Tea with two costume designers and the woman who made Spock’s volcano diving suit

-2After tea with my old friends last Sunday… We talked about; what had happened to the skin on our necks, how Mick Jagger learned his dance moves from James Brown, and where a group of fifty year old women could go dancing but not to that — what do the kids call it? — techno-pop. The consensus was a party, a joint birthday party, we’ll call it our 30th…

    I looked at the photo and did a little “Oooh” that those palm-lined sunsets are the norm for you…Cali I do love thee…!
    And a party where I could dance my patootie off without feeling the least bit self-conscious? Sign me up!!!

      By all means! I realized, however, the other day while dancing around the living room, that being fifty means getting winded after about four songs… I have to keep practicing!

    You need to find some Square Dancing!

      Oh! You have no idea, Square Dancing, I loved Square Dancing when I was a little girl. The twirling and the reeling, so much fun 🙂 .

    Dearest V
    I have a fiend who’s age has been ‘blurred’ since she was twenty four. Though are birth dates are but a month apart I find that she’s now five years my junior… very wise.
    No doubt she’s out tonight at some techno-pop shebang.
    Yours ever

      I would tell you something a very elderly friend of my mother’s told me about growing older, but I’ll have to clean it up for my PG site 😉 and give you the Bette Davis version instead: “Old age ain’t no place for sissies.” Bring on the techno-pop!

    You are funny…..I am a little disturbed by the images created by your segue from the skin on your necks to Mick Jagger. After all, you are only ’30’ and he is ????, so surely there is no fair comparison between the skin on your necks 😉

      He is 70 – if I have his stamina at that age I will count myself fortunate – and the neck, there’s no fighting gravity, I will become adept with the scarf 😉 .

      • September 28, 2013

        Yes, he has stamina! And, thank goodness, for scarves.

        Soon to be a mainstay of my wardrobe, if the weather cools down 😉 .
