I love it! I want to be this old woman someday...

I like where this thread is weaving to. I'd recommend Rich's "A Marriage in the 'Sixties." Also, here's a link to a little character study by James Tate with a female lead that's just too much fun to ever get close to whiny:

However, GPKuncle, might that lady not need to be poleaxed into silence?

Hope that gets others to read it.

Brenda, it would be OK to be that old woman's old man, too, wouldn't it? Especially if the old man tends to be an explainer . . .

GPKuncle, might you be suggesting that Tate's motorcycle wife and Paley's old man are two of a kind?
