Thanks Jerry Roth — flattery will get you everywhere! 😁 When I was younger I was routinely asked if I were a model and it’s always helpful at a parade or other crowded event to be able to see better. I have also had several people along the way tell me that they wish they had my height. And, my husband, who is a couple of inches taller than I am, really likes tall women, so it’s worked out well in the end.

We did have to laugh the other day when we were out with friends having lunch and the waiter called me sir right to my face. “See” I couldn’t help but remark.
