Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

You know that you're retro if you can remember darning socks, using a small gourd to slip into the sock as a base to sew on. Who darns socks in today's America...or even sews on a button?
You know that you're retro when you can remember that every home had an old black Underwood somewhere...and typing "...now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their party..." as a practice sentence to test the ink ribbon.
You know that you're retro when you can remember wearing saddle shoes in middle school and freshman year.
Retro is a little kinder than the word....OLD...don't ya' think?
