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.

Errands and a good chicken recipe
A day of errands, odds and ends. Much to do in the coming weeks. Five bags of old paperbacks to the College Club Book Sale. It was disconcerting to see dozens and dozens of bags there earmarked for recycling. Not everything can be saved - that's clear. Boots to the shoemaker for new toes and taps, or was it tips and taps? Whatever - as long as they get me through another season.
Every once in a while I enjoy roaming through Target to see what's new. You have to be in the mood for this, of course. That done, I've made a vow: I won't be hitting any malls or big box stores this month. Plenty of good shopping right in town. I feel better already!
Unusually good and quick dinner of oven-fried chicken (skinless legs and thighs dipped briefly in a mixture of beaten egg, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper, then coated with panko breadcrumbs. Baked on a cakerack over a jelly roll pan in 400 degree oven for about 35 minutes). Probably everyone but me makes this all the time.
