A week or two ago a friend of mine posted on Facebook that she knew someone that needed a bone marrow transplant and urged us all to sign up. I went to the site to see what you need to do. Guess what? I am too old!! They don't take people over 60. OUCH!!!!
Today I went to the Juneau Senior Citizens Center to see if they needed any volunteers. The director was very nice but it is a federally run program and all volunteers must pass several background checks. Takes too long and is too costly for someone here on a short stay. But guess what? At 60, I qualify for their programs:) She invited me to come any day for lunch or to one of the programs. OUCH, OUCH, OUCH!!!!!! My only saving grace is she did ask how old I was - she did not assume I was sixty.
As engraved on my iTouch and my children have been coerced to tell you, I am the NEW FORTY!!!! If they tell you otherwise, please let me know so I can "review" my will.
I also went to the Alaska State Museum today. Every time I come to Juneau I visit this museum. It is so well done and always interesting. There was a wonderful exhibit of photographs this time as well as all the usual exhibits. They do need volunteers so I may check back with them next week.
