Bi-Polar – The Thin Edge of Dignity

I’m one of 40 or so elders – I could say seniors – equally nice sounding, but without the gravitas –  or mature– nah, that’s for movie ratings – or, more scornfully, geezers,  or wickedly demeaning  – old farts.  I guess you could say all-of-the-above. After decades of achievements and societal contributions, and professional accomplishments (and being a bit of a pompous ass ) with  a smidgen of pride,  I prefer the politically correct, solemn, and dignified first word choice –  who reside in an Assisted Living Facility (ALF.).
