Out of the Closet and Into the Living Room ...

It's been such a long month! Whenever I see my last posted date, I'm amazed that so much time has passed.

Quick health update ... things are looking up. Somewhat. I'm on my feet ... enjoying fun activities once again and actually looking forward to new days as I wake up in the morning. Hints of summer have lots to do with that, but I can't discount my marvelous support system here (Ed and SJ) and my new best friend, Synthroid (thyroid medication).

I'm still not entirely happy with the aches and pains ... the stiffness at seemingly random times, and my inability to lose more weight. I did lose about 11 pounds since I wrote last, but with my need for immediate gratification - that's just not good enough yet.

Monavie. Thanks to those who have passed on tips or other comments regarding what I've come to refer to as the magical elixir. I wish I could have given a more fruitful report after all this time, but I had to stop using it. If it was helping with my hot flashes, my sleep patterns and emotional well being ... it was killing my wallet. No can do. I cannot give a report on my blood pressure, my triglycerides, or any such 'tested' type results because I wasn't using it long enough to have the approapriate tests. The jury, I'm afraid, remains out ... on the Monavie. Sorry.

A friend of mine thought I would be nuts to put myself out here voice-naked (bearing it all) to anyone who still stops in ... but you know what? What the heck. I'm 52+ and I'll do what I darn well please with my blog. Even if that means being the single most inconsistent participant on earth.

Hope you'll give a peek to the clip. I promise... you'll live through it.

Thank for coming here ...

I check all the time BTW
Its good to hear you are better even if you're still a little stiff.
I think its age myself. I wake up every morning and have to shake off the vigor mortise and explain to my body i am still alive.

I watched the video and you're ready for Vegas but I think you have to be an old geezer to sing there so you may have to wait abother 13 years for a shot.

Oh Carol, the moment you started singing, I had a big grin spread across my face. That was sooo lovely.

You truly are such a gorgeous Weary Hag my dear. I totally loved that! Thank you for sharing another of your talents with us.

If they ever start an over 50 Idol, You're IN!! I am impressed, Carol. Another talent? How many more are you keeping from us?

Hagglette! If you need Pips, I volunteer.

I am going to contact American Idol and get you the ballot as a write in contestant. This is America, dammit we can do it.

Who is with me?

What a fun video! You are very brave but also very talented. Did you used to sing? I can't sing with my head in a bucket...never have been able to, so always admire those who can. Keep up the spirit as mind over matter is essential, because eventually it doesn't matter!

I smell grease paint and the roar of the crowd. Your abilities to entertain have not failed you. I was pleasantly surprised and entertained. Thank you for sharing another of your many gifts. Your stage presence is still quite evident. Your are in your comfort zone. I am pleased that you are feeling better. Hurry and get totally back to your ole self. Best wishes.

Wow... that's some voice you have there. I'm thinking they should be raising the age requirements on American Idol. :-) Wouldn't we oldies but goodies be able to show them a thing or two. :-)

I am so glad to hear that you are feeling better. Synthroid is also a bud of mine.

Nicely done, but to be complete, you really ought to have included the cheesy moves this song and others of its genre are traditionally accompanied by. Maybe you can do a re-take swiveling those hips and twinkling your toes?

You missed your calling! I think you should be singing... with some stand-up thrown in.
