Peter always said, that he is only half of one. I was the other half! So, what am I now? A lonely widow!
Actually, living on my own is not all bad. Some doctors, that I saw recently, told me, I could live to be 100.
Is it possible to love life that much, that one would wish to live for that long? After all, it is very unlikely, that a one hundred year old would still have any kind of partner: Just memories, memories . . . .

I've lived in Australia since 1959 together with my husband Peter. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I started blogging because I wanted to publish some of my childhood memories. I am blogging now also some of my other memories. I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it. Peter, my husband, is publishing some of his stories under berlioz1935.wordpress.com

HA! I have CorningWare like that and some that is called Spice of Life…but they are very used and very old and have some not-removable stains on them. So I doubt they are worth anything.
I had a uncle that lived to be 107. My mom made it to 97. My mother-in-law died at 95. After watching what they went through…and they were actually very healthy people…I don’t want to live that long. Just watching them deal with eyesight failing, hearing failing, hard to get around safely, etc., was tough. My mom would “complain” to her doctor and he’d say, “The human body is not meant to live as old as you already are.” 🙂 Ha! 🙂
Yes, hold to those good memories and smile!
(((HUGS))) ❤️ 🙂
Thanks, Carolyn. Your comments are always uplifting. Yes, thank you very much!
HUGS from me too! Uta 🙂
You’re welcome, Uta! 🙂
I think we just take one day at a time and find joy in that day. To wake up in the morning is a blessing that must not be wasted. 🙂 My parents were told I would not live beyond 1 year…and a bunches of years later, I am still here! 🙂 😀
Yes, this is amazing, Carolyn! 🙂
You are right: Every day is a blessing. 🙂
