When everyone was smaller,

When everyone was smaller than me, I used to tell them, "one day they would all be taller and stronger than me. And then, I'd ask them to open the pickle jar."

One day has arrived...

They grow up, get jobs, their own apartments, and have seperate lives. You know you're in trouble when your youngest son has 2 different dates on a Saturday.




You know you're really in trouble when the reading glasses come one, and the wrinkles no longer disappear with the latest anti-wrinkle face cream. (I'm the only one mean enough to man handle the aligator)



Look at my daughter, she's worried about those wrinkles too.

She still has a few years to worry...

Have a great day.

I have been so out of the loop with all that has gone on in my life. So glad you are back to blogging.
I think we need a close up of the "SO CALLED wrinkles". You are too funny!
You are a brave lady for manhandling that alligator.
Hugs and prayers sending your way that all is well. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Wrinkles have been part of my life for many years, but now it's the joints that are going! It is not fun getting older.

You wear the glasses well my beautiful friend! :-D
And why do those dang kids grow up so fast anyway - It does come in handy with that pickle jar though!

I don't mind wrinkles. A friend took a picture of me and edited out all the wrinkles before sending it to me. When I looked at it I was so shocked. I felt like all my character had disappeared. I told her to put them back. I had earned them.

Now as for glasses . . . They are such a little pain. I used to only need them to read small print, but now I need them for anything close up--so I have to carry a pair with me all the time.

I too need those darn reading glasses at times. Boyd keeps telling me that I need to get lineless bifocals that have no prescription on top and reading on the bottom so that I don't have to push them down my nose. Maybe one day...

Lasik got rid of the reading glasses for me - check out the monovision treatment - freakin love it!
If you got wrinkles, than I am the grand canyon of crevices! Just the other day I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror (even with makeup) and seriously didn't recognize the reflection.

I love you handling the alligator!
THAT would give me worry wrinkles.

OK, so what is my excuse. No alligators here.

Love the pix of your beautiful family.

Even I have not blogged for over an year now. Kind-of got busy with things around.
I am sure ur kids must be missing you too. I wish time wouldn't have flew by so fast and I would have had some more time to stay with my parents.
