    Prostar - I had to laugh at the little girl playing your flab like bongos I do the same thing to mine - especially when it's tight as a drum - get some good sound off of that.
    I didn't grow up, I just got older- makes it easier to laugh.[​IMG]


    My younger niece used to idolize me ,at a rare glitch in time, when I was slim and attractive (1972). She was helping me with an outfit, in the fitting room. kinda magenta halter-back jumpsuit (think they called 'em) with a short jacket like a bullfighter & looked like it was sprayed on. I almost had curves showing. She was standing on the bench so she could zip me up in back. She looked at my reflection in the mirror and said "Aunt _____ you are beautiful!". I got such a kick out of that.

    Later, my pseudo boyfriend( who turned out to be gay -" Not that there is anything wrong with that" as Jerry Seinfeld would say, declared I could NOT EVER wear it without the jacket. First time we went out (Cocker spaniel specialty show *) , as soon as he turned his back I took the jacket off. Woo woo I got attention - and it all went to my head. For a few hours I thought I was gorgeous like Cher. That was my first and last crowning moment. It still lives on in my memory banks. I can't believe I had the guts to disobey him. I was a total mouse.

    * We both raised Cocker spaniels, he was an up and coming dog handler (a great one) and I was his flunky (who could get ALL the mats out). Now you know the rest of the story.[​IMG]

    Lol I (and her mommy!) got some good giggles out of it.

    We were also having fun playing hide from mama in the various stores. Got me some hilarious looks in wal mart. Cause come on. If you got a cute toddler wanting to hide with you, you hide! And run around wal mart with "sneaky feet" ;)

    Well i had fun last night, NOT ...My daughter came over at 12pm and was in desparation and tears. She is going away this weekend with new new boyfriend, who has a Porsche and owns a Trout Farm (had to put that in).lol She wanted to colour her hair at the ends in pink (god knows why), but its the in thing apparently. Anyway her efforts had resulted in a 'possum' look so she wanted me to fix. Crazy color 'pinkissimo' was the offending stuff, I got out my gloves and worked it into to a paste and went strand by strand until it evened out, suddenly noticing that my gloves were rapidly disintergrating. Well i persisted as she was determined and when Leo's have their mind set on things you don't deviate.

    After covering everything including the cat in 'pinkissimo' we managed to get the effect she wanted. All I can say is I hope I get some free trout.........

    ???? Your gloves were disintegrating? From the hair stuff? Or were they old - I hope! Egads! Glad you fixed the issue.
