Take Two in Life After 60

If life was only like the movies. Not so much the content, but the “retakes”. You blow the line, just stop and do another take. But life doesn’t work that way. You only get one chance to get ...


I don’t know which is worse. To be in love with the right person at the wrong time or to be in love with the wrong person at the right time. Both will make you miserable. At times I feel like I...


One never understands a situation, or a subject until one becomes personally involved. Such is the topic of discussion today. It’s one of those that I always laughed off as an excuse not to ta...


I used to believe in Happily Ever After. I also believed that “till death do us part” was the ultimate sacrifice. Then a funny thing happened on the way to both. I found out they were both lie...


Have you ever eaten an Oyster? Me neither. They do not appeal to my palette. And when I was 18, as the world lay before me, it didn’t appeal to me either. I suddenly realized that I was not p...


(Disclaimer: Suicide occurs every 40 seconds. If you or someone you know needs help please call Call 1-800-273-8255- National Suicide Hotline- Your life matters!) I understand suicide is a da...

17 Again in Life After 60

That magical year, just past 16 and just before 18, when your whole world changes. Not a child, but not quite an adult. Innocence. While there doesn’t seem to be a great milestone to celebrate...

I Press On in Life After 60

Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own ....Ah, yes, the lengths one will go through to make something their own. I have always maintained t...


Lucky 7! Today I celebrate 7 years of life after my second heart attack in 6 days. In some respect my life has changed so much since that time, and in others, it simple remains the same. I gues...

Vegas Odds in Life After 60

What are the odds of two people, who live 6 1/2 hours apart, meeting, marrying, and living happily ever after? I guess you would have to break each part down separately. Now what are the odds t...


Sometimes I feel like Samuel Beckett wrote my story of waiting on love when he wrote Waiting for Godot. I’ve been waiting for a long time, (well, long to me) and love still hasn’t shown up.) I ...


“Woman’s faults are many…Men’s are but two..everything they say and everything they do.” Okay, now that I got that out of my system let me move on to more important things. Most men, by nature,...


I am a computer nerd, (Tech) by choice. I do speak geek. So I know that cache is pronounced cash. When talking to my fellow geeks, we understand each other. But add a non-geek to the mix and i...


My generation can probably complete that phrase and tell you who made that statement. Sadly, we can also tell you what happened at Columbine High School in Littleton CO. And both are examples o...

Jaded in Life After 60

Life is like a game show. Press Your Luck comes to mind. Never satisfied with what you have, you keep pressing on, until the dreaded Whammy comes alone and takes everything you have. (Much lik...

Quite Please in Life After 60

“The worst time to have a heart attack is during a game of charades.” As opposed to? So just when is a good time? For me that became a reality 7 years ago today. When you think nothing can b...

FireProof in Life After 60

I just finished a few weeks ago, building my own small house. I installed what they call FireGuard sheet rock. It helps protect against fire spreading rapidly. Plus it provides great insulatio...


Communication. Men don’t…Women want too. For example, a woman will ask, “How was your day?” to which the man replies, “Fine”…and in the mans mind that is the end of the discussion. Reverse t...


Change is inevitable. But is change always good? I would suppose that it depends on what the change is, how it effects you, and one’s reaction to it. And I have seen so much change in the last...


Absolutes, they will get you into trouble, eventually. Do these pants make my butt look big? Any guy recognizes a set up for a fight when he sees one. (Do I tell her the truth and risk hurting ...


Oh, does that take me back to a simpler time. I love to listen to the rain on a tin roof, so relaxing. My cabin is perfect for that. And my life is pretty much complete. There is very little...

Broken, Together in Life After 60

A broken bone hurts! I have lost count of the number of bones I have broken in my lifetime. But they all have one thing in common–They hurt. And a broken heart hurts. Perhaps worse than any t...


Yes, I sometimes border on the extreme. Reading directions literally is one of those things. It brightens my day. Lather, Rinse, Repeat....I am going to run out of shampoo really quick. Or th...


In my short time on this earth there are few days that will live in infamy. But some that stand out. Nov 22nd 1963, Dec 12th 1971, May 14th 1976, and April 28th 1979- while only one of those d...


Everybody’s working for the week-end. Why does Monday-thru-Friday drag on forever and the week-end is over before you know it? I am thinking there is a space-time continuum factor at work. I do...
