HELLO BLOG WORLD

I am brand new to the blog world. I love the fact that the older generation no longer has to be shut-in unless they just want to be. Some seniors are afraid of the internet, but others are very active in this rapid communication that can be not only about bad things but good things too.

My husband and I grew up with the understanding that at a certain age this is what you are expected to do. No more. Now seniors can do whatever they feel they are big enough to do.

I would enjoy hearing from other seniors who are retired military wives, love dogs, like exercise, and love being alive today in this scary but wonderful world.

Sweetthing -- You have a blog! This is about THE most exciting new development in the 'Sphere in ages.

I'm not a senior or military wife (one day, maybe to both), and as you know, not a big fan of exercise either, but I love being alive in this scary but wonderful world.

You are so blogrolled...and linked to (when I get re-charge and write another post, eventually)...and more than anything, loved to pieces.

One of my favorite neighbors is 81 years old and a huge internet fan. She's always up till 2 or 3am surfing and emailing and having a blast.

Whyever not?
