I just said to my husband, "When I grow up, I want to be just like Helen Philpot."

He asked, "WHO is THAT?"

I said, "Helen is an elderly woman who writes a BLOG with her friend Margaret and it's called MARGARET AND HELEN BEST FRIENDS FOR 60 YEARS AND COUNTING." (click here for a link to ENJOY!)

Helen Philpot is from Texas and Margaret Schmechtman is from Maine; they have a BLOG but do not write every day, but when they do publish, it's priceless. Helen wrote: "My grandson taught me how to do this so I could "blog" with my friend Margaret who I met almost sixty years ago."

I think the word "pithy" was created for them!

Years ago, at a political event, I was standing next to a woman old enough to be my mother, and standing next to me was a woman much younger than I. I put my arm around the older woman and said, "When I grow up, I want to be just like you." My younger friend chimed in and said, "And when I grow up I want to be just like you, Sue!" That's the THIRD best compliment I've ever received. CLICK HERE to see the BLOG article for the first and CLICK HERE to see the second best compliments.

They are on my "favorites"; I wish they would write every day! ML
