Thinking Ahead

I have just turned 60 and when I view a lot of what goes on in over 60s social activities I live in fear. I love the Rolling Stones, Loud rock music, drinking vodka and dancing in 5in heels. I wear the most up to date fashions and many of my friends are the same. How can we start a campaign to have alternative care homes in the future, where all are involved in outragious living and are non comformists by nature. We dont want to listen to lift music and play bingo and be spoken to like children. We want to rock till we drop. Cover our walking frames in leopard skins and have speedy scooters. Any one out there want to help get people thinking about this issue?

Ditto! All my clothes are jeans, all my shoes are boots and I couldn't knit a baby's bonnet to save my life. Where are all you lovely lovely ladies?
