18. An A in my summer creative writing class
I went back to college a year ago at age 60. Have a 4.0 average so far. Wrote 4 poems and 2 short stories for my summer class and professor says one of my stories is good enough to publish--so I'm pursuing that. Also have an essay from spring comp class published at along with a review of a John Singleton movie.

PS. Also planning to retire in 2-1/2 months. Just living long enough to retire seems to me like an accomplishment!
