We decided to take a little “field” trip during one of our days at Hoshinoya. We took the boat down river to the deer park. One of the most interesting things we passed was the Bamboo Forest. You can take tours and see some of the animals that live there…..we were content to cruise by…

As super agers I know that we feel “bullet proof” when it comes to anything that will slow us down.  But, I would guess that Alzheimers-related dementia is one of the illnesses we fear.  It may not strike us personally but it certainly affect our significant others, friends and parents.  My mother is in her…

Another season……another “selfie” in the locker room before our first run.  If I could only do ONE thing…..skiing with Missy K would be it.  No questions.  We introduced the Fabulous Missy K to skiing when she was just about 3 years old.  Most of her ski days at that point were full of music, games…
