    Hey! I thought there were 100 questions in this quiz? Where are the rest of your answers?

    I have no idea. I copied these from Cathy & Barb. When you look at Cathy's, she skips some #'s.

    That's right. Blame it on your sisters. :-)

    By the way, age is not only in one's mind. One chooses how to respond to aging, and, if one is fortunate in health, aging isn't necessarily negative, but it's a fact of life, nonetheless.
