off now.
