From the Journal of the S.O.B.:

Love is defined as an intense feeling of deep affection. In the last many days I’ve had the chance to think about all of this. I have spent 20 days (including those in the hospital) watching TV, sitting with my kitties, answering email and wondering if this is a new direction for me.  Looking out my window I see the boats going by and stopping at the restaurant my family and I frequented, the beauty of Miami’s sunshine (we are the warmest in the nation) the fact of friends and family checking in on me, and that life did not collapse with my doing nothing.

Love comes in many shapes and sizes and it could be admiring nature, hearing the good news stories at this time of year, and since I am such an animal nut, I have to say that having my two best friends (my kitties) with me at all times made a huge difference in my recovery. No questions, no judgment, just purrs and licks and nuzzling right by my side.

I go back into the world today with a dentist appointment, and Wednesday I leave for a conference in Orlando. Not such a big trip so looking forward to it plus I get to have dinner with my old dancing partner and one of my oldest friends. What’s better than that for a comeback!!

Dr. Gayle Carson, Chief S.O.B. has announced the 2018b Spunky Broad of the Year.  And she is Dolly Parton, a prime example of what a woman over 50 can still achieve.

An extraordinary businesswoman, out of this world entertainer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress, author, and a philanthropist, Dolly Parton is a testament to what women can achieve.  At 72, she is continuing to have massive influence in the world of entertainment and her Dollywood Theme Park continues to thrive with new exhibits and attractions that the public adores.

Married to her husband for over 50 years, she is an example of someone who blends family and professional life with amazing dexterity and humor.  A Spunky Old Broad is someone who distinguishes herself by her uniqueness, intellect, enthusiasm, dedication, selflessness and spunky. Dolly certainly epitomizes all of those.

Dr. Gayle says “Women over 50 are like fine wine.  They only get better with age and I am delighted to have Dolly Parton as our Spunky Old Broad of the Year.” 

Gayle also says “I started the S.O.B, movement because I found that women over 50 were thinking that it was all over because they hit the magic number of 50.  I knew that they had everything it took to start new careers, develop a passion into a business and start thinking about putting themselves first.  And I was right. Right now re-invention is the name of the game.

Gayle will be addressing the East Bay Women’s Conference  in California on just that subject next month.
