"For all you dog lovers, the movie ALPHA is a nice change from all of the Kid-related "movies" .  I recommend it along with Christopher Robin, as two movies that ADULTs might  find enjoyable."

"If you are tired of violence, shootings and car chases in the movies, I can recommend seeing CHRISTOPHER ROBIN.    It is as much, or more , for adults, than for children, but they might enjoy it, too.  "

Re-marrying after the death of your spouse is a good thing

God realized that Adam was lonely and that man was not meant to live alone.  so God created Eve from Adam. People who remarry  happily live longer than those who sit and pine.See More

Hi Don,  I'm not sure how this comment wall works, but sure, it would be nice to chat with you. Ha ha, no one is too old! We all are in this together. It will be a year since my dear Dave died on April 30th. So it feel both like forever and also like it was just yesterday. I feel like I've come through the very worst, and I hope that is true. 

I'm a full time rv'er so I am presently in New Mexico. I'll be in Denver on Easter to visit with my brother for a week. BTW, I'm 74, so I hope I can stay healthy for a few more years as I love this life!

You must have been pretty young if you are a WWII vet. My dad was a vet and he was born in 1916. Anyway, send me another note! Would love to chat with you. ~ Alexandra

Don, I read about your accident and broken ribs on the "40's'  group page... I am so sorry to hear that you fell while biking!  My husband broke his ribs from  fall. The first few days were the worst then he started to feel better ... Hope you feel better soon!
