Bloggers scrutinize aging, politics, and Halloween
Getting older in America is a challenge many ways. And, it seems that the older I get, the more ageism I face, especially from the medical community.
My blogger friends are thinking and writing about aging, too. Here are their thoughts on the topic:

When Tom Sightings of Sightings Over Sixty gets confused about life or questions what’s happening in the world, he goes back to the writers and philosophers who guided him in earlier in life.

Then, there’s the spooky holiday that comes up every fall. One of our bloggers had strange trouble with her car:
Yes, cars can be spooky. At least Laurie Stone of Musings, Rants & Scribbles’ car was, parked in her garage one strange, blustery October night. This time of year, it’s easy to picture witches and goblins flying by the window or tapping you on the shoulder, but being unnerved by your automobile?
