She submitted a video as part of a contest, and was chosen from that.

Here's the DW and I from Sept. at the Grand Canyon. She gets fun, toe tingling reactions from her friends when she shows them.

Over at DW's daughter's Christmas Day; their eldest daughter, (post #1327), who turned 4 five days earlier, was doing the usual kid thing...not wanting to eat certain items on her plate.

Dad said "If you eat that, then you can have some of this"........while she was eating he tried to introduce certain modifications.........she put down her fork, looked at him, and said "That wasn't the deal!"

Here's a photo of me holding the 5 lb. Hershey's chocolate bar I ordered from Amazon a while back. The online photo and description don't really convey how huge this thing is. At the moment it's broken up and put in ziplock bags in the refrigerator. I'm pretty sure it will be a while before we run out of chocolate.

Oh, holy night!! That would be a problem for me in my house! As I am still working I would chop it up in small pieces and take it to work. I DON'T need that temptation around !!

Probably my most recent photo, and the last one taken at work!

Been growing my hair for a few years. When it started getting noticeably long my daughter said, "Mom! When are you going to cut your hair?!" I said, "When I'm sitting on it."

Lovely pictures.

I did a photo like that, but the angle was not as well thought out, and the wind blew my hat off - I instinctively grabbed for it and nearly fell off the cliff

That hair is beautiful! I do want purple streaks but, I've previously used henna. I tried the purple in a test streak and it only turned the grey purple, it made the rest just really dark. I am hesitant to do anything damaging after so many years of protecting it.

My eldest sister has totally white, long hair and she just got pastel pink, purple, blue, green done and it's so pretty.

Thank you. I like it. The colorist has to use "vivid" colors, and they need to have experience or it can be a disaster. You can use Yelp to find someone if you decide to do it. 😊

Setting up my yearly earthbox garden on my deck...teaching my neighbor how to do it, and she insisted on paying me in grapefruit vodka drinks.
