“Whatever you are doing, keep it up!” Those were the words of my rheumatologist 30+ years ago after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called ‘ankylosing spondylitis.’ X-rays revealed my spine to be 100% fused, with pain and stiffness.

I defied the doomsday diagnoses given by an orthopedist 35 years ago, “Be prepared to be disabled and in a wheelchair by the time you are in your forties!”

To that I replied, ‘NO I won't! So, in keeping with my rheumatologist’, I did what he recommended. I stayed mobile and kept moving! I am now 74 and worked full time, in very physically demanding job—and retired in my 70th year.

The awful prophecy did not come to pass, as the Dr. Grim said. I never made plans for anything but happiness and a fulfilled life—and that is what has come to pass!

I love retirement, except I found a new career which is writing! I have added Author to my nursing career. More below.

    It's the end of another week. . . Happy Friday! I have been trying to resolve some computer issues with the assistance of a computer tech. So I thought I'd post a few giggles about computers.

    The first computer dates back to Adam and Eve.
    It was an Apple with limited memory, and with just one byte - everything crashed.

    A TV can insult your intelligence, but nothing rubs it in like a computer.

    Failure is not an option. It comes bundled in with all computer software.

    I changed my password to "incorrect" so anytime I forget it, my computer tells me
    "Your password is incorrect."

    Notice on bulletin board in the office lunch room:
    Whoever stole my copy of Microsoft Office, I will hunt you down, and make you pay - You have my Word!

    The inventor of the autocorrect function recently died. May he rest in peas.

    The job application asked, "How good are you at Powerpoint?"
    My response: "I Excel at it!"

    Enjoy your weekend!

Tracy her SIL eventually married Like, years after Laura divorced him. Jesse, I believe was with Phil Brewer. My memory is foggy for back then. Haha
