We have now lived over 1 billion 892 million 160 thousand seconds and are now wading through our sixth decade. We know we’re not alone in walking through midlife into our senior years (cough, cough, cough) wondering… 

“When do we start to FEEL old!?” 

No woman considers many things we “gain” through the passage of time to be positive. Here is where you can join us in conversations about ways we’re accepting those things we cannot change (and maybe bitching about it, a little) – and changing those things we can… (and then trying again when at first we don’t succeed… – and maybe  bitching about it, a little).

The first Heels and Tevas Get-Together; 12 December, 2017 (including honorary man-Diva, Jaye’s Dan.

​We’re Barb & Lynnelle.  We’re as different as night and day, or Heels and Tevas.  

  • We’re very good friends.
  • Both of us USED to think 60 was old.
  • Neither of us feel old.  

We know we’re not alone!

2018 is our year for a more simplified and fulfilling year. Please join us.

Is Using Anti-Aging Products “False Advertising”?

A recent article on the website Sixty and Me talked about a point that Shark Tank's Mr. Wonderful, Kevin O'Leary, made. Evidently Mr. Wonderful excuses himself from the competition (He says, "I'm out".) when a presenting entrepreneur's product pitch promises a result he feels is, or results in a misrepresentation; especially if the promise is for a physical transformation. The [...]


Women Over 60 Still Have THOSE Kinda Days

Just because you’re a woman over 60 doesn’t mean you don’t still have THOSE days. And, by THOSE days I mean any day you aren’t on your game. It doesn’t take a period to go off the rails. I’ve spent the last few days in a real weird zone; not a total funk, not really depressed – but more like a deer in headlights. Honesty, I’m still there. Perhaps it’s post- [...]


The Spy Online May Not Love You

Barb Here Every Online Site Could Be a Spy When we returned to the States in 2016, I was surprised to be overwhelmed by numerous technical issues. After all, we’d had a semi-smart phone that took SIM cards from various countries, an iPad, and a 2014 Dell Laptop—how out of date could I be? Yeah. Let me count the ways: real smartphones, the high cost of data plans, people w [...]


You are Freakin’ Awesome! Own it.

Barb Here I am freakin' awesome and a work in progress. This is exactly what Lynnelle and I have been talking about! Seriously, I had big plans for ending 2017 and for starting 2018. Big plans that were derailed by weather, icky colds, poor planning, and lack of execution. This does not make 2018 a failure already. Like me, 2018 is a work in progress. Traditional New Year [...]


Slow Down and Take Stock

Every once in a while, it’s important to slow down and take stock.  If you’re on a long road-trip, periodically you stop for gas and check the clock, the map and confirm you’re still on the right route and timeline (or not. Yikes.) I just ended a full week of cooking and company. Every couple of days I had to stop and look in fridge, look at the calendar and the next mea [...]


My Head Start on 2018

Barb Here My head start on 2018 was to begin my wellness practices in 2017 and this has proven to be brilliant! (I love being brilliant.) After quite a bit of reading and research, I'd decided that the best way for me to lose weight and get in shape was to change my eating habits for life. The most drastic change would be cutting out sugar. Sugar in the Mornin' Oh, Sugar, H [...]


Have Yourself a Happy Little Holiday

Barb Here I don’t miss Christmas Cards.  Yesterday I was in line in the Post Office, waiting patiently, and listening. One young woman was putting holiday stamps on a big pile of cards and gleefully exclaimed, “I only have 27 more to write tonight!” I do not miss that. We haven’t sent cards since 2010 when we left to go sailing. After that first year, I no longer miss [...]


We Report on Lynnelle’s Visit to St. Augustine

For some reason, I'm feeling like a reporter of the social pages in a Southern newspaper in the mid 20th Century. So, here we report on Lynnelle's Visit to St. Augustine—the goal of her recent road trip. “Barbara Hart was delighted to have visitors this week when her dear friend Lynnelle arrived from Elgin, Texas—a small town near Austin. Wearing a stylish sweater poncho [...]
