AWF-E WISE WOMEN will gather at 10 a.m. April 15 for a non-taxing conversation about being 70+: Our topic: If not now, when? Or why don’t we feel that old?

Please bring your thoughts, wisdom, readings, poem etc. to our circle. I see us as pioneers. We are a different tribe of women at this stage of life, far different than those who preceded us. If you agree or disagree, please join us! This poem sets the stage for our discussion.

If Only
By Judith Viorst

If only shopping at Saks counted as exercise.
If only aggravation made me thin.
If only there was a pill I could take for grace
under pressure and upper-arm definition.
If only I lost as adorably as I win.

If only having insomnia gave me courage.
If only eating chocolate made me smart.
If only there was a cloth that washed off lipstick,
mascara, eyeliner, blush, and wrinkles.
If only my breasts and my waist were farther apart.

If only going to movies lowered cholesterol.
If only constipation made me rich.
If only there was a shot that would immunize me
against impatience and feeling guilty.
If only I laughed as easily as I bitch.

If only French fried potatoes helped me remember.
If only they sometimes also helped me forget.
If only one morning I’d leap out of bed feeling ready
and willing and eager to welcome old age.
But not yet.
Not yet.
But not quite yet

When Life Hands You Lemons, Make Limoncello

Pack by popular demand, this month’s Happy Hour is a chance to learn how to make Limoncello, Arancello (orange) or Pompelmocello (grapefruit). Bring a large jar or pitcher, 1 liter of Everclear Grain Alcohol or 151 proof vodka and a vegetable peeler. Or-if you prefer, some wine and an appetizer and just watch the fun. Your hostess (Pam Turbeville) will provide the lemons and recipe or you can bring your own citrus to really make it your own.

This Happy Hour event is open to all AWF members.  Address will be emailed to all registered attendees next week.  However, crossroads are Scottsdale & Mountain View Road.
