              Carmela has a mischievous twinkle in her eye
              And her three grown children live nearby
              Although Carmela lives alone
              Her upstairs' neighbor comes down
              When she forgets to hang up the phone.

              She recently had knee surgery
              And the doctor told her
              She was healing beautifully.

              "You'll be driving in a few weeks," he said
              "Guess there's just no way to keep you in bed."

              "Are you kidding, Doctor,"
              Was Carmela's reply
              "I've never driven before
              But I'd sure like to try!"
              Yes, lovely Carmela is still having fun
              And guess what???
              SHE JUST TURNED ONE-HUNDRED AND ONE!!!! (:-)

            Carmela's son Joe volunteers with me at the
      New Jersey Memorial Home for Disabled Veterans, where
      we conduct a Writers' Workshop. Joe and his wife
      Mary Ann invited me to a buffet dinner at an Italian
      restaurant, where I met Carmela for the first time.
      Other people at the dinner included their family
      members, the young man who is Carmela's neighbor
      and her two lady-friends. The three women looked
      lovely. They have their hair done at the same beauty
      parlor every week -- and Carmela's beautiful face is
      wrinkle-free. We all enjoyed the delicious variety
      of Italian food, wine, Cappuccino and dessert. I hugged
      Carmela when we said goodbye. Looks like there's no
      stopping this dear lady! <3
