Now, Where Are My Sneakers??!!

Becoming a quasi athlete in your 60’s can be viewed as admirable, enviable or just plain nuts! Sometimes I shake my head in disbelief wondering, “who is this person setting the alarm so that she can be on the pickleball court by 8 am?” Lacing up my sneakers as I grab my pickleball gear, I … Continue reading

Scotland, Here I Come!

This post is a reprint from New York Golfing Magazine, Long Island/Metro, NY Summer 2017 Edition   Four years ago, my friend Bill retired after a long and illustrious career. Although Bill was the first retiree of our group, the rest of us, all knocking on the door of retirement, pledged to make plans for … Continue reading

Gratitude: Who Me?

Being a woman of a certain age has many advantages. The freedom to be yourself without the worry or care of those nagging voices of public opinion; kids finally on their own, gainfully employed and able to take care of themselves; no more tuition payments, no more pregnancy scares and the ability to go and … Continue reading

Pickleball??? What the Heck is Pickleball?

I’ve never considered myself an athlete. Growing up in the 50’s and 60’s most cool girls did not “do” sports. It would never have dawned on me to ask my father, who was an avid golfer, if he would teach me how to play and I’m just as sure it never occurred to him either. … Continue reading

Glamping, Here I Come…. Well, Maybe!

Last summer, I’ve shared with you my previous escapade as a first time RV’er in the camper my husband suddenly “sprung” on me.  To say, at the time, I was under enthused was an understatement but as we know, the universe has a sense of humor.   For some unearthly reason, I find myself suddenly … Continue reading

Advocating for Your Own Health

Marek Uliasz | Dreamstime.com – <a href=”https://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-health-concept-cloud-related-words-topics-image11856791#res10760805″>Health concept – cloud of related words and topics</a> Growing up, doctors were seen as god like beings, all-knowing, all-seeing. Even today, doctors, who in my mind, conjure up images of Doogie Howser, MD, the 16-year-old TV doctor from years gone by, are addressed by their surnames while their … Continue reading

NOT AGAIN!

Knowing that it was “spring ahead” time in a few weeks began a slow, creeping adrenaline rush that radiated from the core of my being. Having spent the winter months of January and February in sunny Florida renewed my spirit and lulled me into a false sense of summer. Returning to New York, at the … Continue reading

The RV and Me: My Journey to Acceptance

My husband has always envisioned himself as an outdoorsman. His dream vacation consists of a trek to the mountains, encompassing New York State land, hiking trails, a river or a stream, and a starlit night. A tent, a lean-to or better yet an RV would be his ideal accommodation. Many moons ago, before we were … Continue reading

The BI Girls Together Again!

As my plane circled JFK airport, my feel good endorphins could not be contained. This feeling evoked by spending 6 days with women I’ve known for over 48 years was beyond words. Describing them as friends is an understatement. The word friend, although in certain respects is an apt description, falls increasingly short in describing … Continue reading
