Who IS this Gilbert person anyway?

1. Which is worse? Being gossiped about or being lied to?
I guess being lied about. I know so few people that
even if an untrue rumor is going around about me, I'm likely not to know
about it -- or to care.
How about none of the above. I never go to either,
though I will occasionally (VERY rarely) have one of the frou frou drinks at
Well there was that time when a very proper British
gentleman from our babysitting coop was sitting for us while we went to a
party. I was wearing a very fancy sequined coulotte outfit that had been
my mothers. I enjoyed champagne just a bit too much and when we got
home, I desperately needed a bathroom, but when I started weaving up the
stairs, my foot caught on the leg of the coulotte, I fell on my face on the
stairs and peed all over myself. Last time I got drunk at a party!
I was embarrassed for a long time until I found out the guy himself had
secrets, when he and his wife invited some friends of ours to go "swinging"
with them, (they said no).
Not at all. It might not work, of course....
Koko, the sign language gorilla.
I might have to say this one, because we are such a melting
pot that we have gourmet food from all over the world, where other countries
don't. Hard to a find a good taco in Japan, I suspect, or nice chow
mein in Barcelona.
Definitely deep conversations.
My year, I suspect, is going to be centered, as 2016 was, on
my mother. I'm not sure she is able to be "encouraged," but I try so
hard to make her life enjoyable, when all she can talk about is how old she
I don't know. Many of you guys know me pretty well
after all these years...what advice would you give me?
It's been so long since I've been really sick, I can't even
remember when the last time was. Sometimes I think a nice brief bout
of the flu wouldn't be so bad because I would have an excuse for doing
nothing (other than just laziness)
I have many acquaintances and one or two very close friends
I would cure dementia.
Harlan Coben's "Home," just because it was a return of my
favorite character, Myron Bolitar, after many years when I thought he would
never be back. "Elephant Memories: 13 years in the life of an Elephant
Family" by Cynthia Moss was also wonderful, for someone who loves elephants.
I can't think of any big accomplishment, but I'm rather
proud of writing for the Sacramento News and Review each week.
Not if you paid me. For one thing I'd never make it
past the first day, but also the oldest person they have had on Survivor
is probably young enough to be my child. I'd give my slot to son Ned,
who is a huge fan of the show.
Both are nightmares, but jeans cover up more stuff, if you
can find a pair that fit. I have not been successful and no longer try
At 97, my mother is not only the oldest relative I know, but the oldest relative I can think of who has already passed.

With my new phone and new tablet, it brings the total "gadgets" to 6.
I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
