This past weekend was my 50th high school reunion. I chose not to go because I am high risk, COVID phobic, and not comfortable in (unmasked) crowds.
One of my friends sent me the reunion group photo and I thought, ‘Holy @#$%! These people are old!’. Oops, ‘old’ also applies to me (according to my husband)!
I happen to think my close friends look terrific (see post photo), but some were hard to find in the reunion photo😊!
As one of my pals said to me, “I hate feeling younger than I look”!
As you may have picked up from my previous posts, I am anti-ageist.
I am also not really a big fan of this 91-year-old actor/writer/director, but I do appreciate his ‘credo’:

While I agree with his sentiment, it can be a tough one to follow as health issues (and a pandemic) take more of center stage in my life.
Since it is football season, I am going with Team Maria. Any way you slice it, I am in my fourth quarter, which I am arbitrarily calling 68-90. Maybe I will get to play in overtime, but I am not necessarily going to count on it.
So, I continue to think about how I want to spend my 4th quarter. I think it is important to end the quarter with a touch down or with at least some points on the board.
