I am 72 years young, married to my first love for 52 years. We live in Maine, VACATIONLAND. We came here from England and intended to stay just 2 years. We have stayed here 51 years in the same city and have been very happy here. Our sons had to move away from here alas to find work. That gives us two places we need to go to visit. Our other son is in upstate New York. He is the closest but you cannot get there from here in the winter. There is just too much snow in the White and Green ...

Summer we try to catch up with the grandchildren.

Fitness Minutes: 181,448

My Goals:
My goal is to be as healthy, fit and happy as possible. I like to see places in Maine in our small Motor Home and drive it as long as I can.

My Program:
I have always tracked food due to allergies so that goal is almost met. Improving my fitness (after a back injury cramped my style) is a little harder. I use my stepper to stregthen my leg that was adversely affected from the surgery. I love to walk outdoors in the summer. In the winter I have to overcome my fear of falling on ice so I walk on the treadmill daily.

Personal Information:
My name is Pat my mother was Nora, hence Noraspat. I was born during World War 2 in England. My mother, brother and I were homeless till I was about 10 years old. I never met our father. Our mother always told us. We will be Clean, Honest and you will both be well educated. That was the way it was. We were poor and happy living with any relative who would take us in for a while.

Other Information:
My husband and I rent movies, nothing nasty we lived with enough nasty in our childhood during the war. We like comedy and old classic Mystery. We miss Alistair Cooke masterpiece, the newer ones are often not as good as the older ones, times change and I do not. I ran an alterations shop in town for 24 years and loved doing it. The boys are in Upstate NY, California and Nevada and I miss them a lot.

This short story is a very good lesson and should really made us think twice about the daily happenings in our lives as we deal with others!

Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I'm working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said,"Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile."

I hope your memories bring a big smile to you my friend.

Just read the second post. You can feel sad but you didn't let her down. You have no control over what the weather does or different events. It will turn out okay. Could be even better then you hoped. Wait until the right timing. HUGS

I do understand Pat. It is hard. My DH is in good enough shape that I can leave for a period of time with no worries, at least as much as possible. I hope to go see my sister for about two weeks this spring (if it ever happens to become spring) or in the fall. GC are precious and keeps us "young" inside. I do hope you get to make your journey. Be safe. HUGS
