Quotes du jour/Patricia Routledge

There's more to life in your sixties than some people bargain for.

Of course one thinks about the aging process but it's an attitude of mind. I think if you start giving in to the aches and pains and begin uttering that death phrase, "well, of course, it's my age" then all is lost.

  4. Happy, happy, happy birthday, Nan! Enjoy the celebration of you. And to paraphrase the old BCP birthday prayer, "May your days increase."

    Gorgeous tulips! A present from someone special? Nothing expresses adoration better than flowers....

  11. Having reached 60 last year may I offer my congratulations. When you are forty you feel you don't care what people think of you any more as you have reached the age of maturity. Deep down however I think we still do. BUT at 60 I now KNOW I don't care and it is truly liberating.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
