Younger Next Year


It all started when my husband gave me a book to read called, Younger Next Year. At the time we were on a trip to Williamsburg, VA and I basically finished the book during our travel day. WOW! It was good. Written by Chris Crowley who gives you his own personal journey and Dr. Harry Lodge who gives you the scientific reasons for their suggestions.

What they suggest is vigorous exercise six days a week. In return, after age 50 your body will actually grow physiologically younger each year. In fact, they say that you can avoid 70 percent of the decay and eliminate 50 percent of the injuries and illnesses associated with getting older.

After I returned home and added more intensity to my workouts, joined a gym and signed up for strength training, I wanted to tell all of my friends about this new found wonder “drug.”

I started giving books to people only to discover they weren’t reading them, so I decided to bring Chris to our town to talk to my friends. Now that was a real job. I spent a lot of time over a 6-month period trying to make it all happen. And, I did. That was FUN and Chris was a delight! We had a Preview Party one evening and a Luncheon for Women the next day.

Just as the women were arriving at the country club to attend the luncheon, the skies opened up and we had quite a thunderstorm – wind, heavy rain, lightening, and thunder! Fortunately, most of the women waded on in and we were able to enjoy a wonderful event.

A Story from the Luncheon Day
Not all the women did make it through the storm to the luncheon, however. One woman called to say that her electricity had gone out the night before (during another storm) so she had gotten ready in the dark and couldn’t even blow dry her hair… (now that’s a BIG DEAL to a Texas woman!), but she still planned to come.

After getting all ready, she went out to her garage and had to pull the “manual” cord to try to raise the garage door since the automatic garage door opener was powered by electricity. But, the manual release wouldn’t even work! She could NOT get her car out of her garage.

She called a friend who had already arrived at the luncheon to tell her that she was in her garage, but unable to come.

That’s when you use the old expression, “…all dressed up and nowhere to go!”
