Specific attention to dietary calcium intake may also be warranted beyond age 60.


Nice point of view everyone.

C'est vraiment la bonne fa?on, vous discuter de ce genre de sujet.

Good job.


I keep thinking about how retirement sounds like so much fun. But at age 33, with a 4-year-old at home, I think I have a ways to go before I get there! So it's a good thing I'm enjoying this stage too, eh? ;)

Sounds like you've got the best of both worlds right now, Sandra - I hope it's a blast!


Sharvani, don't worry. What BF is, isn't going to change.

When I started the strip, they were in their thirties...Susan didn't have children, Kim wasn't married and Maeve was a divorcee. Gradually as I got older (it happens to the best of us!), I made slight changes to refect my the influences I had around me. Susan had children, Kim got married and became a stepmother, Maeve is still divorced. (She's just too much fun to change) I've made other little changes...sometime in the past 8ish years...I couldn't tell you exactly when...Susan and Kim began to wear reading glasses. Another inevitable sign that they are aging...but nothing really "in your face". Just a fact of life. Susan, Kim and Maeve have history and they'll always have each other as confidants and as a nemisis. (I'd need to ask my editor how to make that one plural) I'm in my fifties now and things are beginning to look different to me. I'm beginning to have a little more free time...I'm thinking more about my (down-the-road) retirement but I'm certainly not ready to retire. I'm anything but tired and worn out and (stereotypically) "old". I'm excited to see my kids move on...a bit sad too...but now that they're older, I'm able to attend more functions (of all kinds) without the same worries about who's going to be home for the kids...I'm going to the movies with my friend tonight...second time in the last six weeks. I feel like my social life is going to expand not shrink! At the very least, it's going to get easier. Not a very well-thought out answer...but I don't think you'll notice a huge difference. Trust me. :)

Hey Sandra, Do the girlies on Between Friends really have to 'age'? All these days I never felt the age being such a player...I mean even if I am not married or have kids I could oh so relate to so many of their life circumstances..BF kinda cut across the age barriers...but now , suddenly this week's strips I could not relate to as much :( :(


I love this week's strips! I'm not quite at the stage where I can fully relate, but they're still great fun to read.


My OLD AGE??? heh...heh...it's not philosophical, it's more like shock. When did all this time pass?? :)

Don't go gettin' all philosophical there, in yer old age.

(Enjoying the series. Keep it up.)


Hehe, I love the rhymes. :)


Roar on - love it!
