Here We Go!

Day 12 of my Birth month!

One week from today I will be "older". I have to face it...can't get away from it. And the alternative to getting older is...... unthinkable! Too much live to live.

You know, you can only lie about it for so long! I told my girls I was stopping at 49 years old period. So now my girls are getting worried that as they get older...and I get "younger", that people will start thinking I had them when I was about 12 or so. You know, I DID have my first "date" (church function) with my husband when I was 12. And he was a "nice boy from church" who took me parking for the first time.....not on that date though cause his dad drove.

So as an Outrageous Older Woman....what will my adventures be? What are you doing for the rest of your life?

Don't worry about it Doll! Take it from experince, just like fine wine you get better with age.
Pretty soon you'll be bragging about how well you have taken care of yourself, keep on scooten ,and enjoy yourself!

So, let me get this straight. You had your first date forty-six years ago... and next year it will have been forty-five years ago? Right? (I want some of that applemartini you've been drinking! Who knew you got younger drinking that stuff?)

It's only a date on the calender, just another day. It doesn't make you any older or wiser, just better and sexier.

Unlistedone....lets get your math straight here. I had my first date "36" years ago ....and next year it will be "35" years. Yup now thats correct! I don't think the appletinis have anything to do with this, but maybe I should have another one just to make sure. Care to join me???

Shutterbug....you do know just the right thing to say. I know it is only a day on the calander...and truly it doesn't bother me. But it has become a great joke in my family that I am stopping at 49, so I have to continue on with that!

Polly....first of all, there's no way that you even look 60. So, I will be glad to help you never turn 61. Now, go to your profile, and turn back the year right now, so now you are 59, and next month you will turn 60. hehe But honestly, there is nothing wrong with any age being here....especially you! You are such a vital part of this community.

Sorry Angel, wasn't thinking straight. Too sleep, I guess. I do a lot of that right now. Pass the appletini, please.

Feb. 27th POLLY!!!! See, I haven't forgotten!!!

And Angel, could I answer Polly too? Polly, I agree with Angel on this one. And from a man's point of view... OH Yeah... I would be happy to get physically and spiritually turned on by you, Jeanna, waggy, and whoever else was there!!! You may be my senior by a few years, but you still have a lot to offer.

Thanks Angel, luv ya, birth month girl!

I need to read these blogs more often. If I don't peek in every day I miss something. Honey, you're not getting older. Just like a fine wine you aquire a more complex flavor with every year that passes. To hell with the appletinis, I want a drink of that wine!

Unlistedone...you need to get some sleep. More sleep, less appletini. We need you to get your strength back up and your health restored. ~hugs~ ~big hug~

Vatraveler....stop by whenever you can. I'm not too sure a "complex" flavor is a good thing! lol

Angel... complex flavors are certainly a good thing and what's even more, the older a fine wine gets the more valuable it becomes. The fine wine analogoy can only be carried so far though. Once you open that old bottle of fine wine and tke a sip you really have little else that you can do but drink the whole darn bottle. Also, when the wine is corked up for so long there is a real risk of it turning to vinegar and you don't learn that until you open the bottle.

With my version of the story you can open the bottle whenever you wish and dispense a sip. Every time there is a subtle change in the bouguet and flavor, but from your bottle never a hint of vinegar. However, the greatest thing, in this analogy is that the bottle is completely full every time you open it.

Are you willing to pop your cork for me?

Vatraveler...you been sipping that wine already? I'll quote you a line from a song in Chicago...
"I don't pop my cork for every guy I see"
da da da dadadada!
"Hey big spender, Spend a little time with me"

I am not one who has ever been bothered by my age, but when the big 5 -0 loomed ahead of me, I just dreaded it. The birthday itself was depressing as hell, as was the next month or so. Then one day I thought "I am going to give myself permission to do anything in the world during this year." Anything. No ethical concerns, no 'what would people think's, no second thoughts. And you know what? The dread VANISHED. I never really ended up doing anything that wild (actually 51 got a little crazy) but it was just what I needed to 'flip the switch.'

I just turned 52 and to be totally honest, this has been my favorite decade so far! And I've liked them all.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

1hotwahine....what a great way to get out of that slump! And you still never did anything that you regretted. I think that our attitude has a lot to do with how happy we are in the long run.
