What Say You About THIS ...


(PS added)


 ... my new vacay hat?!? 






As longtime readers know, I don't do selfies often, not only because I'm self-conscious/fear judgment, but there's much more interesting pictures to post, and more interesting things to talk about than me, so maybe once a year, like when I got glasses - and I have a hard time with hats (I think because I have a weird-shaped head)  - but I think I'm digging this hat? :)


I don't know, I think something happens to women over 50 (I'm 52) - for some reason, we just suddenly want a big straw vacation hat, and not just sun protection for aging skin (especially on bad hair days)lol.


Now - if I also put zinc oxide on my nose, feel the urge to buy a car that's entirely too big for me like a giant  Lincoln or Oldsmobile, and start wearing all of my jewelry at the same time -  then somebody stop me lol.

And it has to be all three of those things, because zinc oxide to avoid skin cancer isn't a bad thing - and as much as I loved my grandmother, she was a wonderful person, but she, like many older women, drove a boat of a car that was entirely too big for her, plus on Sundays, wore just about every piece of jewelry she owned for church - rings, brooch, necklaces, bracelets, watch, earrings - you name it, she wore it - all at the same time! lol

(Never mind my hair, I'm getting it cut this afternoon, after I cut off all the COVID unhealth myself, a few months ago, and screwed it up lol).


PS - Yes, I know - I'm getting old -  particularly the last three months lines are popping up everywhere.   Ah, well, what can I do but accept it and run with it/have fun anyway!


PS again - my first salon cut since COVID - yes, fixing the color is next, after I screwed up a root dye a week ago lol) :)


(Sorry about the open bathroom door in the background, didn't realize "someone" had left it open when this picture had taken haha!)





And then finally one of us for our new profile pic, at least for now, until we have a better one from our vacay!



And I'm just adding this video because we're in such a happy, good place - ready to go on our first vacay since we married in 2016. 

It was a struggle, after Mark's stroke in 2017 and then COVID - but we did it!

PLUS we've been together for 10 years in October.

This is our song :)

Don't Stop Believin' - Journey with Arnel Pineda - 2018, Comerica Park, Detroit





Just a small town girl
Livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere

Just a city boy
Born and raised in EAST Detroit
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere

A singer in a smokey room
The smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on, and on, and on

Strangers, waitin'
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows
Searchin' in the night

Streetlights, people
Livin' just to find emotion
Hidin' somewhere in the night

Workin' hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice
Just one more time

Some will win
Some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on, and on, and on

Strangers waitin'
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows
Searchin' in the night
Streetlights, people
Livin' just to find emotion
Hidin' somewhere in the night

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight, people
Don't stop, believin'
Hold on
Streetlights, people
Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight, people
