    Thanks for such a great start on the day ladies. I didn't need the allergies to turn into gravity Everything around here is in a downward slide. Just thinking if I could have an escalator installed in my house I could hang the extra on it and maybe it would just pull it on up for me. What a novel thought....I'm scaring myself.

    i just start at my toes and pull the skin up and up, like panty hose. and then when i get it all to the top of my head i put a thick rubber band around it and then a lovely bow. i've been talking out of my belly button for years, and i hear with my boobs. i look a little like a bloodhound. need to get my nipples pierced so it'll look like earrings. ah, the things i do for fashion!!! see, getting old is too fun!!

    OMG you girls keep me laughing. my daughter at the age of 4 which put me at 33 sat on the counter in the bathroom watching mommy put on her make up. she says will I have fur on my face when I grow up too? outta the mouth of babes. I have blonde hair and I guess the 'fur' was highlighted by the morning sun and well I have shaved my face since then. lol. secrets we keep from our dh. hey baby can i borrow your shaving cream? uh no. God help me coming up with excuses when I nick my chin trying to get that goat hairout. ok what is it with one or two really long hairs? does everyone get those or is it just nanny goat me? right on the tip of my chin. cant see it til I turn sideways in the light then that blonde crud just BLINGS right out. and your right the older you get less leg hair to worry about and more facial trouble. I havent had arm hair in years. sometimes growing older has a few benefits not too many mind you but some. like not caring about saying hey gotta go shave my face brb. lol.

    Vanogay mail away! Anastasia I hope your scraping along there in the new ride. I had a grand am. loved loved loved that car. talk about low to the ground. wonder could I get out of that now? I ride in a big ford truck. I have this foot stool I use to get in, dh drilled a hole in the top I have curl sheen ribbon pulled through it so when I am in I just reel it in with me. lol pretty goofy but I cant just stand there and stare at the truck otherwise. its not on high lifters. I am 5'3. everything is high. like hello there up there? help can you just shove from behind and maybe i can do it? oh heck no.

    i'm beginning to pray for all-over baldness. truly, the only "problem" hair is on my face. i think that chin dagger is a hallmark of having reached maturity. when i was younger it was a big, red, glowing pimple that shouted to the world "Hey, look at me! I have my period!" then as the periods showed up with less and less frequency, a LONG, COARSE and very DARK bayonet grew on the point of my chinny chin chin. blame it on the 3 little pigs! they drew attention to it.-- thank goodness wigs are so realistic now, who'll know? then again, the female pattern baldness has hit and my hair (formerly on top of my head) has now turned whiter and less obvious and my hairline gets drawn in every morning with crayola markers. fortunately, my eyebrows resemble 3 sleeping fuzzy caterpilars ( it's going to be a very cold, long winter). at least my nose hasn't grown too large for my face yet, perhaps because with 3 chins my face is soooo much bigger than ever ( except that 2 weeks i had a face resembling a red basketball inflamed with poison ivy that swelled and immobilized all my features. yay me! how could i know my immunity had worn off?) my gmother once looked me over, as opposed to overlooking me, and declared i wasn't beautiful. or even pretty, but i did have a clean look. figured if i got my face dirty i was doomed to a life of ugly. the payback is i look a great deal like her as i get old-er. still feels like i'm the one suffering. i learned all my backstabbing and tact from her. i do have pretty toes. they make a lovely pattern of straight and crooked. i remember trying to cut dgm's rhino tusk toenails and can muster only profound gratefulness that the toe fungus i have makes the nails soft enough to peel. my ankles and feet now are very patriotic-- white fungal nails, red athlete's foot, and blue varicose veins. i'm a yankee doodle dandy! i have developed a strange finger arthritis. my thumbs are curling in and the tallest, longest, most readily noticed center finger has developed a stiffness that makes it resistant to joining the other fingers in a fist. yes, double eagles! is it any wonder i prefer staying home and quilting? on the positive side i laugh alot and loudly so we can all enjoy the joke, and i do love jokes. thank you, ditter! those maxine cartoons really explain aging accurately and still give me a giggle! thank goodness.

    I on the other hand am tall and stately. Nicely honed and well proportioned. Good perky boobs and a small rounded tush. Beautiful straight teeth and a smile to warm the cockles of your heart. Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's lying in front of ya'll? Now pardon me whilst I go throw up.

    Yikes, I can't wait for all this glorious reallocating of the hair, lol. I have the longest hair on my arms. Luckily I'm the only one who notices it. I use an epilator on my legs, because I'm too cheap to go pay someone to wax them. Yes, it's a little painful, but it's worth it. I used to have those caterpillar eyebrows too, but at 16 or 17 some good friends held me down (with permission) and did away with them. I plucked faithfully until they stopped growing a good number of years ago. I was glad to see them go. My mom's going to be 67 next month, and as far as I know hasn't started with the facial hair yet, and Gramma never did either. I'm hoping that's a sign of things to come, or better yet not come, for me!

    That's not at all fair DustysMom - everyone should have a generous supply of facial hair - moustache, chin, ears, wherever. You're right, not as much arm hair anymore, but always have a profusion of leg hair when it's time to go to the podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon - never fails there.

    LMAO you guys... Vanogay I could tell from here you were tall stately and unaging as ever. How does she do it? I think its oil of olay! or is it vasoline on the mirror AGAIN? I know I was young and pretty once. I had the boys chasing me like I was the next best thing. Now glad there is no chasing (who the heck has energy for that) and it is so not the point of life. I think pretty comes from the inside out. lots of people who are outside pretty and mean as a crocodile. trust them like ...oh never. My father did the same thing Nancia in his own "nice" way. My oldest sister was striking! my next was a classic beauty and me I was cute. I grew up wishing i was a classic beauty but not was the case. Why on earth do people do that to their children or people they love? why not say your all beautiful? labels suck.

    I think the truth is most of us if we look back at us say at 16 or 20 or even 30 think wow I wasn't so bad looking. so I say celebrate it. I am kinda majorly aged since last year but I know hey I had my day. Even at forty I still wore a corsette shirt and had a chest to rival the best and small waste and well looked pretty darned good. I am going to hit my dh computer. I had him put all my pics on a disk for the children to have. me growing up. from baby to now. I was the type who threw away my pics. all in all maybe 40 pictures of me. I always hate how I looked. Oh by was I dumb. lol beats the cartoon maude I am now by oh 10 miles. Will post and share the difference for you all. drink something strong when you look ok?

    ok here is a random thought which is so out there for me right, random thoughts? really??

    what do you sing in the shower? I know you do. I do when no one is listening (ok who would be listening to me in the shower??? NOBODY). what do you think I sing? what is your song you sing most often?
