Pin It

Soooooo, Sheila's birthday is coming up and she's still acting a little nutty about aging in general and her looks in particular.

When I stopped by last evening, I found her staring into a mirror, her poor DH standing by with that deer-in-the-headlights look.

"Have you seen this?" she asked, pointing to a gray hair in her bangs.

"What?" he asked innocently. "The wrinkles?"

Eeeeek!

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!
