    “Men accept getting older as a fact of life.” Unless someone notices.
    Last year, I had my first “senior moment.” I got on a bus, and they asked if I was a senior. (I wasn’t.)

    Up until I got a hospital infection, I looked a lot younger than my age.

    After 4 years of that infection, everything aged in a hurry.

    What’s interesting is that my hair turned mostly grey, then when the infection was finally killed off, it turned mostly dark brown again.

    Google the video for “Try” by Colbie Caillat. It’s a great statement about allowing women to just be themselves. (I, for one, am comfortable in my own skin and have never even been tempted towards any kind of cosmetic surgery.)

    A Timeless Quality (attitude) is WAY easier and cheaper; that, and simply avoiding mirrors.

    I was a 36B at 10 years of age. Of course in elementary I was horrified. I was the second tallest girl and the second “largest”. Fast forward to 13. My father had retired from the army and we kept moving until he found a civilian job in a place my mother could stand. By then of course other girls had “outgrown” me. So at 22 when I found out the army would (AT THAT TIME!) put in implants if I paid for them I jumped at the chance. 2 kids & nursing had taken their toll. I got to hold what they would be putting into my body. The saline vs silicone argument was at its peak. The saline ones sloshed in my hand. I asked the doctor if I would feel that inside me. He said that with the larger sizes that yes, some women did experience a “sloshing effect”. Between that & the icky feeling (the outside of both was still silicone) I said forget about it. Now I’m a 46DD long ;)

    Yep. I’m much more upset about how much of my forehead one can now see than the creases in said forehead.

    Can’t say that I have either. But sometimes it depends where one draws the line. How many people will opt for contacts rather than glasses?

    Unlike Joan Rivers. She was really funny on Letterman the other night.

    Best not to get started. My hairdresser here in Argentina, where all the women have long, colored hair no matter their age, asks me every time if he should do something about the gray hairs (I’m 37). I refuse every time. It’s just too ridiculous going from brown to white when you’re 70…

    I’m just glad the bathroom mirror shows me face on and not in profile. ;-)

    John never seems to learn. He should say Elly looks beautiful all the time!
