A favorite blogger writes: "What has happened to all the women who are done with child-rearing? Young voices permeate the blogosphere." What do sixty-something women do with their lives, especially if they do not have full-time jobs? We're here to find that out.

I'm a movie star!
Well, OK. Just an extra. Still, I am clearly identifiable, sitting on the aisle right across from Tyler Hinman when he is named as a finalist in the 2005 ACPT tournament, when Wordplay was filmed. H has the DVD from Netflix and has confirmed this. I saw only a preliminary screening at the 2006 tournament and couldn't be sure.
This is a first for me on the big screen. You may, however have seen me on the small screen, competing for valuable prizes. Password, for example, in 1962 ($700 and a set of World Book encyclopedias). Ten Thousand Dollar Pyramid in 1979 (only a coffee-maker and a case of Rice-a-Roni, but I got to meet David Letterman). And Ready Set Cook! , an early Food Network game show, in 1997 (cheap blender).
I haven't actually calculated whether this all adds up to fifteen minutes total screen time or not. There may be more fame still to come - who knows?
