Two No Trump!

That was us – two ladies with no idea how to play bridge having no idea about how to bid for a trump suit.  But before we knew it, we were playing! OK, so once again, this was NOT a seniors class – but we were the only people who were not grandparents.  After the … Continue reading »

Tap, tap, tap…

A clumsy dork on tap shoes: That’s what I was for this “We Never.”  As a result, I never felt great taking tap lessons every week.  Erin loved it and even went so far as to discuss setting up a recital so all of our family and friends could come see the clumsy dork on … Continue reading »

Fred, Ginger, Gene and now Erin!

Words can not express how excited I was for this week’s We-Never.  Tap dancing! This is something I have wanted to do for years – I have even tried it (adult beginning tap).  But this is the first time it took! And it was everything I had hoped it would be.  Heel, toe, dig, cramp… … Continue reading »

Ultimate Mortification

Yes, that’s how I would describe not just the photo shoot itself but the anticipation.  Anticipation may be the wrong word – that seems to carry with it some excitement.  There was nothing exciting about readying myself for our We Never boudoir shots.  No, it was nothing short of dread.  In fact, I couldn’t wait … Continue reading »

Could I have not done this 20 years ago?

No – and do you want to know why? Because you never know how good you look until after you look that good.  So that is why I decided to do Boudoir photos of myself – less than 2 years before my 50th.  Notice I said ?I decided” because I can promise you that Lisa … Continue reading »

How to feel young and old at the same time!

Our “We Never” experiences have put us in some odd situations.  Sometimes you look around and wonder how you got there.  Tai Chi was one of those – Me, Erin and 8 or 9 Japanese American octogenarians in a church hall engaging in the slow and steady movements of Tai Chi.  Well, at least the … Continue reading »

Wax on, wax off…

Tai Chi with seniors? Bring it on!  Ok, in fairness, we did not know it would be a seniors class – it was simply by default.  All the attendees were 80 year old Buddhists (we did it at the Buddhist community center where we attended the service).  The reality is that it is harder to … Continue reading »

Just around the corner…

Visiting a Buddhist Temple had been on our list since the beginning.  So when we finally checked into it, we found one in Culver City in a non-descript building that looked more like a home circa 1960’s.  We went to the morning service at Venice Hongwanji Temple.  There was a handful of friendly and welcoming … Continue reading »

If the service had only been in English!

This week, Lisa and I headed to our local Buddhist temple (more like a chapel within a community center).  Like so many weekly adventures, we were welcomed with open arms.  The attendees wanted to tell us about their religion – but without that feeling of someone trying to recruit you.  We were offered coffee and … Continue reading »

Everything’s Coming Up Roses!

I was interested, a bit nervous and hugely skeptical about being hypnotized.  Turns out that the hypnotist we saw was not one of those who claim that they can make you quack like a duck.  She’s more into getting you in a relaxing position and convincing you that you can do whatever it is you … Continue reading »
