It actually started fifteen years ago when AARP began sending me offers to join their organization of senior citizens. Lately, literature regarding hearing aids has been appearing in my mailbox and, as this is my birth month, today my Medicare card arrived! Thankfully, I look and feel younger than my years, which helps to offset the reminder that I have chronologically reached the “golden years” and am no longer a “spring chicken”.  Fortunately, these colorful Toho 3mm Magatamas were in my mailbox as well…they will take my mind off age and get the creative juices flowing!
