Today normal aging is considered a curse. Some cling so desperately to youth they become a caricature of themselves. Is this what now passes for growing old gracefully?

You wont catch me:

Swallowing 25 or more anti aging pills per day....I hate taking aspirin

Subjecting my body to cosmetic surgery,...they still use a knife, last time I checked. Why in all that is common sense, would you let someone cut you if you didn't have too?

Engaging in obsessive can take this one to the bank. It's not gonna happen

Fanatically dieting.......see above

Dressing in clothes designed for adolescents...... I know when to's no big deal. That's why they make jogging outfits, empire waist, jumper dresses, over-blouses and elastic waist pants. Or you could just exercise if sagging bothers you. There is a time for everything and what goes up will come down..,,you should feel like a comfortable cushion when your grandchildren hug you. Whose gonna play Grandma if you look like your granddaughter's Mother instead of her Grandmother. Give the kids a break,,,give them a real Grandma.

Mimicking the verbal expressions and hand gestures of teens. This one is just sad when you hear and see it. Especially if it is coming from someone who can't move their face. Grandpa should not be flashing any one the ROCK ON sign, and yelling YO...You flashed your PEACE sign when you were young and yelled CAN YOU DIG IT?'s their time now....move on! Surgery can't help elbows and hands enough to hide your age anyway.

I personally find all of Hollywood a little strange looking. Have you noticed how much they all favor? They all look like they have intermarried once too often. They don't have to worry about a flood in Hollywood. If one happens, with all that plastic they inject, they will all float. LOL

To funny! I totally agree--especially about voluntarily being cut on! Maybe they (Hollyweird)loose braincells when they botox! Rock on--er--way to go, Eve! ;-)

I am 82 amd am so thankful for internet.
I do write sometimes but I really enjoy reading other bloggers more and I think you have one of the best blogs I have read.
Certainly beats mine !!

As for living your age, I do, and my husband of 63 years does too. His 84th birthday was the 15th and we noted it with family, kids, spouses, grandkids, spouses, and great-grandkids. Absolutely wonderful !!

Amen, sister, to it all!

I would consider plastic surgery-- at least I did, (waiting for money) and then a few years ago a famous writer died while undergoing a face lift. Well. So time went by and I told myself the woman's case was rare, and what do you know, I heard of the same thing again last year. What does one say at the pearly gates: "I'm here because of vanity." Not for me. :)

I'm attempting to age gracefully..most people I work with are much younger, so sometimes that's hard.

No botox or surgery for moi!
