I hope you noticed the news about my husband's book on the main page. We're both pretty excited about his getting his book out today, and we are looking forward to seeing it in paperback shortly. I've been working on another book based on a short story that I started some years ago.

When my husband finishes getting his book on ageing into paperback, he'll then be able to put my Calbert and His Adventures book on Amazon and get my Rough Edges novel title changed to a title that I like better, and then he can get my novel Tomorrow into Kindle and paperback, and work on getting more of my books published. I have a couple more children's books and a book of poetry and a book of cat pictures and the book I'm presently working on.

There's a lot of publishing for us to do and both of us are kind of excited about that.

We are now 90 and 91. In a few months we will be 91 and 92, but we are in good health and only take one medication and that's for low thyroid. However, our age makes us slower in getting things done, and the days seem to pass so rapidly we can hardly believe it.

We made it this far through the virus problem, and we think that we had the virus in early spring and didn't know it. We each had a health problem, but didn't know that it was the virus at the time. In July a new listing of the various symptoms of the virus came out, and the symptoms that we had had earlier were on that list, so we are pretty sure that our good health and our taking immune boosters and enabled us to come through it all.

Even though we are getting really old, we get out a lot. We order most of our groceries for pickup at a local grocery store, but we also go to some of our favorite grocery stores to get special items we like, especially cookies. And we go out to eat supper early at several of our favorite restaurants. I like to drive so I frequently take my husband and go on a tour of the nearby Revolutionary War battleground as well as other interesting places. Getting out helps me avoid the cabin fever I felt so much in the spring when everyone was kinda homebound.

Neither of us walks as well as we did years ago when we went on volksmarches every week, but we do our walking and carry a cane to make sure we don't fall over somehow and break a hip or something.

After supper in the evening, we sit together on the couch in the living room and watch the old Perry Mason episodes on television, and have a little dish of ice cream before we get ready for bed. Life is good and we are happy. We hope that your lives are good that you taking care of yourselves.

All the best, Carolee
