I predict tattoo removal might be a big thing in the future, as Generation X sags and wrinkles.

Don't think so. However, my eyelids are sagging low and if they eventually block my vision I may have surgery. On the other hand, being frugal, I may look into some piercing and use a pair of metal rings to hold up my eyelids.

You are quite right about that. Had the lipo done 4-5 years ago and held my weight steady until last winter, when work got real stressy and I put on 6 pounds. Even with that small a gain I could observe that the weight comes back in different places than before. I don't want to even imagine what it would look like if I gained 20+ pounds.

Anyway, I got back on the bandwagon, dropped the 6 pounds, lookin' good again.

Lipo is definitely not a quick or easy fix. I've seen TV programs where a mother and daughter go in together for lipo to help lose some weight. What are they thinking! <slaps forehead> Wait until they put that weight back on, oh boy!

Oh my God, not the forehead!

Re:saddlebags- years ago I was prejudiced against saddlebags. Now I would like to get friendly with a couple of nice big ones. They do say-"Life is change."
