Went down to Park Square here in Anchorage last Wednesday to help show Bird TLC education birds to all the sailors and marines on leave from the USS Anchorage. There was a time in my youth when, during fleet week, I would not have had to pay for a drink all night. Now I looked at all the beautiful young men and women in uniform and they all looked like they could be my grandchildren. I couldn’t have worked up the energy to flirt with them even if I wasn’t aware that I would just look like a wrinkled old lady with clearly unachievable aspirations. So depressing. Had to come home and watch an NCIS rerun to get my balance back.
