Yes, It CAN (Will?) Happen to You...

May 13, 2011 by

Sure, we’re all fun and fab and over 40 (or 50, or 60).  But, age isn’t just a number.  It’s a reality, and our bodies have their own agenda, even with the best of care. As difficult as it may be for independent women, we also have to realize we need help on occasion, especially as we get “old old.” We don’t think “that” will ever happen to us – falls, dementia, fading sight, just plain old age – but if we live long enough it will, in some form or fashion. Even Betty White moves slower than she used to…and I’ve been told bladder control is one of the first things to go.  (Here’s an idea –  thong Depends in designer colors!) Are you still reading? Or have I totally bummed you out? ...

Ohhh … So THAT’S Why (I’m Not Married)...

Mar 2, 2011 by

If you are like me, you have some friends who you intangibly just sense will not get married, at least any decade soon. You can sit around a table at lunch and know that wherever they are in the dating cycle, be it flirting, passion or boredom, it’s almost mute to talk about because they will be back around again. And again. I’m also in this “mortally single” class of woman myself. From observation I have deduced that this plight is not founded on looks or physical type. It is not geographical location. It is not even a specific career or education, though most mortally single women I know are smarter than the average bear. I have never been able to really put it into words very well, but read two blog articles today...

Beyond Giggles To Laugh Out Loud LOL!...

Feb 18, 2011 by

Dear Lisa, This is the first time I have ever written to an author..so here I go ….I picked up your book serendipitously while traveling yet again on one of my many speaking tours this week about “What Women Want”...and was astounded by your book “Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog”. My personal theme song BTW. I was also born in 1955, am divorced twice and have too many dogs…Your stories made me laugh , cry and I felt like we were 1955 year old soul sisters throughout the book.  We have so many crazy traits in common: 1. I too work at home and write a ton 2. No bras except for public appearances and they never fit right. Was rolling on the floor over Spanks references…I had a trial pair...

Fat Is The New Thin

Feb 15, 2011 by

We’ve all heard the buzz. 50’s are the new 40’s. 40’s are the new 30’s. Cougars are the new wasted floozies …But if you really are keen you have seen … FAT is the NEW THIN! That’s right. Tides have rolled in for the rolley and the polley. Our basic human mating preference social structure has made a definite twist. To understand this new paradigm we need to break down the sexes into their respective categories as classified by their opposites. You see, we have three types of men: You have your Average Joes, your Chubby Chasers, and your 3-V men. Average Joes are just that, they follow the norm. Chubby Chasers, well, they have been ahead of the curve. And the much celebrated 3-V’s (that stands for vjay-jay is vjay-jay is vjay-jay )...
