Meet some blogging Grandpas

A babe of the 50's, a child of the 60's, a teen of the 70's, and a woman of the ages. That's the profile of an old woman who is regularly blogging. The Older Bloggers List writes about some interesting elderly bloggers. Here are some of them (Most elderly bloggers need a web design consultant):

My Mom's Blog "Thoroughly Modern Millie" Garfield, age 80, writes about everything from her travels to the Southwest to her recipe for baked apple crisp. She also includes humorous video clips, such as her recent discourse on packages that are too difficult for older fingers to open.

Clarence Bowles's Can You Hear Me Now? is the 65-year-old Kentucky man's soapbox for giving his views and observations on life, ranging from movies to fishing.

Texas Trifles is authored by Liz "Cowtown Pattie" May, who writes about her teenage experiments with Miracle Whip as a hair treatment, turkey buzzards, killer bees and other oft-amusing aspects of living in the Lone Star State.

Full Fathom Five, written by English teacher and Maine resident Mary Lee Fowler, gives a snapshot of life in a "rural community of artists, craftsmen, farmers and gardeners, all united by our love of nature." Recent entries dealt with the experience of teaching English to Chinese immigrants.
