Sly Merritt has a BA in psychology/sociology. MA in clinical psychology. He's a flip flop wearing hippy with a peaceloving mindset. Even pacifists like him know when it's time to do all we can for LGBTQ equality. Sly's views are all opinions not advice.

    Happy Birthday!! and thank you for a great post! Thankfully I will be 60 this coming March 18, I don’t stress about it, I embrace it! I am just in awe that I will be 60, how did I get her so fast!! lol. I am several Gay friends who are younger than I am that really do stress about getting older and do whatever it takes to keep up a younger appearance.
    I tell them I am proud of my grey hair, i have earned everyone of them.
    I hope this year is a very happy and adventuresome year for you!!
