This candy-coated image is of a shiny, candy-coated past. It’s how I like to think of the Boomer culture we grew up in –because during tough times, fantasy can be a good escape.

She greets him lovingly when he enters the room. She pats his velvety brown and black tabby fur. He purrs. She thinks she’s finally making headway. He cares. He loves her. Then he bites her.

Rebecca Olkowski, with BabyBoomster.com, was getting tired of wearing “pandemic” tee shirts and shorts and went to do some shopping to jazz up her petite apple shape body. She found some great sales and even a few items at her local women’s auxiliary thrift store. If you are all stomach, you will enjoy her post Styling a Petite Apple Shape for a Woman Over 50.
And yes, still walking
