I love Renee’s blog “Life In The Boomer Lane” (lifeintheboomerlane.wordpress.com) and was flattered when she asked me to write a guest post. Here it is for your enjoyment..

Life in the Boomer Lane


Mimi, the author of Waiting for the Karma Truck, has asked me not to include her words about the karma truck in her bio, here. But, because I am a ten-year-old boy at heart, I am doing exactly that:

“What do I want to tell you? I guess the same thing I say to everyone – the karma truck rolls up everyone’s driveway. Believe me. You may not be there to see it, you may never know it arrived definitively – but it’s on the road and it has the correct address.

    1. Thank you so much!! I was a little out of my comfort zone and really didn’t want to disappoint Renee!!! As to whether or not I’m beautiful…well talk about self-esteem issues on another day..;-). Xoxo

      1. You are beautiful. Always have been, always will be. I’m in a position of authority on this one. To the moon and back, kiddo – laughing all the way.

      2. Oh honey, I’m so happy at the visual of you laughing. And thank you for your forever blurry vision…to the moon and back..xoxo, m

  1. Beautiful post Twinky. ♥ Loved it. I leave your blog with smiles! You are a beautiful soul. Beautiful lady. My Hubby always tells me I am beautiful and just to “grow old gracefully”. That is what I strive for and of course ‘act my age’ most of the time. ha ha Have a great day. Twinkle (Renee) 🙂 🙂

    1. Hi Twinkle (and can I tell you that I referred to the Renee for whom I wrote this, as ‘Twinkle’ before I realized that I was blessed with knowing two different Renees???)..I’m so glad you got a smile from this post! My husband also is a proponent of growing old gracefully – as he plays at baseball camp! 😉 Have a wonderful day..hugs, m

      1. OH No! I am sure you both got quite a chuckle. I don’t know if you knew that my name is “Irene” and my nickname is ‘Renee’. (ree-nee) 🙂 hugs. 🙂 ♥

      2. Just makes it all the funnier..and in my view you sparkle, so that’s all there is to it (regardless of how one pronounces your nickname)..<3

  2. Hello Mimi. You have really topped if off now. To devote an entire post to reading a fashion magazine and sucking us all into not only reading it, but reading it enthusiastically (your post that is, not the magazine!)
