Wine women and song

May your wine be fermented not vocal
May your women be friendly and local
May your song be harmonic and
May 2015 be iconic!

May over 50 be spifty
May your peeps be gifty
May your wrinkles be earned
And your lessons well learned.

My best! Diane +50


New Years resolution to being over 50

I will not wish I was 40 again
I must remember hindsight is 20/20
I forgive my gray hair-they would like to be red again perhaps.
I will spend more time trying to listen to millennial’a – I had some of those same ideas and they got swept away by family and survival.
I will not gesture to car drivers less talented than myself.
While I can not forget those who have wronged me I will still wish them peace.
And I will lose 10 pounds.

Please share your list with me.
