It seems like you're fine doing your dusting and bathroom scrubbing, but maybe a high school student could hop over that vacuum hose a lot more nimbly than you? FWIW, even though I'm a couple of years younger than you (I'm 62) you can still clean circles around me! Your cleaning prowess puts me to shame...

*What the heck IS the politically correct term for surviving longer than others? I hate trying to figure out the "politically correct" term for some stuff.
There is no politically correct term, I generally say "young lady" or "young gentleman" when referring to them directly. I am a Geriatrics Nurse (and a geriatric nurse) and I care for the Elderly. I really think they don't care much as long as you don't call them late to dinner.

Thanks!!! Yes, Patron will pee on me in delight, I only have to go to the bathroom and come back and he is ecstatic to see me...the degree of excitement IS higher if it has been a while. I think the plea was actually from BossLady who is tired of covering my a work while I am out and she's using the love I have for the Wee Doggie to entice me back.

I'm trying to figure out my new camera's software. It is just different enough from the older model to mess me up. Somehow or another I didn't just import the three test pics into the editing program, I imported every dang picture I had on this computer. And I can't find a way to select all of them to delete them. My older Canon automatically took me to a download screen, then the editing program. Not so with this one.
It's probably too nice out to be messing with this anyway.
