I have been around for a fairly long time even though I believe myself young. Well not so much now as I am noticing signs of aging. Anyway, I am not quite mid sixties so I guess older than most. You could say I am middle age if I live to be a hundred and twent-seven. I wonder what the average blogger’s age is?
I’ve been a nurse for forty two years and starting to feel a little like a dinosaur though until now I have been regarded by most as young thinking.
I have been married. I am not married now. Have two of the world’s coolest sons and two of the worlds coolest grandsons age seven and three. My daughter in law and future daughter in law are the best.
My family are friends and my friends family. All in all we have a pretty good time.

      Hi Moe,

        I asked about blog(s) because you ‘like’ liked to a gravatar, not to here, and it shows about six blogs. I picked this one to visit because it was first! Wonder why that is? Maybe I should go look at my own!

    Chris, I hope I didn’t burn any bridges by failing to follow last week! I thought I did, but I guess I was literally upside down when our paths crossed over the Daily Prompt: “Take Two” that I forgot. Sooo–take two. I am following now.

    Chris, Have you been on the Next Great Think Blog Hop. It is a tag team kind of thing for bloggers who are also authors or wannabe authors. You have to answer ten questions and tag at least three people. I so want you to write a book that I can tout and once think you said you were going to and you did participate a bit in the November write your novel affair.

    Let me know if your are up for this if you haven’t already done one and I will send you details.

      Hi Kat, I am not aware of the Great Think Blog Hop but have been spending limited time on line these days due to other problems so not sure if I can do it justice right now. Also I have pretty much decided I am a reader and not a writer which is a little sad but also very freeing. Thanks for thinking of me though my friend.

    Hi Chris. Am so glad to see you! am also glad you liked “At the Dollar Store,”:altho, I have to wonder if it didn’t just write itself, you know? Just so surreal. But these things, they happen, I guess.
    Thanks again, Leslie

      I am glad you checked back in..it has been awhile and the summer has been a little crazy so it has been hard to stay in touch..I am looking forward to reading more of you. I move tomorrow to another city although it is just as bad moving 50 feet as 50 miles! Next week I will catch up more. Welcome back! Started the day by sleeping in but most is done..now just have a few small things and try to clean up the just nuked look. Wanted to take a minute to answer comments and thank you for reading! Okay am procrastinating..but what a pleasant way to do it!

      I enjoy your site very much..a couple more weeks and I will be all moved and can savor my blog reading time more! Yes I am very young for my age..which makes it difficult to meet anyone with partner potential….good thing I get along well with me :)

    It’s nice to know that 63-64 is middle age. That means at 52 I’m still a youngster. lol! I’ve been looking around and enjoying your blog today. Thank you for visiting my blog so I could return the visit. :)

    I’m heading rapidly for 60. Only feel old when I ache and my memory is playing up (which actually is a lot of the time!) Most bloggers… I think younger people are using Facebook and Twitter more, and older folks like us are blogging.

      May 26, 2011 @ 20:40:52

      Since I am staying here for the week have missed my daily swims and that makes the aches worse..There are quite a selection of some of the younger group that actively use twitter and face book. I don’t know where people find time to twitter..it seems like it would take a lot of time…all about energy I guess…and I sure have less now than I used to LOL

I appreciate that you were willing to share your thoughts with me, and that my post touched you in some small way. Please come over and visit me on my blog anytime.

    Oh Chris – apologies. I read somebody’s comment and thought you were 67. You are just a very young chick. What are you doing cavorting with all those old people?

    Well having been a blogger for about six weeks I can tell you about widgets. On the theme you have the option of adding widgets. Go into the dashboard and then appearance. It gives you a variety of widgets one of which will be sign up or subscribe to my blog or some such.

    Give it a try and then we can both reward out selves with a cup of coffee although it’s 5.10 pm so almost wine-time. And thanks again for the plug.

    Apologies – I said I had subscribed to your blog – meaning I was just about to do just that, but can’t find a sign up box. HELP!!


    • bridgesburning
      Apr 07, 2011 @ 23:16:08

      I wish I could tell you how to subscribe but being fairly new and not at all techie I don’t know. I have that problem with other sites too. Some are easy to see a subscribe button and some are not. So I brought up my site and could not find it. Geez!

    Thank you. I am a new blogger – only started on March 1 – but I love the blogging community. I have subscribed to your blog. And more and more of my day is being taken up with reading blogs. Well I could be addicted to alcohol, drugs or ……

    Hi Chris – if you are ‘middle aged’ at 67 then I am a dinosaur at 73. Anyway, I don’t feel dinosauric. You might be interested in reading my blog on Chronology vs Biology – http://growingyoungereachday.wordpress.com/2011/03/03.
    I am glad I found your blog and will continue to read it. Keep feeding the humor, there is some in most situations.l

    Hi. I am 38. Even though, for the most part, I still feel “young”, my 15yr. old is always saying, “mom, you’re old!” (Thanks son, love you too!)I have a couple of years ago, tried, haha…roller skateing, don’t know why, but I have since found out, I’m not 16 anymore!! lol…Love your blog!

      I tried roller blaring at your age..helmet, skates, knee and elbow pads..all I could do was cling to a brick wall..but it was fun trying..almost tried bungee jumping ten years after that but am still working up the courage!
      Thanks for the compliment and enjoying you too!

      I have seen a lot Sana as we all in health care have. You might enjoy my recounting an experience entitled Was it a Dream. It’s all true and brought God even closer to my life.
