Fifty years is a LONG time. Clo, my life partner of 16 years just turned 50. That is a half century. In Sept., I turn 71. That is almost three quarters of a century. Dear goddess and all the angels, how did we get so many years under our belt??? And on our waist-lines and etched on to our faces. I hope it is wisdom I see in Clo’s eyes and I feel in mine, and not disappointment.
