    Seeing so many are in the reading mode, is anyone interested in another of my short stories penned in the 1990s?

    "The Doors" by Ruby Rose Ruby--a precious jewel--or so she was led to believe--was a middle-aged woman with a daguerreotype of pain etched on her face by a long and slow exposure to a bad marriage. She had recently been abandoned by her husband of many years for a younger woman. Ruby was...

    Books! How do you read and what do you read?

    I beg to differ as I feel there are many readers on SF. I must comment on this International Bestseller book that I finished the other day. It is called 'The Little Old Lady Who Broke All The Rules by Catharina Ingelmas-Sundberg. I loved it all and want to join the 'gang'.

    Growing older: What age is considered elderly?

    I have confused people for a long time as my hair, which is naturally pitch black, started turning grey in my early twenties. (a genetic thing) Hopping along to my 50s, I said the heck with it and started to let it go. From keeping it up colour wise all those years, the mixture of colours...

    Growing older: What age is considered elderly?

    What creeps me out is that everyone wants to hold my arm...I am not an invalid just because I am in my eighties! But, on that same vein, if I know something is going to be heavy with sore arms later, I tell them to 'fill their boots' and take it and carry it.

    Books! How do you read and what do you read?

    I have read books written by Kate Atkinson and have enjoyed same. But for some reason, these days I am hooked on epics...thick books with a 'ship' in it. Presently in the living-room, I am reading Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh a dynasty based in 1880s during the Opium Wars which is really...

    Schizophrenia linked to marijuana use disorder is on the rise

    Must admit, I have never tried marijuana though people have tried to talk me into it. I try to stay away from pain killers as well as I truly enjoy having a 'clear working mind'...but darn it all, that old age thing is messing me about...gotta work on that...

    Would you live with one or more of your adult children if you got old and alone?

    After my husband passed and I decided to relocate to the Prairies, I stayed with my eldest daughter and her husband for four months until I decided and found the right abode...and I did. 'No rush', they said but 'the sooner the better' I thought, as totally not my 'plan'. I had so many lists...

    Caption: Woman and man dancing.

    Oh man...sure miss those dancing days but not with my husband as he was way over 6 ft...thus I ended up too close to the armpit as I am not much over 5 feet though taller with my spikes.

    Have you ever caught your adult children in a lie?

    Both daughters have retorted when I worry and say; "We are adults, Momma" and this is true. Guess there comes a time when you have to let go but man is that hard!

    Have you ever caught your adult children in a lie?

    Lie #1: When my youngest daughter was a cop, and I was living in the area at that time, I would see her pretty well every second day. Two weeks went by and there was no sign of her, though she would phone pretty well every day and I asked her how she was and she'd say "Fine, fine, I'm just...

    Do you have flashbacks to your life memories?

    I get weird and wonderful flashbacks day and night with anything and everything triggering them off...more so now that I am in my eighties.
