Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

New slant on getting old(er)!

I like to write down remarks that people make, or things that I read, that make a lasting impresssion on me. Here are two:
"You're not getting old. You're just finding different ways of doing things."
Patty wrote this on a recent comment. It reminded me of something another friend said to me years ago when she was diagnosed with arthritis in her spine.
"Old age comes one day at a time, so I've got plenty of time to get used to it!"

Hi Gina. Here another couple of saying
When an old person dies, a library is lost.
You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
