Hey Paula, You are About to Lose Your Paul

August 2, 2012

About a year ago, Frank came into Susan’s life.  We will call him Paul for obvious reasons.  If any reader doesn’t understand this, he/she is even more intellectually challenged than is this blogger.

The following is an interview with Susan, the heroine  of the Sex and the Sixty (Year Old) series.  Contrary to the title of the post, Susan is not the actual oldest living single.  She has just had a lot of dates.  In fact, if you could stretch out all of her dates end-to-end, they would […]

Susan, immortalized in my many previous Sex and the Sixty Year Old posts, is at it again.  The girl just can’t stay away.  This time, she is trying a new and improved dating site for folks over age 50.  Her primary goal is not to meet men over 50.  It is more about her getting […]

The aging brain is like a GPS.  You know where you are headed, and your brain appears to be perfectly capable of sending you there. But you notice with increasing frequency that you are told to make a right turn, then, when you do, to make a U-turn. You may ultimately get where you want […]
