Dear Gwin or LadyG or whoever you call yourself when you write,
This is Mother, and I just want to let you know that I’ve been reading those blots that you and Ronnie have and I enjoy them very well.
I’ve also been looking around at other blots and I’ve found people talking about all kinds of things.
So, with that in mind, I thought I might try writing a blot about how to keep yourself up after you turn 80.
I am hoping that your readers will appreciate this advice as it will stand the test of time.
I keep my meals pretty simple. You know the doctor said I was borderline diabetic so I have to watch my sugar. That being the case, I usually eat 2 small cookies with my lunch and my dinner.
Listen now, don’t ever eat sweets between meals ’cause it won’t balance out–your sugar will go too high. You always need something with it to keep it from shooting up.
Oh and I don’t drink full sugar drinks, I like diet Pepsi with my meals.
Always, always, always make sure your pants and skirts have elastic in the waist so you can be comfortable wherever you go.
A good pair of ear-bobs will help you to look nice and neat.
I bathe with Ivory soap and I always put Oil of Olay on my face; it keeps my skin from wrinkling.
If I’m going out, I use some scissors to cut off any stray hairs that crop up on my chin.
Since my hair started turning gray, I’ve been using V05 hair cream to keep it from going yellow.
Gwin, ain’t nothing worse than a head full of gray hair with a yellow cast to it.
Also make sure you use a good sponge roller for your bangs.
Well, that’s it for now.
I hope that some of your readers will find these tips useful. I’ll go down in the comment section for a little while to answer questions. Tell your readers to begin their comments with “Dear Mother” if they want to talk to me about my blot.
Otherwise, they can talk to you.

These tips are from a CENTENARIAN…..so there’s that. By the way, she was 82 years old in the picture above. Sadly, she passed away a few years ago 🌹
