Being a (well almost) regular reader of your blog over time, I'm sure you'll be just fine! You are bigger & better than any stinkin' nerve that might want to raise up and say you can't do it!

I remember the days when pulling to the side of the road and running for the nearest bush was common, sleeping on the ground, hitchhiking (sshhh) and so many other things that I wouldn't dream of now! For one, if I were to squat by the side of the road, I'd probably fall right into that wet spot I was making & sleeping on the ground - only if someone is there to help me up in the morning. LOL

Good luck but most of all, relax and have fun!!!!!!

don't forget the rubber flip flops for using in someone else's shower - I'm worried about athlete's foot! Never had it, but never wanted it either ;-)

I'd just go for loose fitting cotton moo-moos and float about looking wise and carefree (he, he, he)....all white is always a good and intelligent look in the summer and maybe some big, bold beads or like turquose...maybe some silver bangles and of course the silver sandals with the polished tootsies ;-)

You go girl! Have fun with the ladies and just be yourself!

Oh, Lani, I would love to take your workshop. And, as for the swimsuit issue, (no, not sports illustrated) I know just what you mean. Mine is hot pink! Can you see the pink elephant coming? But, after 50, you can do whatever you want and screw what anyone else says or thinks. JUST HAVE FUN!!
