Susie.

I agree with you. I try to pencil in my brows, and even that much color is too much with my fading skin and lighter hair. I would hate to see a tattooed eyebrow in ten years, if that is what permanent color is...Is that what it is?

Just another thought on the topic. Will be interested to hear others responses.

I can see where having the eyebrows done could present a problem as gravity takes over and sagging occurs. Heck, the way my face has begun to sag, I'd be afraid what started out as eyebrows today would closer resemble a mustache 10 years down the road.

I definitely would consider having a little bit of eye liner tattooed on, however, and it is on my to-do list.

Ohmygosh! This eyebrow thing is getting scary.

Today -- Lovely eyebrows

Tomorrow -- Turning into the Frito Bandito!

Advice -- Just wear bangs.

Boomer,

You make a great point about the bangs. I have worn bangs almost my entire life, well at least since I knew how to pull them down, and I have never plucked an eyebrow or used eyebrow pencil. Im not even aware I have eyebrows. What a great time saver!

I suppose when they start sagging below my nose I will have to do something about them, but until then..... easy peasy!

Hi Nonie,

Me, too. Been wearing bangs all my life. And I bet you have noticed something else about that, in addition to not having to think so much about eyebrows....

Have you ever noticed how good the skin still looks under those bangs? If you have never noticed, go take a look in the mirror. My forehead is at least 20 years younger than the rest of me. All those years of a built-in sun screen. Who knew?

Boom, you are funny! I have also noticed that my forehead is definitely 25 years old under my bangs. But sadly, it is the one part of my body that no-one sees. They just see the bits that look like my grandmother.

Default Polly's Pantry

Went with some friends to an adorable little place in Wildwood for lunch today. It is called Polly's Pantry and a wonderful English couple own it. They
serve delicious lunches and teas, great place for a girl's day out. The website is www.hopeinyourheart.com

Default Tongue-in-cheek warning to women....

WARNING TO WOMEN!!

Some of you may have already been warned of this.....

My thighs were stolen from me during the night a few years ago. I went to sleep and woke up with someone else's thighs. It was just that quick. The replacements had the texture of cooked oatmeal. Whose thighs were these and what happened to mine? I spent the entire summer looking for my thighs.

Finally, hurt and angry, I resigned myself to living out my life in jeans. And then the thieves struck again.

My bum was next. I knew it was the same gang, because they took pains to match my new rear-end to the thighs they had stuck me with earlier.

But my new bum was attached at least three inches lower than my original! I realized I'd have to give up my jeans in favour of long skirts.

Two years ago I realized my arms had been switched.

One morning I was drying my hair and was horrified to see the flesh of my upper arm swing to and fro with the motion of the hairbrush. This was really getting scary - my body was being replaced one section at a time.

What could they do to me next?

When my poor neck suddenly disappeared and was replaced with a turkey neck, I decided to tell my story. Women of the world wake up and smell the coffee! Those 'plastic ' surgeons are using REAL replacement body parts -stolen from you and me! The next time someone you know has something 'lifted', look again - was it lifted from you?

THIS IS NOT A HOAX. This is happening to women everywhere every night.

WARN YOUR FRIENDS!

P.S. Last year I thought some one had stolen my Boobs. I was lying in bed and they were gone! But when I jumped out of bed, I was relieved to see that they had just been hiding in my armpits as I slept. Now I keep them hidden in my waistband.

Thought this was too 'important' not to pass on. Have a wonderful day - with a joy filled heart.

P.P.S. - These same thieves went into my wardrobe and shrunk my clothes! How do they do it????

Just thought you should know.

Barb, I always laugh when I read this, especially the part about oatmeal thighs and boobs hiding in armpits. I just love living in a retirement community. So at the pool, we're all in the same shape!

Actually, I am going to have the vaccine myself. I had chickenpox as a child and that puts me in the group that can get shingles because the virus never leaves your body and can re-occur as singles. That is a very painful condition.....
But that doesn't change the fact that Bare and Chels are "nutcases" Hahahaha
