This is the first time in my adult life that I don't wear make-up. At 74 I just use moisturizer and lip stuff. Also my hair is growing quite long. I don't want to risk going to get it cut. So I...

school in August?

I keep thinking about how they are going to manage back to school and I just can't see HOW! I've decided that I just can't risk subbing or volunteering. At 74 I'm in the high risk group. I have...

I had cataract surgery about ten years ago. It's a miracle! I just use reading glasses for very small print. Wonderful not having to wear glasses all the time.
