Gail Forrest recently started doing standup which she finds is a complete blast. Gonepausal is her blog and she has a book on Amazon by the same name filled with stories of her skewed, funny view on midlife and all its attendant surprises. Humor is the only way forward at this point.

Sex Over Sixty: Hot or Not?

Recently, out on a Match.com date, a 76-year-old man asked me if women over 60 still want to have sex. Just as a warning, he stated on his profile that he was 66; funny math, I'd say. And men protest that women fudge the numbers! Geez. Because of his...

Weight Weight, Don’t Tell Me!

Everyone I know is on a diet. We are a nation in pursuit of thin. Have you noticed no one’s ever NOT dieting? And there is a diet for every life. Each week a new one: intermittent fasting, Keto, Paleo (does that involve dinosaurs or dating a paleontologist?), all...

“It’s In His Kiss. That’s Where It Is”

Do you remember your first kiss? It’s memorable; one of the epic firsts in girl’s life.  I, however, am embarrassed to admit that mine wasn’t until high school. There was a lot of middle school kissing going on, just not with me. I was way behind on the adolescent...

Breaking News: Knitting Added to Both Winter and Summer Olympic Games

I am a knitter in training. I suck, but love it. I have become crazed with picking up my bamboo needles whenever I have a free moment. I even love the needles; so shiny and smooth yet maddening as they betray me and drop stitches and holes appear. Curses! ...

Thongs Be Gone

HALLELUJAH! Granny panties are back and making a fashion splash. My dream has come true. No more binding, itching, extreme waxing, or spending the day pulling underwear up or out of my butt. Thongs be gone! Welcome back, soft, comfy, waxing-free undies. Thank you, ARQ for realizing that some...

 Slanguage Anyone? A Comedic Modern Guide to Code Breaking Texting Lingo

I studied French in high school and when I realized my accent would actually scare people I gave it up for Spanish. Spanish is so much easier to pronounce and not get laughed at.  I didn’t continue with Spanish but can stumble my way through ordering tapas. I did...

What’s in YOUR Medicine Cabinet?

I was never good at games. Monopoly almost did me in as I never won a round or accumulated property. I longed for Park Place but always ended up in jail. The only card game I ever tried and won was War but that’s just the luck of the...

Breaking the Dating Code – 2021

I think of myself as someone with a rather large vocabulary. I actually won $5.00 betting on the definition of the word "penultimate." I claimed victory and the cash. Unfortunately, my date didn’t like being wrong or handing over the money. My friend David warned me about using big...

My New Dating Site: Home Depot – Or “It’s in Aisle 12 on the Left”

I spent more time at Home Depot during the pandemic than the grocery store. The aisles were wide, people were scarce, and paper towels, toilet paper and light bulbs were cheap. I was shocked, however, to realize I was literally in “man land.” Rarely a woman in sight. In...

Post-Vaccinated Dating. You Can’t Make This Sh*t Up!

Vaccinated woman looking to date vaccinated man. Yep, I thought I’d try it again with all systems go go go! It felt freeing to finally be able to meet a man in person and not on a computer screen or iPhone. I decided to jump into the post-vaccine dating...
