I wasn't quite sure where to post this on the forum as I couldn't see a ' distractions from the pandemic' category. But here is as good as anywhere. Is anyone else missing travel ? As a travel addict of many years standing , during the recent lockdowns I resorted to writing about some of the people. places and events I have encountered while travelling. Result = my first book! Published in March 2021 by Beachy Books. It's called ' Travel Mementos: Personal Stories about Faraway Places' and has received some great reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. Is anyone else doing the same?
Hi, I would like to take a cruise to Iceland on a luxury ship. 12 days. Suites aren't cheap and mostly the single supplement is twice the posted price. So how about a travel buddy. I'm a 65 yr old gal, in good shape. I have a Golden Doodle and we compete in agility. I have been on several cruises and I have traveled extensively. I would like to go this summer. Tell me a little bit about yourself if you are interested. Prefer female.
Hi, new to this site! So I was with a few family members-2 sibs, daughter, nephews,etc. My older brother ( we are all 60's or better) made a rude and mean comment about me in front of everyone, as a joke. My sister laughed out loud, but while I was being put down, the comment was in her favour. I felt embarrassed with my daughter there, in that I felt I was being disrespected and she saw this. This is the norm for my family...for whatever reason, I'm the one who they feel they can disregard I guess. Not sure how to handle this. Should I remove myself from family gatherings, as some of my sibs are toxic to me? I already have done that with 2 so far. Or should I tell my brother how much he hurt me? With my family, if I did that, he would likely just snicker and say OH it was a JOKE! Then they would spread the gossip that I am upset by this and make me the fool. My family as a rule never apologizes, with the exception of a few of us. A large family of 10 sibs. Not sure how to deal with this.

Hey y'all, spring is really blooming here in the carolinas. I have been hiking the trails the last few weeks and have really enjoyed all the growth on display this time of year. I like to hike near along the river. What are your favorite places to hike?
I regularly say "Ooo, it's chilly for June" (when it's cold and not necessarily June!) and consequently both my sons (31 and 29) do too. We'd love to know where it comes from - I know I picked it up from my mother but I can't ask her as, sadly, she's no longer with us. Another thing I need help with, please, is the following. I was at a choir rehearsal (a few years ago) when the choirmaster said, "Right, any questions?" to which I IMMEDIATELY responded, "Who made the sandwiches?" My fellow choristers looked at me as if I'd gone mad! I think it might have been from a TV advertisement for a sandwich spread or something, but a Google search hasn't come up with the answer. In the grand scheme of things, neither is really a problem, but they're driving me mad nonetheless!
I’m married to a 78 YO man and am not happy. This is my second marriage and I married him because I was on the rebound and lonely. Now 19 years later I’m so unhappy. Is it too late to start over again? I’m 65 and not happy.
