Well, I wrote the first post on my blog, and nothing happened. I guess that means I can continue to write, and the world will continue to rotate.

I just taught my 4 year old grandson, Nick, how to play Fish. Of course, MawMaw always lets the little ones win. Now this next part has never happened before, and I've done the same thing with 6 other grandchildren before him. ANYway, after winning several games during a week's time, he decided that he would let me win. I asked him how he was going to let me win. Without a moment's hesitation, he said that he would only play twice, and I would play (call) the rest of the time. Each time he gave me a card that I asked for, he said, "Here you are, my lady." When I had to "fish" a couple of times in a row, he leaned over and kinda whispered, "Ask for a nine (or a six or whatever card he had) What a kid!

This is my first post, and it's pretty darn scary for an old lady. I thought this would be a good day to start because today I have just been told that I an enrolled in Medicare. I think this is the last milestone that I have left. Yea! I am officially old.

At least it didn't sneak up on me. For the last few months insurance companies have reminded me daily with letters saying that I would need supplemental insurance to go with Medicare. I had never felt so loved and cared for in my life. My husband explained that it would all stop in a couple of months and that they only wanted to sell me insurance, not be my friend. That can't be right. I'm sure these companies are interested in me as a person. I'm such a wonderful, kind, funny, generous, caring human being.

Having said that (my being so wonderful and all), I actually have been looking forward to reaching the age where I could be a real b**ch and not get in trouble for it. Mom is eighty two and gets away with saying all kinds of things. We all just say, "Bless her heart."

Well, I guess I'll close so I can get this first (and maybe last) posting under my belt.
