Aging

"The years had nibbled away the clear-cut contours and it was a high-risk strategy to get straight out of bed and count on looking fine. No, more than that: it was impossible."

Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman by Elizabeth Buchan

Fortunately, as we age we no longer care as much about looking fine right out of bed!

Maybe so, but I don't leave the house dressed like a slob with no make-up.

Oh, Holly, you are SO right! If my hair and teeth are brushed, my clothes are clean, and I don't smell bad, I'm pretty much good to go! The make-up and careful attention to detail can be saved for important occasions.

Since I have made the decision to never again cut my hair, it is a bit on the scary side first thing out of the sack. It was October of last year since I got a haircut. Had to look "presentable" for the new job. Wife's idea. Since I have had the go around with cancer, been made a grandpa x 8 and did the time for God And Country, yeah, I can. Besides, I work on fighter planes. Not one of your pretty jobs!
