I have been agonizing over which brushes to buy for horse grooming.  Obsessing really.  Finally, tonight I placed my order.  It went through at 11:59pm.  Thing is, I don't quite have my horse grooming jobs set up.  I believe the potential is great, but it's not in stone yet.

There's a big zit thinking about popping out on my chin. I hope it doesn't come out.

I have an announcement. 

I'm going to continue wearing sleeveless tops.  If I want to wear a sleeveless top, I'm going to wear a sleeveless top. And that's final.  I've read and I've heard no more sleeveless tops after age 50.  I don't like it.  I don't like it a bit.  I notice ladies my age and I don't see them in sleeveless tops.

I'm 50.  I'm not trying to be 20, or 30, or 40.  I've had my day in the sun and do not seek attention.  I have a really good man and I don't care what any others think.  So that's about it.  My imperfect, woggly, yes, wiggly-woggly, upper arms will be seen by the general public and I will do it with my chin up.  That's what I think about that.

Lol... I wore sleeveless tops when I was your age. I even wore bikinis then too. It wasn't until around 55 that I quit going sleeveless (and stopped wearing bathing suits altogether). Something about menopause changes the skin texture and tone no matter how much one works out and, well... I just didn't like the way it looked anymore. But keep it up; it's really nobody's bidness but your own. And, to tell you the truth, I think I'd rather have slightly jiggly arms than super hard ones like Madonna has produced with all her workouts, but that's just me. More power to her - and to you too.

I haven't worn sleeveless tops in years but it has nothing to do with my age. I just don't care for them. If you like them, wear them!

What? You mean I'm still allowed to wear sleeveless tops? I d-o-n-'-t t-h-i-n-k s-o. But if it doesn't bother you, go for it. I just hate the fact that apart from my arms no one would guess me real age. lol

April - I think Madonna looks awful too. Just awful.

FaceToTheSunshine - Hello to you. How is your sweet self?

Jules - I will MAKE YOU wear a sleeveless top with me. Noooo, not really. I take it back. What happened is, I was bending over brushing my hair and I looked at my upper arms. It was nightmarish. It's was horrible. It was like chicken coming off the bone. So, I can wear sleeveless but I must never, ever, ever bend over.
