These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age. (Oh, my, God, I'm 65!) I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live just outside Chicago, the best city in the world. I'm an aunt and a friend. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.

That whole "horse to water" thing
Yesterday he told me about this "new and different thing" he just tried. He met with a career coach! "I think it would be good to have someone really help me get some focus and clarity for myself and a career. In looking over my career, I don't think I ever really picked what I wanted to do, opportunities came-up and out of obligation I took them."
I just smiled and told him what good news it was.

For the Troops
Just sent a box of 5 paperback books and some notepads to our soldiers serving in Afghanistan. I wanted to make sure the people at Operation Shoebox have enough time to receive them, put them in holiday stockings, and get them overseas in time for Christmas.
It's a wonderful feeling, helping the young people who so bravely serve. You can help, too! From their homepage:
Currently we are in desperate need of travel sized hygiene products for the troops. If you have any you would like to donate, please send it to us at: Operation Shoebox, 8360 E. Highway 25, Belleview FL 34420. Thank You!
I promise you: your day will be brighter and your holidays will be happier if you pitch in.
