    I agree Linda, if people don't like us, or even act like they hate us, it's because they are not happy within themselves. They tend to take it out on others:( I'm sorry that happened to you Chrissy. I have a family that feels that way about me, or at least the way they have treated me seems like they can't stand me, don't accept me.

    @Linda Binning, I just saw what you said because Denise just quoted it. Easy to miss some things on here.

    That's a possibility but I really don't know. I can never think too long about him and his reasons why, it just upsets me too much. I try to forget.

    Lately I'm seeing a lot more of the Warrior in the mirror... life seems to call for more than kitty cats most days. :)

    I picture myself as being much younger than I am. I don't think it's a matter of vanity really, because I have never pictured myself as being particularly handsome, but I don't think of myself as being nearly sixty-five.

    I think I'm much more "handsomer" at 65 than I was at any other age in my life.:D Now if this old body could just keep up with the rest of me. :)

    Because of the florescent lighting I see a white haired, blue veined monster staring staring back at me, replete with acne rosacea and scars from recently removed basal cell cancers. I'm gonna have to change that damn lighting.

    A family get together this past weekend. A lot of photos were taken. When I look in the mirror, I think, 'Not bad for an old man.' When I look at one of those photos taken of me, I think it's somebody else, hope it's somebody else.

    When I look in the mirror now, I like what I see much more than what I saw in my youth. My face shows the journey I've been traveling. When I was young most people made the assumption that my life was easy because I was pretty. For some reason people thought that made dealing with the world less challenging than it was for others.

    Now I feel that people don't look at my outer shell so much, and they are able to see who I really am. They hear me instead of just seeing me. :rolleyes:

    Look again at the penguins! I glanced at the picture, then read the caption, looked again, and the caption made no sense. I thought the left penguin was tightening a noose about his neck, ready to hang himself! Then it dawned! The "rope" was the corner of the room.

    Such error stems from having a highly "artistic" mind, don'tcha think?

    The idea of a penguin wearing a tie and glasses, is funny all by itself.

    @Joe Riley, I've been up a couple of hours, so to pass the time I'm here reading old posts. After reading that you counted your mirrors, I had to do the same. I have three. No wonder the kids fought so in the mornings.
