  1. The conversations that must take place at your house…. I love this. And I’d really like to read the first submission for the Senior Ladies. Perhaps Sara will need to learn to play bridge.

    Don’t you worry. The Senior Ladies will get their day :)

    Yes, the conversations at our house are… unusual.

  3. Never underestimate the pinochle players!

  4. Just very cool, with clever wit! enjoying each one.

  5. Is 39 old enough to join the Senior Ladies?

    My favorite illustration is the 2nd frame. Amazed me again.

  6. Love this – though I am just a wee bit sensitive about the ‘senior’ label. Funny how no matter what age you are, everybody older than you is suddenly ‘senior.’ It gets redefined with each decade.

      Ah yes, Diana!

      The fun thing is, after all, that Sara actually prefers senior people. Always has. She loves the wisdom and stories that are not yet hers. She loves just listening and taking things in. When she is 80, I expect she’ll be avidly sitting near the 120-year-old, saying, “Tell me more.”

  7. Shirley says:

    Just you wait, Sara, you’d be amazed at the poetry overflowing
    from the accumulation of years on this earth. We’re not getting
    older, we’re getting better. Lordwilling, you will too! Keep writing
    and drawing!

  8. I think Sara has been jumping into my life and turning it into a comic. :)
