MiamiHerald / On her last day being 90 years old, Olga Cleary introduces herself with a clipping from a novelty gift catalog.
“When I get old, I don’t want people thinking, ‘What a sweet little old lady,’ ” the clipping reads. ” ‘I want them saying, ‘Oh, crap! What is she up to now?’ “
But the answer lately is not much.
After a fall a few years ago made her fearful another slip might put her in a nursing home, Cleary rarely leaves the North Miami house she has called home for nearly 70 years. She lives alone and depends on a small group of volunteers to help her take baths, bring her warm meals and perform heavy household tasks like taking out her trash.
