Today our progeny and their own salute us, revere us ,cherish us, treasure us, thank us for the gift of life and learning to be the humans we have molded them to be.. But today I wish to salute my own flesh and blood and their flesh and blood and tell you I revere you, cherish you, treasure you, love you and thank you for the gift of motherhood.. To the bond of mother and child.. Priceless beyond measure..
Before you read this—take a moment and think about someone in your life..A mom..sister–aunt–freind..who would rather not be single…Someone who pines for it more at Christmas ..Perhaps you will understand this post a bit more…Many embrace and thrive like crazy in singlehood—and GOOD FOR THEM! :))))) They are very fortunate to have that mindset..Trust me. I wrote this last year and feel exactly the same this year. ~~ For you who feel I need to be grateful for my life as it is..and stop concentrating on finding a nice companion. This is a perfect status that nailed it..:))) The photo of the couple is noce but the one with the words says it all. Christmas is a particularily challenging time of year for a single. Especially for someone like me who loves love and the romance of such an all encompassing and beautiful holiday like Christmas which affects our lives in 100 different and unique ways almost daily for weeks on end.. It IS a fabullous time for couples, isn’t it, my friends?? I bet you love it, too. But doin’t really think about the 100 ways it affects you–almost daily.. 99% of you in my crcle are a half […]
Oh my! What a bad representative of we Mature Single Ladies I am! My alter ego and owner of this Author’s website, Pammy, has been swept up in life since my last blog in March, as have I. Did yuh miss me?? She has deemed me an interview so I have fodder for this blog. I’ll be using her and HER destination as an example of what we Golden Girls and sometimes Boys do for fun-in-the-summertime. So as you don’t think my blogging is biased, I wish to warn you that, in my daily gad-abouts I’m more likely to be yakking with the female persuasion to keep my ear to the ground as to what’s happening in our world today, so you will see us gals represented more fully than you gents as you read the latest episode. Started in June, finished in AUGUST. EGADS! Life DOES get in the way.. As for Pammy, thank GOODNESS she has not given me my pink slip or golden parachute (as if!) for not doing my job of posting Monthly, as the title of the page suggests. After all, I LOVE writing stuff- about-how-I-feel-about-daily-life-as-a sensual-senior thingy and would hate to lose the chance […]
We are on the road again, my alter-ego and my favorite author, Pammy and I. She just now completed a 49 day, 20 stop-to-see-loved-ones trip across 4 provinces. And now she rests in Halifax. A three month sojourn? Only God knows? She, too, is seeking. Searching. Attempting to discover her place. Unsettled and unsatisfied with the status quo. The big questions of today on my Monthly Bluster are… Are we alone in this “is the grass-is-greener down the road” thingy? Is it gender specific? Are the male of the species just as —antsy? Is this restlessness and sense of urgency plaguing all we single humans-of-an-era? It seems so. But I will add this interesting bit to the mix in my monthly observations.. A much loved ex of Pammy’s just recently (in the grand scheme of life) found his life-mate, got married and has embarked on a new calling. He has returned to the classroom. In a seminary. To become an Anglican Priest of all things. All these life-changing events at 59-60 years old! So—SEE? It HAPPENS! Frankly—I don’t see this unsettled hand-wringing about the future as we nervous Nellies see it in all these “Celebrating 25-30-35 years of Wedding Bliss” […]
Naomee the Sensual Senior..Monthly Bluster…Birds are doin’ it! #12 My eyes. My EYES! Pammy (my alter ego), what the heck am I supposed to do with your directive this month? You want me to pen a Bluster about that thing that’s allll around us, no matter where we turn?? You might as well ask me to write a “Milking a cow for dummies.”” Or technical CliffsNotes on building a frigging Porsche from the wheels up. What in the HELL do I—ME—Naomee the so-called sensual senior know about the horizontal mambo? I’m outta PRACTICE, GF!!! I think I must have COBWEBS gathering slowly in the nether region, for Gods sakes!! It’s EVERYWHERE, being spring and all. The sounds.. The sights.. The innuendo… It’s even on MENUS in trendy restaurants now.. TV commercials are FLAGRANTLY sexual now. Never MIND the afternoon soaps. Like HOT! HOT!! HOT!! Fact is—no matter where U-turn— S.E.X. is in the air. Everybody is HOT for it.. It’s almost scoop-able… The pheromones are almost smell-able!! Nipples are hard on the females—headlights are blaring BRIGHT!! Packages are—well—packages!! Right there nekid to the friggin’ naked EYE!! The boys are walking around in public READY for ACTION! As Pammy would say—Holy […]
I write –because I do it well. And for many other reasons. Y’all are much too busy to view my list so let’s stick to one today, shall we? I write because we who are content creators have no choice. We must do so. It is a compulsion. A given. An addiction. My addiction is the same-same as you who put brush to canvas.. Or turn your foot just a tiny bit to make that dance unforgettable. And you who burn the midnight oil to make that melody so precious that 100 years from now they will be listening to your ‘baby’ as it tinkles or booms. Couple that with lyrics that evoke such emotion as to make people cry as they drive down the freeway and crank up the radio and you’ve got a masterpiece. YOUR masterpiece. That you tore from your gut. The power within us, in designers of magic, could fuel a rocket ship when we create! YOU know of what I speak! SO, back to my list and one of my top three reasons I write. It’s pretty basic and lame and mushy but—it is to provide the opportunity to make memories with your significant man/lady. There ain’t NOTHIN’ more beautiful as a couple than sharing those quiet, […]

Come on Prince Charming..I am waittiinnggggg..or not?? Don’t need a fella to be a Boho Gypsy Princess, after all…Look what whoever it is is MISSING!!!!.:)))))))))))))
Hey there, folks. My name is Naomee, Pamela’s alter-ego. Her Mirror. And I still do the sex thing. Do I have your attention?? Right, then! Let me introduce myself more fully. I am PROUD to say I am a part of a gigantic entity out there in Good ole North America. The BOOMERS!! We gotta big voice and a well-earned and deserved big presence. And we’re getting right ticked at all this ‘those damned, selfish boomers” bombs being thrown about so loosely!! Like the ‘TTUDE we are getting. CHA!! OK, so we lived well but, HEY! You kids who are dissing us and saying we spoiled everything?? Let me make ‘mee’ perfectly clear here. WE were the ones who paid for you EDGE-U-MICATION. Remember that. And housed, clothed, spoiled and fed you and took you to every ballet class and sports tourney going. AND you had a purebred dog–a real purebred before all these doodly things came along. And we WORKED like dogs –double income-to make SURE you had it ALL. Now that I have my rant done and you know which side my bread’s buttered on–back to MEE.. I am a 5’10″kinda willowy, curvy but not skinny sexy Momma–sexy for me AGE, they say. (Don’t know […]
