Dear Abby: When I was a child, my parents skipped my elementary school graduation. For that matter, everyone did. My grandfather had just died, so Mom was mourning his loss. Fast-forward a few years — nobody attended my junior high graduation, either. Granted, Mom had a couple of stitches in her nose because my brother had accidentally hit her with a golf club the week before.

Reader scrapbook

Cooper, a nine-year-old old Golden Retriever, loves summertime because he gets to play in the sprinkler ... all ... day ... long.

It’s hard for him to understand that on rainy days his sprinkler friend can’t come out and play. Donna said it’s a good thing she can distract him with a cookie.

Study: Older moms much more likely to become old ladies

Attention, women who were declared to be of “advanced maternal age” even as their bellies swelled with life, who chased after a toddler with more patience than vigor, and who have simultaneously navigated menopause and parented an adolescent: Late-life mothering — if it occurred naturally at least — doubles your odds of living to an unusually old age, according to a new study.
