    Leave out the bad parts…wait, there’d be nothing left!

    Good morning, LB.
    We still have two dogs, and they keep each other company.

    She could always write, “She spent the first 1500 years sowing wild oats and the next 150 praying for crop failure.”

    It would cost her a fortune to put all her 1500 year
    events in a newspaper.

    MARG! I got my cat’s ashes back from the Vet’s
    today. One of my other cats is 15 but so far is
    in good health. Did you have your dog cremated
    too?

    Yes, and she’s buried in the backyard next to our other dog, who died in April. He died in his sleep. I loved that dog, he was so good and so sweet. He was a therapy dog for 5 years.

    George Carlin in a more serious mood:
    .
    Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we’re kids? If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so excited about aging that you think in fractions.
    “How old are you?” “I’m four and a half!”
    .
    You’re never thirty-six and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key.
    .
    You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.
    “How old are you?” “I’m gonna be 16!”
    You could be 13, but hey, you’re gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life ! You become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!
    .
    But then you turn 30. Oooohh… what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There’s no fun now, you’re just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong? What’s changed?
    .
    You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’re PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone.
    But! wait! You MAKE it to 60. You didn’t think you would! So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE IT to 60. You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it’s a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!
    .
    You get into your 80s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn’t end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; “I Was JUST 92.”
    .
    Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. “I’m 100 and a half!”
    May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!

    With 1500-plus years of mischief to cover, Broom-Hilda may have to write the world’s longest obituary! But would anyone publish it? —Or would they dismiss it as unbelievable fantasy?

    Broomie already looks like she met up with the grim reaper.

    …at her age, I doubt she has much to worry about.
