Carn e Be All Y'all!

This is the Carn e Be All Y'all! Well that is how Dan and Ellie say it anyway. Grandpa's work Flowserve once a year has a carnival. Let me tell you it is tons of fun(yawn). Hot, sticky, and strangers! Sounds like an on line porn site. Now I did meet up with a friend and we talked shop for about and hour while grandpa trudged around with the two wee ones. It is kind of fun! When our children were little it was on a Saturday and lasted most of the day. They also had really cool prizes. Not anymore, three hours, some kind of slimy stuff for a prize, hamburgers, cookies, cotton candy(yum)some fun carni rides and we're home. Lucy had just about had enough fun, I lost Ellie on some jumpy thingy, so it was time to go!

I'm going grey and it's OK! Hey I'm a poet. Craig isn't to fond of it I say too bad so sad. I am a rebel. I've decided to blatantly ignore Hollyweird, and the media. I will not let them dictate what I should look like! I'm 52, it's OK if I'm a bit wrinkly, and 1/3 of the way grey. I like the way my grey shimmers in the sunlight as I'm driving around town with my sunroof open. I can always go back and color if I want to. I am woman and I can change my mind! I hate looking around my ward (church) and see the wax-like features of some women. Breast standing at full attention! Not a wrinkle in site, not a laugh lines, not a frown, or a worried line, in fact no expression whatsoever. I work with Autistic children and one of the main characteristics is not being able to read faces! I'm beginning to feel a bit Autistic! I mean it's great to take care of yourself with diet, and exercise(which I definitely could use), coloring your hair, wearing make-up, but to go under the knife, or needle for a younger appearance seems a bit drastic to me. What are we saying to our young women who struggle with their body image anyway? I keep thinking it must be an esteem issue, and that makes me sad. Women you are all beautiful! Come on don't be scared, join the fight rebel!
