This area contains all of the news articles from the Prime Timers Worldwide quarterly newsletter.  They are listed in chronological order, with the most recent news article listed first.  Feel free to peruse this article archive; it is chock full of interesting stories from local chapters, the worldwide organization as a whole, and important news to its members.

Late in April, I was asked to step in and conduct the monthly Prime Timers Sarasota meeting. This article is based on my notes and presentation and although directed at the one specific chapter, it applies to all. First off, let me say that this article was written after the fact.

Did you know that the Prime Timers Worldwide website offers an online store for purchasing merchandise emblazoned with the PTWW logo? These make wonderful gifts for yourself, awards to chapter members, and can promote the organization during your events. Here is a small sample of the items can be purchased a very reasonable cost:

In the Flesh

by Ethan Stone

Christian Flesh is an out-and-proud gay cop who finds himself being framed for murder. He's quite the slut, preferring one night stands and quickies to having any real relationship with anyone. To protect himself in this, he has a set of rules he lives by such as "No kissing". Along comes his new lawyer, Colby, who is a closeted gay man. Christian finds himself slowly breaking rule after rule. At first I didn't really like Christian, he was pretty self centered and pretty much admitted he enjoyed being a slut and was proud of this. As the relationship with Colby begins to get more intense, however, we find Christian slowly thawing out to the point where we start seeing his good side. Because of some past hurts, he has protected himself with his initial persona, but through Colby he begins to learn to trust and how to love. The big problem, however, is that he is the suspect in a murder case that stands between him and Colby's relationship. The other problem they must work to overcome is the fact that Colby is not ready to come out as gay which makes no sense to Christian. This was an enjoyable read. The characters are well developed and the plot held my attention throughout the entire book. I would rate it four out of five stars due to the fact that it took a while to warm-up to Christian.

Come to think of it, there are things worse than old age. When I am in one of my "old age sucks" moods, I direct my thoughts to what has been so good — things that many of my friends never had the opportunity to experience because they left this world so soon in life. How lucky I am to have lived so much longer than many of my friends — I lost young buddies in World War II, the AIDS epidemic, and for other reasons. Sometimes when I am in my "Count your blessings" moods, I turn to God and ask, "Why me? Why am I still here and they're not?"
