Everyone thinks when you get old that your troubles cease; all you have to do is sit home all day, watch television, complain about your aches and pains (who listens?), worry why the kids don't call (these kids are 60 years old), become obsessed with the weather, take pills, etc.

Do something utterly ridiculous. I can empathize with the person who is stuck in a highly emotional and physically challenging job/family/community-responsible position, wanting to go to a quiet, secluded island for vacation where they can read a good book and get away from all the pressure. I can also empathize with the person who, day-to-day, has to maintain a frustrating dignity who wants to go to a wild thickly populated place where they can shed their dignity and be completely anonymous and live on the wild side for their vacation.

We all read about it constantly in newspapers and online. We've sadly become familiar with the words "Hackers", "Imposter Scams", "Fraud', and "ID Theft". We tend to be cautious in what we reply to and know when not to reply. Despite exercising caution, I'm sad to report to you that our organization was recently scammed. We have been awaiting the results of the six-week FBI investigation and police report. The first of those investigations has been reached with no results.

CAN YOU BELIEVE that Prime Timers is 30 years old? Wow!

CAN YOU BELIEVE that in that time we have been giving thousands of older gays a way to have a meaningful life in their advanced years? We have shown them that there is a lot of fun to be had at our advanced ages. We have become the salvation for many a bored, dispirited fellow who thought gay life was only for the young. Instead, we have even proved to them that they can still be sexually desirable.

Now that I am over 80, I figure I have earned the right to be cantankerous, forgetful, stupid, helpless, etc. I've also earned the right to be preachy, nostalgic, proud, sentimental, etc.

There are so many advantages to being 90+, I don't know why I didn't start sooner. I dreaded it and looked forward to it at the same time. Go ahead and plan for it; it's a piece of cake (or should I say candy?)

One of the magazines that I read has a monthly column in which celebrities of one kind or other tells what he or she has learned. Since I am not a celebrity, I have chosen to talk about what I have not learned.

Remember the stories you got from whatever sources about the birds and bees? Well, one of the advantages of being old is that we know what sex is (or was). I can't believe that I was brainwashed into believing that stork myth — or Santa Claus — or the tooth fairy, etc. When I learned the truth about these fictional characters, my faith in my parents' veracity was forever slightly tarnished. Am I sorry that these misrepresentations occurred? I don't know.

Come to think of it, there are things worse than old age. When I am in one of my "old age sucks" moods, I direct my thoughts to what has been so good — things that many of my friends never had the opportunity to experience because they left this world so soon in life. How lucky I am to have lived so much longer than many of my friends — I lost young buddies in World War II, the AIDS epidemic, and for other reasons. Sometimes when I am in my "Count your blessings" moods, I turn to God and ask, "Why me? Why am I still here and they're not?"

What a blessing old age is! We too often take for granted the charms of aging. Take, for example, pills. Pills, pills, pills. We take a pill for this, a pill for that, a pill to avoid having to take a different kind of pill. To make lemonade out of a lemon, I call them my little pillies; that makes them seem more like a pet. Too bad most youths are missing out on this pleasure.
