We have 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, “Are we really women over 60?? When do we start to FEEL old??”

No woman considers EVERYTHING gained 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…   We know we’re not alone!  Please join us.

The Art of You, Your Story and What You Like

Our life is our story. Getting older, we’ve seen many years and (hopefully) learned a lot. On the good side, we learn what we like and don’t like. On the other hand, we learn what we like and don’t like. Many times, unfortunately, we give all our attention to what we know we like and avoid the rest. Your story can only be about what you know, so the more you experience, t [...]


When Good Actors Make Scary Movies

Barb Here. Why do great actors make scary movies?   For someone who hasn’t been to a real movie theater in years, I tend to keep up with current movies. All we’re watching right now are those that come free with our Prime membership, which is hit or miss, plus bits of various talk and comedy shows on YouTube. This means that I’m aware of the X-Men Franchise, know that [...]


American History in Paris

Lynnelle here. History. It wasn’t my favorite class back in the day. Partly because my history classes were more an exercise of memorization than learning about life of another era. Also, I think my “arrogance of youth” prevented me from considering anything other than my generation could possibly have any relevance. Sad. [...]


Mars, Venus, and Sexy Underwear

Barb Here I may not publish this post. (Because do you really need to read a post about communication between the sexes and pee-proof underwear? Isn't that one bridge too far? I know what will happen, though: I’ll write it, share it with Lynnelle and she’ll make me publish it. (She did. Lynnelle made me post this.) [...]


Successful Retirement Requires Room for Champagne

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve written anything – or even sat down at my computer. No particular event or reason. I just didn’t “feel like it”. Part of me feels like I’m deluding myself in thinking anyone even reads the stuff I write here. Another part doesn’t give a shit. [...]


Women Friends are Priceless—and Vital

Barb Here Those Special Friends Who've Helped us Become the Women We Are Now Those special friends—those pre-boobs “Friends-for-Life” and those post-boobs “Forever-Friends”. Most of us have one or two or, if we're really fortunate more women who have remained our friends through thick and thicker (or thin and thinner); through training bras and losing our virgi [...]


It’s Never Too Late to Change Your Life

Barb Here It’s not too late to change your life. I believe that because I believe it’s not too late to change my life, and I’m working on that change. Every. Single. Day. So I believe this to be true for all of us: If you are healthy enough to undertake your chosen new path, then it’s not too late to change your life. There's a caveat to this: Having never completed [...]
