    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    but it still beats the alternative! and I am saying that while recovering from a simultaneous attack of acute pancreatitis and a kidney infection that cut short my vacation in Spain with my daughter--waah waaah, enough of the pity party

    Oh Boy, do I relate to that !!! I just turned 77 last October and now I have arms like flying squirrels, hair where I never had it before, and no hair where there once was. Every morning when I look in the mirror I wonder where in the world that young and perky girl went, and who replaced her with this old, saggy-eyed, gray headed, old woman staring back at me....
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    I feel your pain - I'm with you! The brain is definitely younger than that old lady I see in the mirror!
