Since re-comitting myself to my blog I made a kind of promise to myself that I would write a post a minimum of every other day. I don't want to promise you or myself even that I will produce one daily as it was that pressure which drove me to the point of sporadic posting which was frankly boring to read and keep track of....more
Lovely senior wants to take you to dinner. Who, me? There must be some mistake.
I keep getting these misdirected emails with the most ridiculous subject lines: Senior Romance, Senior Speed Dating, Senior Single Vacations, Senior Tours and Cruises.
