Your article made me feel better! [“Not pretty: Beauty contestant has brain glitch”] Many seem to equate Age with stupidity … now, I know better!

Because I am 82, some see the need to bring me in from the rain – but it ain’t so!

I am working on my sixth book. My third was featured in an article published by the National Office on Aging in Washington, D.C., in its publication, Innovation. I also write freelance articles.

You wouldn’t believe the silly statements I get; they think I am swimming in the Alzheimer’s pond simple because I am old. I like my age and my life. I might be in that pond later, but for now I have many ideas to work on.

Have a great day! I’m planning on it!
