I actually have to get dressed up tonight
...how hard being 62 is
takes a whole lot more of makeup & jewelry
I'm still adjusting to my new haircut
I now go to Douglass...a self proclaimed dancing queen
I think we are a match
He drives the same kind of car that I do....
oh honey...we are going to get along...he said
when he saw my car...and my leopard car mats
Yeah, I still have a tince of rebel in me
But back to tonight....
It's not a fancy fancy gathering....but fancy enough
.....shucks...I haven't worn my heels in a long time
......that is truly a disgrace and a breaking of my personal rules

Oh how have I strayed so far from what I love to be?

I went to the walking track this morning.....been doing it daily...yeah!
..But it's harder to go an hour
my feet hurt, my shins bellyache
and honestly..it sucks
walking with flaxen-haired little winged Mercuries
flashing by me with those cute shorts...
that I used to wear....oh woe
I am happy to get into my yoga pants
...squeeze...is a better word

So tonight may actually be a good thing.
Though I won't be the babe I once was...in my mind anyway
I still was able to get my feet into those heels
...black ones with sparkles
and it felt good....
.I should do this more often.....

I know my Prince would agree.

  5. Babes are always babes. More mature babes just have a hell of a lot more substance. Rock on, girlfriend!

  6. It does you good to dress up and make yourself remember how good it feels to shine. Have a lovely time and kick off the shoes when the feet hurt. Aching feet show up in your face!

    I should know, not that I wear heels nowadays, too fearful of twisting my ankle after a glass or two.

  10. Hello Suz:
    What enormous fun Douglas sounds to be. Do you think that he would travel?

    And who cares about what has been? It's the now which matters. Enjoy every minute.

    1. Oh Douglas....I could write a whole post about my new found friend....who knew? What I love about him is that he gets me...no old lady here
      The now...yes..the now....but that is something that can easily slip away ....if you are not vigilent
      ...yes every minute
