Dating for Boomers


Since I’m married (at least that what Mr. S keeps telling me), I’m not an authority on dating. As it stands it’s been about 35 years since I’ve been out there, and I’m pretty sure that it’s tougher than it was back then. SO, I’ve decided to call in a favor from novelist Charles Massie […]
