Good for you! You are only 77 years old. Those five Corgis will keep you alive and well for a very long time. I live in the city and there is a woman in our building who is 90 years old. She gets up every day, puts on her makeup and takes her little dog for a walk. She looks fabulous and she loves to engage this 64 year old in semi heated debates whenever we run into each other. She usually wins!
I have been a good parent and an even better grandparent. My husband and I have never asked anyone for anything and if my children have
to clean up our mess at the end of our lives, so be it.
I saw a bumper sticker a long time ago on a fancy old Cadillac and it said "we are spending our children's inheritance".
I thought, wow, way to go!
