Just because we’re old doesn’t mean we know what the hell we’re doing!

The truth is, most of us are just fumbling our way through life, navigating without a map.

Mobile and manufactured homes: a great option for home ownership when it doesn’t seem like a reality

Mobile/manufactured homes still have a lot of stigma in our culture, but they can be a great alternative to home ownership when that seems impossible. Let’s look at why they are a fantastic option for us aging women.

What’s this all about?

The Eccentric Dames Society is here for middle-aged and older women who don’t fit the mold. We are here for for the rebels, the rule breakers, and the style-makers (and those who want to become any of those!) We are a new generation of “old” ladies; we aren’t afraid to admit that we’re old now, but we have to do it our way. We’ve made it this far. We have gained wisdom. We like comfy shoes (but that are still cute) and staying home (where we have clean bathrooms, unlimited booze and pets are allowed, and there are no assholes to deal with). We like to go out, but on our own terms, and when and where we choose. We don’t care what people think anymore. We’ve been there, done that. Now we are selective about who we see, what we do, and what we want, and we’re not even sorry about it. Our time is valuable, and we want to make the most of it — whatever that means to each of us. Welcome, rule breakers.
