Older than dirt some days. Thankfully, I've lived longer than my father who died at age 55. He was so young...at least in my eyes. I was so young when he died.

I hope to live a very long time and be a help to our children and a fun grandmother to their children.

My standard is Buck's mother who is 93 and can run circles around anyone half her age. What a lady!! She was the mother I always wanted to have. (Another story. I had a VERY dysfunctional childhood.) At least I have had her for over 30 years. Whoppeee!!!

Marge, me too. I think one can tell by my profile that I'm female, live in Florida, have grandchildren and that is probably as much as you want to know.

lulu, I feel as you do re profile and pics on the ww web. There were a few threads, some time ago, re What does your name mean and Are you male or female, don't recall the exact wording. You can probably find it in a search here.

Re profiles, I tried editing/deleting my location, but the message kept reading something like - invalid birthdate (which I left blank), & I couldn't edit. Mods/adminstrators, can someone look into this? TIA.

I posted a pic for about 5 seconds, but had second thoughts & deleted same, in part, because we are visible to the www & some comments/references were not appreciated. I may or may not post my pics again, but ask that member's comments not be a personal critique/personal observations. TIA

Some members are okay with pinpointing down to what city they live in etc. That's up to the individual & their comfort level. Another idea is to hook up with My Space, rather than posting here, and provide a link to same.

I am 39 mother of 3 wonderful daughters, wonderful husband of 15 years.
My husband is a stay home dad, and I work just worked out that way
for us, but I am blessed that one of us are able to be at home raising the
kids.

i have been employeed at the same company for 21 years, boss of 22 people
most of the time i feel my kids are more responsible than the
people that work for me. It is hard to find good help these days. I remember
the good ol days when people took pride in who they were and what they
did.

I hope to retire early, guess I will need to keep playing the lottery

Hey, great to see the Myspace follow-up thread, with members posting their links, pics etc. to Myspace. I signed up, but haven't had a chance to figure it all out, yet.
