Being older, I do a lot of things the old fashioned way.
To find retail stores I still write down directions.

What is something you like to do/have the old fashioned way?



FOR ME.... Hand written letters coming in the mail. Phone conversations rather than texting. Hard covered cooking books and reading books. (Love to see the pictures and feel the pages). Just to name a few.

Great question. I needed some therapy on my legs. The exercises were specific so no variance. Other things its nice to change it up and follow the advice, "Variety is the spice of life".

When you start a plan, do you stick with it, or change it up?

Some people get to read to a dog - who do you read to?



This is a picture of my Grandpuppy Toby. He is such a socializer.

FOR ME..... I've never read to a pet. I used to read stories to the kids at school when I was a Child Care Worker. I read to myself , but not as much as I would like to.

Have you watched any of the wedding celebration of the Duke and Duchess of Sussux's wedding this week-end? What impressed you?



FOR ME... We have pre-taped it so will watch it all when the kids come back from their long weekend. I did watch bits and pieces and found it very dearing. Having the kids particiate was a great and caring idea.

Are you an Early Bird or a Night Owl by nature?




FOR ME.... For the most part.....I'm an early bird. I go to bed earlier than my DH(around 9:30 p.m.) and get up about an hour before him. Usually around 6:00 a.m.
