Friday Recommends – Elderly, Schmelderly

Morgan Mandel surprised me yesterday by putting up my post at Spunky Seniors almost as soon as I sent it to her. It was about my Aunt Ruth, and how she inspired Pearl in “The Dragon of North 24th Street” and Aunt Libby in EEL’S REVERENCE. Check out the other posts there. It makes me proud to be a crone. Not just for women.

I’ve never been on this blog, but I aspire to: WOOF: Women Only Over Fifty. SUCH a fun site! The other day, they had ads from back in the day, with shoes for $1.98. Cute shoes, too.

One I subscribe to by email is Aging Abundantly. It covers the age spectrum from empty nest to eldercare, from being the caregiver to needing one. Since the blogger, Dorothy Sanders, is a woman and since most caregivers are women, the posts tend to be weighted toward women. It isn’t just a single-gender blog, though. Lots of encouragement, advice and strength for everybody of any gender, any age, any stage.

WRITING PROMPT: How old is your main character? What relationship has he or she had with elderly people and/or caregivers?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
