I am an "older" woman with breast cancer (I was diagnosed at 65 and am now 66).  I notice that most of the posts seem to be from people younger than I am (often by quite a bit...).   I'd love to "talk" with others my age, exchange info about their diagnoses, effects on their lives, etc.   I see that there is a forum for young women.

Someone suggested that maybe it's that older people aren't so computer-savvy or aren't used to being in online discussion groups.   However, for those who are, it would be great.

Good morning, ladies. It is 54 degrees and going to 80 for a pleasant day. DH had a cluster headache again this morning. He can't get into see the neurologist until Tuesday the 13th. After he has one he sleeps, so late breakfast.

I have to go to the drug store and post office, then catch up on some chores for today.

Sandy, I didn't get a chance to thank you for sharing in regards to "Easter". My extended family is Asian and semi-practicing Hindu. Before COVID, we all would get together and yes, bite some chocolate bunny butt. LOL. When there are weddings and funerals, both "Eastern" and "Western" services are performed.

We had a thunderstorm about 2 am. The loud rumble of thunder was continuous for five or ten minutes accompanied by flashes of lightning but no close strikes, fortunately. I went back to sleep but awoke earlier than usual.

I have an appointment for a hair trim this afternoon and have almost decided to go with the "transition to gray" highlight.

Carole, we had a storm here too although it was more rain I think. I don't always hear the thunder if it is a quieter kind. With hearing aids I tend to hear the loudest sounds around me and that is usually the tv. Anyway some little bit of sun this morning, but more rain expected. Cooler too, of course. Not always likable but not so bad considering the late winter snowstorm and brrr temps then. It will stay much warmer now but for a while we will have to have rain storms I think. Just crossing my fingers that no tornados or straight line winds are a part of this yr.'s transition from Spring to Summer.

Ah, yes, Sandy, Retirement. When I met Gil in 2000, he told me he was committed to write five more research papers with colleagues around the world and that would take two years. But, as I should have known, it's almost impossible for a committed doctor or a scientist to retire. He was teaching then at U of Iowa, moved here in 2001, was offered a teaching job at U of C and at Northwestern. Twenty years later he's still writing and publishing on the group of 450million years ago fossils where he's the world expert. But we have had time to travel and, it is good, to have an absorbing interest.

If you ever go to Key West, check out the Gardens Hotel on Trip Advisor. It's a 17 room beauty, KW style, so its not like a Ritz or Fairmont. Just lovely, low key, perfect location. And Key West has some wonderful restaurants, away from the tourist traps. Can barely wait for next week to go to Louie's Back Yard and Sarabeth again. The caveat for KW, though, is we walk everywhere, because our mobility hasn't been much affected. You can walk the whole island from one end to the other in about 30 minutes. It's fairlydifficult to have a car there because of lack of parking.

I enjoyed watching the 3 night PBS special on the life of Ernest Hemingway. If Ken Burns produces it I usually like it. Like many writers & gifted, a curios, sad, brilliant self-centered life. I have read little of his work but am inspired to take a closer look.

I also recently liked a similar Flannery O'Connor special. I initially became interested in her by reading her letters and the fact that she died at 39 of Lupus, before there were adequate treatments ( not that they are yet good enough).

Getting warmer now and we just ordered new cushions for our deck set. Cant wait to start earing and sitting outside again.

Years ago we visited the Hemingway home in Key West, over run with 6 toed cats. When I was majoring in English in college, my professors were never big fans of Hemingway. Faulkner was more admired, as I recall. We watched the first installment of the Burns documentary and are set up to record the follow up installments. I was always turned off by Hemingway's macho personality. I may download a couple of his novels on my Kindle and read or re-read them.

Key West is trying to limit the cruise traffic but the state is opposing their efforts.

My hair stylist yesterday did a highlight on my hair that was supposed to help transition into the natural gray. I was a little shocked when I looked in the mirror. I am now silver and gold, as some of the colored hair is still there. I know some of my golf friends who are committed to "color until you die" will not like it. If I decide by next fall that I don't like being gray, I can always go back to color. I did that once before, when I was 70.

I may do some shopping today at a couple of stores if the weather cooperates. Right now it's looking like rain may be on the way.

Running late today and what should be a beautiful day. Warm and sunny. Maybe night-time rain though. Karen, I too am wishing you well on your oncology visit. Nice to only have curiosity questions. That is progress.

Hope things go well in your transition Carole. I guess like so much of life there are steps to getting to a comfy place with hair and what we do with it. Some of my friends are making the trtansition to grey. So far I continue to not need color -- but I will likely always need a perm for the body. My hair has always been think and fine. I thought after chemo ( I looked forward to it really ) I would have maybe what I always wanted -- thicker, and and a nice color and curly. Nope !! You might know -- I had more of the same -- just healthier over all for having lost it and its being brand new growth.

Interesting times. We finally made the switch to Hulu yesterday. Hate to admit it turned into an all day chore. BIL came to help as he has preformed the feat many times on his own systems at his house and the other brother's tvs. as well. At one point he used his I-phone for part of the set up and we got thrown into hours of work as the program set-up took his personal amazon acct. and even to the point of showing the last four of his credit card. I thanked him for the wonderful gift we couldn't keep but oh the trials getting him de-installed and us back in. Finally had to spend several hours on the phone with a lady from Amazon and then she in turn had to three-way us with someone techinical from Hulu. Oh my -- I bet BIL will never use his own phone again if he is helping anyone. Almost 6 hrs. worth of having to re-enter a lot of info with the fire-stick til' hands and fingers were stressed from so much time having to do this. We were though at last successful. It all looks good and I think we will be pleased. We will still get all our local channels and the things we were regulars watching before we went to just 10 channels on our Spectrum service. We can now quit that part ( tv ) of our Spectrum.

I don't remember reading Hemingway in my lit classes. I got less interested in reading him after reading "The Paris Wife." He seems such a nasty man. Just started "Tsarina" by Ellen Alpsten about Catherine the Great. Think I will like it. Her prose is beautiful and historical fiction is my favorite genre.

Hope you got all your questions answered, Karen.

I didn't color again after chemo. Now sort of a mousy brown with some grey streaks with a bald crown. Definitely a genetic thing - Mom had virtually no hair when she died and I just noticed a large bald spot on my cousin. Hers is farther forward than mine but about the same size. I just keep adding to my hat collection.

Happy weekend everyone. I'm still masking but very grateful I'm now 2 weeks post second vaccine.

We had a humdinger of a storm starting after midnight and it is just now passing on to the east. DH rolled down the hurricane shades covering the outside of the windows before we went to bed so the house was like a cave when I got up this morning.

I do a double take when I look into a mirror. The silvery hair is a shocker. My mother still had a full head of hair when she passed away at 96 and I have very thick hair with wave on the sides and curly in the back.

No plans for today except the possibility of going to Belk's (five minutes away or less) and doing a walk though the displays of shorts. I really like the pull on style with flat elastic at the waist and fitted at the hips. The length just above the knees. I guess what we called Bermuda shorts. The fitting rooms are closed so you have to make purchases and try on the clothes when you get home. I went to Kohl's yesterday to buy underwear and was shocked at the prices.

I am enjoying the "cat " talk. Wren, I think polydactal often can be found in Maine Coon cats. To me though -- the number of toes doesn't matter much -- I tend to love them all. It is though I admit an interesting feature.

Carole, I think we got some of your storm last night. Started with thunder and lightning. We had just started to think maybe it would blow over when it finally let loose and rained. We had a fair amt. of wind before the rains came though. Should have known the 'water' part wouldn't really miss us.

I am shocked by a lot of the prices going on today -- especially due to the fact we have had covid during a recession. Guess we all have to just plan more for the things we want or need. We are still busy here trying to figure out all the things we need to sell, donate or otherwise get into someone else's hands. Even though I'm working more than I thought I would it has been so easy to "keep" things solely from feeling that I haven't had the time to carefully consider how I use things so I can decide what really no longer fits our lifestyle. I do think having our family living with us is going to help a lot make those determinations.

I hope some of those higher prices sill stabilize since they seldom go down.

I hope you all have a good Saturday. It is mostly cloudy here. Haven't looked at the weather closely yet -- but I'd rather skip any more rain. Here's hoping.

We had an arborist look at our 125ft Lombardy poplar trees and he was reassuring. He said if the wind was strong enough to blow them down, the roof would blow off first. They were planted in 1946 by the original owner. The arborist said they can live 150 years. The bad news was that the city would never let us cut them down, so the usable size of our lot is decreased. We're trying to sell the house to a developer (whole neighborhood is going that way) and it decreases the price we can get.

The gray streak runs in my partners family. They refer to it as the lightening bolt.

Years ago I dyed my hair a dark maroon, cranberry color. I liked it, but every time I saw myself it gave me a shock. So Carole, I can relate!

Now if I wanted, and was still working, I'd touch up my roots every 2 weeks. Retired going on 7 years, I now see a stylist who does my roots and a hair cut for about the same price I used to pay for a cut, every 4 weeks. It's a win for me! She tells me I'm evenly white at roots. Used to be just crown and side burn area, but I've aged. Such is life!

Happy belated birthday, Judy! My sister (who used to own a cottage on Big Pine before Hurricane Wilma destroyed it) warned me about near-daily torrential rains in the Keys this time of year, so we'd have to plan our walks & meals around that. She'd go with us, except she's deathly allergic to cats. On her rare trips to Chicago, she stays at a hotel in Evanston and can visit me only outdoors. I've read about the polydactyls that they're descended from the "classic" (aka "blotched" or "whorled") tabbies that first came over on the Mayflower. Bob loved Mackinac Island because of all the walking that's necessary due to cars being banned, so the walkability of Key West would be a huge plus for him (as would the indoor reading time made possible by the periods of rain--he hardly ever gets to read for pleasure these days, just CME and medical records).

Had my roots done (and 2" of split ends trimmed off, plus a bang trim) last Tues. Staying blonde for now. I get trimmed & touched up every 3 months or so (about as often as I used to get keratin treatments). My roots are more salt than pepper these days, but still dark enough overall to be somewhat visible. I have a "resistant" silky, straight white streak that we leave white, because people assume it's a highlight for which I paid a fortune. The rest of my grays are wavy-frizzy if left to dry naturally. I notice the thinning has stopped: I seem to be slowly emerging from that prolonged "telogen effluvium" (though never as copious a "fallout" as it was after my pregnancy) phase caused by letrozole. But my hair is still by no means thick. I've stopped getting keratin straightening treatments not only because of the formaldehyde released by the extreme heating, but because my scalp perspires so much at night or with exercise that the salt in the sweat dissolves the keratin so that it doesn't "take," no matter how careful I am about pinning up my hair and using sulfate-and-sodium chloride-free shampoos & conditioners.

For our 50th anniversary coming up at the end of June, our entire guest list would be fully-vaccinated by then (almost all are now, with a couple waiting on their second shots or a few days shy of the magic 2 week post-second-shot mark). The city isn't allowing parties larger than 6 per table indoors or 10 per table outdoors, but we've done multiple-table parties before, pre-pandemic. Hopefully, the limits will have been eased by then--if not, we'll just have it catered at our house (with my sis taking frequent "deck breaks" and wearing a mask indoors against the dander).

I rejoined WW with an online subscription. DH wants to lose weight, too. Like me, he is overweight to an unhealthy level. The WW app is really helpful. I especially like the food scan function. I know dropping lbs won't be easy at our age with slower metabolism and a slower lifestyle than in younger years. But we will make a valiant effort.

One plus for me is that I am able to walk on the street again after a few years when feet issues made me rely on gym cardio.
