    • Yes she truly is amazing. I love people like that. I worked in the health care industry for many years, and have come across a few that were awe-inspiring. I’m glad you enjoyed her, Nate. Take care!

    • Yes, Brandi, it’s true that we need to remember to take care of ourselves. Sometimes we (I) forget! She sure is a spunky woman and I hope I was at 1/2 of her energy when I’m that old. Thanks so much for stopping by.

    • Isn’t she wonderful, Vince? My mother, if not for Alzheimer’s, would have spunk like that. I truly admire people like this. They have more energy than I do! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

  1. Great story! I have seen Dorothy on The tonight show and she is pretty amazing. On my bucket list is to travel to some exotic places like Australia, new Zealand and Thia land. Thank you for sharing
