When you're my age, you know life can be tough . . . but if you're still alive you have a good reason to keep dancing.  When you're a grandma you know that most of the things you worried about when you were younger didn't actually happen.  So you look for people who help you see life upside down and inside out.  You value the contributions of zany people.  If you're not familiar with the work of Steven Wright you might want to be.  He's the famous erudite scientist who once said: "I woke up one morning, and all of my stuff had been stolen and replaced by exact duplicates."

Marjorie Hinckley once said, "I'd rather laugh than cry because crying gives me a headache."  So if you're having a hard day, choose laughter.
