Fears as we get older…


There certain numbers of fears we have, I think, as we get older. Some of them are,  feeling that we are not relevant any more, that what we have to say is not appreciated or totally ignored, but mostly for women is the one of getting wrinkles and those marionette lines.  If I could come up with something to inflate that area, the lines around my mouth,  I could be 110% gorgeous.  I am now 100%, but like the probabilities of being a tiny bit better.  I have never been known to be modest.  Why change at this stage?

I have to laugh when I read some comments being made anywhere about us, the “older, dumb, don’t get it, don’t understand, senile, deaf, (this one I use at my convenience), little old lady, she doesn’t know”, and a myriad of adjectives, nouns and other fancies used to describe us all, the baby boomer generation and the generation before us.  What are they called, I wonder…

What are we to do?  Speaking for myself…let them think whatever they want…I am having it my way and dancing all the way to my daily life of happiness.  When “they” get to this stage in life, only the good Lord knows how these much younger generations, that have their eyes glued to a tv screen, a smart tablet or phone, that cannot have a conversation without checking their “smart” thing, will make it.  May the Lord have mercy on those of “them” that are putting labels on us now.

One of my fantasies is that by that time, the time when these younger things get older, the production of hair-coloring-products would be non-existent…that will teach them all the lessons in one bottle.  It would be close to the end of the world…talking for myself.  Can you imagine a whole population of people with white or gray hair?  Horror of horrors.

Remember, we’ve been there, done that and are coming back, twice, from where you are headed to.

Good luck, or as the French say…Bon Courage!

Loving my life as it is…very happy with my monthly hair coloring session.  Cannot imagine my life without it.  Color 4G, because I am worth it.

Business Idea…


Sunglasses for lizards!

I think this is a marvelous business idea…but first need to get a manufacturer in the United States, because it needs to be an American product.  Only buy things made in the good old U.S.A.  Sorry China, maybe some other time.

Now, back to the mini-tiny sunglasses.  I like the idea of all black, like the very world-famous Ray Bans.  These will be called Liz Ban.  Cool.  Maybe in the future I will add some color.  What about a case for the sunglasses?  All fake leather, because do not want to hurt these prospective customers’ feelings.  Oh yes, need to develop glass cleaner to be handled with tiny little toes.

What do you think?  I really think I have too much time in my hands, and frankly, I just had my first great laugh of the year.

Not so hot an idea…right!  I need to continue searching for another big-business-bam- idea.  Suggestions need not to apply.  Thank you very much.

Well…another sunny day in Florida watching the little lizards sunbathe themselves.

Back from the land of Oz…..


Now, finally I am back in cold, rainy, Florida. Hello sunshine, where are thou?

Had a fantastic time while in the land of Oz, where the biggest collection of clowns reside in what we call the United States Capitol.  Sarcasm was not my intention to start the new year with.

Happy 2013!!!!!

That’s better.  I had a happy, happy again and more happy time with my lovely daughter, her fiance, my grand-doggie, Baxter Brown, and my very good friend Miss Lucy.

Good food, good times, good cheer, but good to be back on my own bed and plenty of time to watch my ever missed Hispanic soap operas.  Have watched at least fifteen episodes.  I recorded four of them, times number of days I was away…whole weekend to catch up.  I have such a great life.

That’s it!  Needed to change all the glitter and poinsettia.

My best wishes for a healthy, happy, prosperous New Year.
