    I doubt it...think I've seen you @Gary Ridenour.

    Selfies are brutal...best to take a pic in your favorite mirror. :)

    @Chrissy Cross , I couldn't let you be the only one with courage, now could I. Please forgive the nighty. It's been a lazy day for me. I can't believe my hair use to be really dark.

    Wow, your hair is looong! I'm actually in my nightie also but not in my pic. Mine was getting too long and I just had it cut recently.

    My hair feels very short to me. Generally I only cut it every five or six years, or if there is a death in my family. It grows about 8 to 9 inches a year. I tend to feel naked without my long hair, although I do tend to ware it up most of the time.

    Plus I never had time to learn how to fix it, or put on make up for that matter. Then when I did, I felt too old to worry about those things. Now it doesn't matter.

    Too long hair bothers me because then it's too much to clip up. I seldom wear it down and mine grows really fast too.

    I never wear make up at home but Monday I had a drs appt and put some on....that's why I took the pic. :)

    As you can imagine without makeup, I look washed out. My brows and lashes are light.

    Thank goodness I have hair on my head or I'd be like one of those ugly hairless cats. :)

    Well. If @Gary Ridenour had not gotten involved, I would have had to stay away, ladies only! I have no way of taking/sending a selfie, and doubt anyone would care to see it afterwards.

    Might be good for a few laughs, though!

    I want to see you @Frank Sanoica. Don't be shy, that's not like you my friend. Besides it's nice to have an idea of what the people we gab with look like. We're all old. So what. I'm proud to have gotten to this age, many don't, like my two sons.

    There is beauty in a face that has aged. When doing portraits, I always preferred to work with older people, because you can see so much more in their faces than the young. :D:p:rolleyes:

    @Ina I. Wonder
    I'll see what I can do. Lately, I've come to realize that what I see reflected in the mirror is best viewed only from the neck down!

    @Frank Sanoica I think we all bemoan the loss of our youthful looks. But accepting ourselves as we are today is important in how we see ourselves. Most of us earned every wrinkle that our visage displays. So be proud of the ware and tear your face displays. :) :cool:

    I worked hard to get to 64, so I'm proud of every wrinkle and gray hair that I have. :eek: :D When you think about it, what's the alternative? :rolleyes:

    People think I'm a little off because I talk about how happy I am to be 73, but they have no idea of how unlikely I thought it would be that I made it this far.

    @Chris Ladewig
    As usual, my always questioning self, bemoans the fact that corroboration of authenticity is vacant upon images posted. After all, how do you all know I am not an Alien, despite my fancy Avatar?
