    Then that's where I'll be! I have pet allergies. I can do laundry and/or dusting. I like to dust and am finding out that isn't a chore a lot of people like.

    That's funny because I don't have animal allergies, but dusting or even picking up a cluttered room sends me straight to my inhaler.

    I just turned 60. In anticipation of that event, I stopped coloring my hair a year ago. A huge bonus is that I'm far more likely to be offered a seat on a busy train. It really bothered me the first time a young woman offered me her seat, a few years ago, because I was still offering mine to old folks. Over time I came to enjoy being able to sit and read or do Sudoku during the commute. No physical need to sit, just self-indulgence. I guess I'm going to be one of those entitlement seniors, LOL.

    I like the part about the parents doing all the worrying for you. I think that is why I am so fond of Christmas now. Reminds me of being safe.
    You can do it!

    When I was a teen riding the city bus to high-school, I told my friends I wanted to be a blue haired-Grandma who smelled like White Shoulders Cologne ... like the ladies sitting in front of us.

    I don't color my hair anymore. I did before cancer and then my hair grew back without any gray. Now it is slowly finding it's way back, but at 56 I feel I've earned it. I like to think it blends in with the sun streaks I get in the summer and isn't that noticeable. My mom always notices and complains about it. She says that my gray hair makes her feel old. She's 81 and dyes her hair with shoe polish.

    Too funny ... but resourceful, I guess.

    I wonder what other things she dual purposes.

    She's a redhead - dark red, not carrot top. She claims there just aren't any hair dyes that replicate her color and the shoe polish does.
