Is Life Crazy Or Is It Me?

Before I do this weeks blog I want to acknowledge the "sisterhood" with an award. It's one just to keep or pass on if and when you feel it's time.



This award I want to give to:

Jesuree, Sia, Carol, Dottie, Lea, Elissa Wilds, Christine, Judi, Blodeuedd, Cecile, Kelly Moran, Angie Fox, M.V., C.L. Wilson, Leontine, Jenn J., Stephani E, Erotic Horizon, Liza, Danni, Sha & Michelle, Cathie Caffey, Wendi B., Amy C., Becke, Heidi V, Brook Reviews, Yvonne and Michelle G.

I want to thank you all for being a part of the sisterhood and all you add to this blog just by being here! CYBER HUGS.


Now...here we go with the blog... So when does life stop getting crazy?

Is it me or is life just crazy these days? When I was “younger” it seemed to me the older generation said things like that. For some odd reason – they just didn’t “Get it”. I wasn’t sure why? Life was life…nothing seemed different to me.

Then one day when I was about thirty, I noticed for the first time in my life, I wasn’t the youngest person in the room anymore.
At thirty-five I noticed the news Anchorwoman was younger than me and a lot of the movie stars where getting younger and younger. What was going on in Hollywood these days, I’d wondered.
At forty I got up one morning and by Jesus someone had changed bodies on me…my skin suddenly wasn’t my skin…it felt different and look way different…it wasn’t the skin I’d gone to bed with…what happened?
At forty-five the same thing happened – I went to bed with muscle tone and woke up the next day with none! What the BeJesus happened during the night?
Had an alien ship from Mars come down and snatch me body of all my muscle tone to keep as nourishment for their young? WHY ME??? That wasn’t fair.

My sister said we were just getting old…it was expected…well it wasn’t expected by ME!!! Someone forgot to fill me in on this aging process…I had been under the impression that age crept up on you…well, my old age didn’t!
It takes me in leaps and bounds. I’m fine one day – looking good for my age and then BAM! I wake up to a whole new person in the mirror the next day!

Believe me! I tell no lies! One day a few years ago I turned fifty - I celebrated my birthday with an upper lip, but the next morning, when I get up – it was missing! I looked every where for it…I even looked behind me ears thinking it may have slipped off my face during the night and got lost behind an ear flap…but no, my upper lip is gone…like a lost puppy - never to return.
No lie…just look at the picture on this blog – NO UPPER LIP to speak of! I had one; it was a cute bee stung lip! I’ve got old picture to prove it! I know I’M NOT CRAZY, so its got to be the world, right?!

I even put out REWARD POSTERS all over town for my lost upper lip but no one has called me to collect the Reward. So tell me, how does someone lose a lip? Is the world crazy or is it just me?

Hm can't say, since I am only 26 but I have noticed that my boobs are not as high up as they used to be..or did they just get bigger, hm.

Thanks for the sweet award :D
Awwww I love it

Stephanie Faris said...

I'm 38 and I've noticed that about muscle tone already. I thought it was my weight, so I lost down to where I was a few years ago and I still looked flabby...muscle weighs more than fat. So to look as I did 4 years ago I'd have to lose 5 more pounds or start going to the gym...which was a battle I just decided wasn't worth it.

M.V.Freeman said...

Thank you for the award! Cyber hugs back to you Hawk!!

I was told by my Gynecologist a year or so ago, that "You're getting older" and that was that.

I told him, "Sure, I'm getting older, but I don't have to like it or go down happily."--no wonder he edged away from me.

Some age gracefully and enjoy each stage..I am not doing so well. I hate the aches and pains that go with it, the skin that has decided to give up on me, and the body that has its own mind (who knew by rear could spontaeously expand on its own?)

You opened a pandora's box on this one Hawk! LOL, Tell you what, if I find your missing lip, I'll pass it on....!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Blodeuedd! }:-/

As the "Soup Nazi" guy said on Seinfeld said -

"NO SOUP FOR YOU!"

I say, "NO HUG FOR YOU TODAY!"
OMG 26!!!!???

Girls, shall we get her now or later?

Darlin' those boobs are getting bigger at that age...I know mine did when I was in me twenties.
At 26 I don't think your body knows what SAG means! Mine didn't when I was your age. And no, it doesn't stand for the Screen Actors Guild! It stands for Seriously Aging Goddessess!
LOL, Hey, I gotta stay positive...I put out a blog about that if I remember correctly! ;0)

Envy hugs of your youth.
xoxo
Hawk P.S. Just promise me, you'll enjoy that body while you've got it...treat it right and aging will be easier...so eat your alfalfa sandwiches!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Stephanie!

OMG, you're beautiful...38!!???
I'm I the only old one here?

Yes, I still go to the gym everyday to work out...not really for the body but for the energy...16 hour days get harder to do when you're over half a century old! I need all the energy I can get.

Girl, looking at your pic....you don't need a gym...you're beautiful!

Hugs
Hawk

Lea said...

ROFLMAO!!

OMG Hawk, you are a HOOT... Awesome post and I think you are quite correct. I've been feeling the same way lately and made a decision to institute a better time management policy. lol

As for the skin and the lip, well damn scary isn't it?? My driver's licence photo this year frightened the dickens out of me...

Yeah, it's a crazy life and things don't seem to be slowing down any.

Man, you made me cackle today!!!

Thank you so much for the wonderful awad, that is a nice one..

Best

My Blog 2.0 (Dottie) said...

Hi Hawk!

Thanks for the beautiful blog award, hugs and kisses to you babe!

I wish I was one of those graceful at any age type of people. You know, those loose limbed types that stay long and lanky, draped over their surrounding with sultry eyes, look great at any age. Well, I'm the polar opposite, short, starting to get chubby and rounder with a squint. lol.

Something you didn't mention is that my hair isn't as thick and lustrous as it once was, and gray is starting to peek out.

Odd, I still feel eighteen most mornings, 25 by midafternoon, 35 by evening, and 80 by the night bedtime rolls around. I've developed aches and pains that aren't all that pleasant. Gravity has attacked my body and now I have to squeeze things into their proper position. Lift and separate has become lift and elevate.

Am I aging gracefully? Nah, but if I end up looking like my beautiful Grams, I'll be happy. Right now, I'm kind of feeling like the boxer she had when I was a kid.

Pssst....In case your lip has made it to the Midwest, I've put signs up here too. I've also added my waist to the poster, I know I used to have one, really.

(((hugs)))

Dottie :)

Houston A.W. Knight said...

M.V.!!!

Hey Sweetie...OMG, yes, I remember the "You're getting older" remark being said when I hit 45...I wasn't real happy about that remark either...but the worst one was when the doctor said to me at 50 "well, you're old..." whatever he said after that I didn't hear....I was too busy wondering why the room had suddenly been painted red with flames from Hades accenting the edges of the walls, and the devil's whispered words "Kill the Doctor" echoed in my head
{:-O
Did I just say that out loud?
Sorry.
Never mind.

(((I told him, "Sure, I'm getting older, but I don't have to like it or go down happily."--no wonder he edged away from me))))

ROTFLOL! It's in our eyes...when a man sees that flame... a smart one knows to BACK ALL THE WAY UP!

(((Some age gracefully and enjoy each stage..I am not doing so well.)))
They keep saying I am, but you know, it doesn't look like that to me nor does it feel like that to me! Like you, I am not going down without a good Irish Fight!

Hon...looking at your picture...you look great to me...so where are you hiding your old age? Honestly, you don't look more than 28.

(((I hate the aches and pains that go with it, the skin that has decided to give up on me, and the body that has its own mind (who knew by rear could spontaeously expand on its own?))))
OMG!!! ROTFLOL! You're funny...I love the rear image! LOL
Me bum stayed put it's my thighs that are the problem...I can't stand them!

((((You opened a pandora's box on this one Hawk! LOL,)))
LOL...it was bad of me I know! But I'm working through this and you girls of the sisterhood are just going to have to help me!
Since I'm the eldest one HERE and having to walk the path first!

(((Tell you what, if I find your missing lip, I'll pass it on....!)))

LOL...Ah, ya'er a dear! I'll be lookin' for it in the mail...I've missed it so. Would be easier drinkin' me Irish coffee in the mornin' if I had it! ;-)

Hugs
I've got a PE coming your way later, hon!
Hawk

Blodeuedd said...

haha yes I am just a kid :)
But I never knew the would get bigger and then just a few years ago I noticed it, I am still not used to the jump in a size.

I promise to take care of my body, and I do know we have some better food and things here. Even a few countries away in Europe have so much more unhealthy bread and milk than we do. Cos I am a choco-holic so that will not change, but some thing I try to do.

I will have a lookout for that missing lip ;)

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Oh My God, Blodeuedd - don't tell me my lip made it all the way over there!

(((...I am just a kid)))
We know. [:-}
Envy filled tone here.

(((But I never knew they would get bigger and then just a few years ago I noticed it,)))
NOW YOU'RE RUBBIN' IT IN LASS!!! /:-[

(((I am still not used to the jump in a size.)))
{8-O OH! Get her girls! Get her!!!

LOL - 'tis just a mighty good thing that we love ya' lass!

(((I promise to take care of my body, and I do know we have some better food and things here. Even a few countries away in Europe have so much more unhealthy bread and milk than we do.)))

I agree - you're country and European countries have a better start on "good foods" compared to those of us here in America. I have a blog coming up on that!

((( Cos I am a choco-holic so that will not change)))
LOL, you're a woman - that can NEVER CHANGE!

Oh BTW - if your boobs get too big... I have storage rooms over here on my chest to handle any extra you want to get rid of. Giggle. Storage fees are free. OH, and there is no return policy. ;-)

Hugs baby girl!
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

LEA!!! Hugs darlin'!

(((OMG Hawk, you are a HOOT)))

LOL, this is what I love about you Lea...you always get my odd sense of humor. Glad I made you laugh. They say we stay younger if we can really laugh hard two or three times a day. My goal is to keep us all young!

(((Awesome post and I think you are quite correct. I've been feeling the same way lately and made a decision to institute a better time management policy. lol)))

TIME MANAGEMENT POLICY? Ah Ha, so that's what I've been doing wrong - I didn't think of this! So, how does it work? I'm all ears and you don't have to worry about me interrupting, if you didn't hear... I lost my lip...so I can't talk real well...that is until Blodeuedd send me my found lip.

(((As for the skin and the lip, well damn scary isn't it??)))
All kidding aside...I really do miss my lip. There are some changes I can accept but others, like my lip, I'm not happy about. I thought as long as I kept me teeth I wouldn't have to worry about the lost lip, but turst me, you do! All my teeth are me own (but I expect to keep them to me dying day - me dad had all his teeth when he left this world) So, I think I'll have mine...Thank the gods...if I lose me teeth I can't imagine what I'd look like then...I guess I'd look like the Grays (aliens) with no mouth at all!

(((My driver's licence photo this year frightened the dickens out of me...)))

ROTFLOL...OMG, so did mine!

(((Yeah, it's a crazy life and things don't seem to be slowing down any.)))

Oh, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but...since I'm the oldest one here...it me job! It doesn't slow down, hon. It get's faster...like a rollercoaster ride from hades...it gets faster and faster and faster until....well, I don't know yet, I haven't gotten that far...but when I do I'll let you know.

(((Man, you made me cackle today!!!)))

LOL - this is a good thing!xoxox I made me goal for the day then!

(((Thank you so much for the wonderful award, that is a nice one..)))

TOO THE SISTERHOOD!
Hugs and Love

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Me Sweet Dottie!

You're welcome and big hugs and kisses back to you!

(((I wish I was one of those graceful at any age type of people.)))

Ooh, you and me both, darlin'. Me twin is one of those...God love her, but to be honest, she had more to work with than me. She was the prettiest of us two, so she has beauty to spare. She can lose half her beauty and only be were I'm at now with 2/3rd of mine gone!

(((You know, those loose limbed types that stay long and lanky, draped over their surrounding with sultry eyes, look great at any age.)))

Oh, so you've met me twin, have ya'?
See what I have to deal with on a daily thing? It's bad enough to age but as a twin you get a daily reminders that you're getting older faster than your other half EVERY TIME YOU LOOK AT HER AND SHE'S STILL LOOKING GREAT! Waaah, and she was born first by ten minutes!!!!

(((Well, I'm the polar opposite, short, starting to get chubby and rounder with a squint. lol.)))

LOL, Dottie..you're making me laugh so hard I hurt!

(((Something you didn't mention is that my hair isn't as thick and lustrous as it once was)))

Now that I kept...'tis why I didn't mention it. But me twin does complain about thinning hair.

(((and gray is starting to peek out.)))

OH PLEASE Peeking!? I'm so gray I make a cloudy day look sunny.

(((Odd, I still feel eighteen most mornings, 25 by midafternoon, 35 by evening, and 80 by the night bedtime rolls around.)))
ROTFLOL

(((I've developed aches and pains that aren't all that pleasant. Gravity has attacked my body and now I have to squeeze things into their proper position. Lift and separate has become lift and elevate.)))

ROTFLOL - YOUR KILLING ME HERE.

(((Am I aging gracefully?)))
YES!A little birdy told me you were!

((((Pssst....In case your lip has made it to the Midwest,)))

ROTFLOL, I think Blodeuedd said she spotted it in Finland, perhap your waist thumbed a ride there as well!

(((I've put signs up here too. I've also added my waist to the poster, I know I used to have one, really.)))

LOL...you're too funny!

Hugs and kisses
Hawk

Lea said...

Sorry Hawk, but you are not the oldest one here! I AM!!!

lol I was born in 431 AD - (just kidding)...

L

Houston A.W. Knight said...

LOL...Lea...431 A.D.!!! O.K., and I'll buy the London bridge from ya' too!

I saw your toes, young lady! They were not toes of an old woman! I'd say you weren't older than 30 35 max!
So...how close am I? Do I get an award?

ROTFLOL...I adore you, hon!
Hugs and more hugs
Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

LEA!

I take that guess back - I just went back to look at your older blogs and I saw the fish swim top and other clothing and I say you can't be more than 28
33 max!!!! IF THAT! Toes are like hands - they always look older than we are!

So fess up - you opened this can of worms...HOW OLD ARE YOU?

Hugs
Hawk

Cecile said...

Hey Hawk... I am finally making it here. Thank you so much for the award. You are such a sweetheart of a dear friend to bestow that to me! I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Thank you!

Girl, your post to is funny... I will keep an eye open for your lip. And I will help you get Blodeuedd... She is something else!!!
But I will **duck my head and hide... I am 33*** But I will tell my tales too... I can not stand what gravity does to boobs! I refuse to look into the plastic ones, but damnit... cant the real ones just stay up! And yea, I had prefect straight hair, I mean straight hair... till I turned 30... turned 30, now I have to deal with this nasty wavy crap that I keep under a bun or ponytail!! And what is with the under the arm muscle... It waves back at me when I wave to someone.. What is the deal!!!! And what the hell does happen to the muscle that we build up... where the hell did that go!!!
Oh the wonders of getting older... but I refuse to grow older!! My age may go up, but I my attitude will never grow up!!!
Wonderful post as always Hawk!!!
I hope you had a great weekend!!! And have an awesome Monday!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile,

(((Girl, your post is too funny)))

LOL, but don't laugh too hard... you girls are following me!

(((I will keep an eye open for your lip.)))
Blodeuedd found it in Finland with Dotties waist!
;-D

(((And I will help you get Blodeuedd... She is something else!!!)))

A sweetheart she is...even if she rubs in that 26 year old thing on us! ;-)

(((But I will **duck my head and hide... I am 33)))

{8-O That's not old! OMG, I am the only person here that's OLD!

(((what gravity does to boobs! I refuse to look into the plastic ones,)))

Oh, I'm sooooo tempted, but I'm sure the doc would say "you're so old, what could you possibly want with them?" Like someone my age wouldn't need them! Have I got news for those young snooty Doctors...somethings never change..needing boobs is one of them.

(((but damnit... cant the real ones just stay up!)))

LOL...but I've heard from men that's what they like - the movement...fake ones don't have the sway.

(((And yea, I had prefect straight hair,)))

OMG, the same thing happened to my straight hair, but that didn't happen for me until I was 49 or 50. It's not real bad...as you can see from my picture - I can still wear it down, but it does curl at the neck area. I think the weight of the hair keeps the rest from waving up more.

(((And what is with the under the arm muscle...)))

{{8-D ROTFLOL!!!

(((It waves back at me when I wave to someone.)))

Oh, oh...my sides are hurting! You're making me laugh too hard!

(((And what the hell does happen to the muscle that we build up... where the hell did that go!!!)))

When you find out the answer...let me know.

(((Oh the wonders of getting older... but I refuse to grow older!! My age may go up, but I my attitude will never grow up!!!))

WooHOOO I'm with you on this! We're only as old as we think we are, right?

((Wonderful post as always Hawk!!!))

Ah, we do have fun don't we! Thank's for being apart of the sisterhood...you all make my days with your words!

Hugs, Darlin'
Hawk

Blodeuedd said...

Lol yes your lip and Dotties waist can be found here, maybe I should mail them to you both before they run away to Siberia.

Are you all ganging up on poor little me, I really should not say this, but someone actually mistook me for 18 once, how rude, and I who had tried to dress professional. But that makes me look younger, I really should wear glasses cos then I look almost my age. You should see my boyfriend when he has shaved though, that is freaky.

I blame it on non drinking, smoking, not much sun up here. it keeps the skin younger.

So weird, when I was 15 I could be mistaken for 18-20 and then I got stuck in that age. I bet when I am 30 I suddenly look 40

Still wanna hunt me down now ;)
And Cecile is sure young too, let's get her instead

Cecile said...

Blodeuedd... Oh no honey, we are after you now!!! **Wicked grin** You are still the baby here!!! And then you are rubbing it in now... lol!!!! Girl... put this aside and enjoy all the compliments you get!!! They do wonders for your soul!

But watch out for us though... we will get "my pretty and your little dog too" (from Wizard of Oz)!!! LMAO!!!

Hawk! OMG... I was dying laughing reading your post!
Honey, that is why I give myself a party every year. I refuse to grow up! OH and the hair...OMG... I know exactly what you are talking about... I have those curls too... right at the base of my hair line... But you are right... the weight of this heavy crap keeps the curls at bay.. thank goodness!
So, your lip and Dottie's waist are with Blodeuedd in Finland... Maybe that is where my boobs are headed!!! And that damn under arm muscle to!
Honey, you know I would not miss coming over here!!! This is a second home for me!!!
I hope you have a great day... and I will be with you on the next plane to go tackle Blodeuedd!!! LOL!!!

Vicki said...

OMG Hawk, this post had me laughing so hard. It's a good thing I'd put down my coffee before I read it. :)

It's so true. At 51 nothing is quite where it used to be. And my backside (while plenty wide) is flat as can be. I need one of those bottom thingy's. Heehee.

And boobs? Oh lord, now that there's no real muscle holding them up, the weight is crazy. I feel like that cartoon character. If I didn't wear the really heavy duty bra's they'd be hanging where they surely don't belong. Okay, that may have been a little TMI. But you know it's true.

Reading everyone's comments has made my Monday morning. :)

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Blodeuedd,

}:-/ Can you rub that in just a little deeper? I'm not sure I feel bad enough yet! You bad, bad girl!

No, we can't go after Cecile because she's been good and hasn't made us feel any worse than we already feel!
BUT, I will keep my eye on her...since she's a youngin' at 33...

YOU...my little darlin' have gone to extremes to let us know just what we lost and without our permission.

I swear - the Gods yanked it from us without good reason! Now we might not have minded it soooo much if the Gods had told us there was a limit on the youth and admitted they would snatch it from us (in the middle of the night) no matter how good we were to our bodies...like you, I didn't drink, smoke or eat bad foods or too much of it...I spent 7 days a week at the gym and worked out about 1 1/2 to 2 hours a day when I was younger...

today, I still go to the gym, drink only a glass of wine at special times and I'm in front of a computer 16 hours a day, so I don't get any sun either.
WHAT HAPPENED?

Heck, I should have been a wild thing when I was young and pigged out...the results ARE THE SAME! OLD AGE, no matter how you look at it! OLD.

}:-? Yap, I'm sorry, Sweetie - I'm still hunting you down...it's that remark about 18 being rude!
I'm going to have to come after you...besides you got me lip! I'm bringing Dottie and Cecile with me so you better get baby face boyfriend out there to protect you!

BTW - just for your eyes only - Angie Fox has named me "Biker Witch Hawk" and in her next book she's got me packin' a blow torch...
Beward young thing, beward!
;-)
Hugs Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile,

Welcome home, hon! But we're jumping the next flight out to Finland! I'm on the hunt for Blodeuedd!
Did you see her 18 and rude remark!? OMG...I wish someone would think that about me!

I can see that wicked little grin of yours from here! LOL...you make me laugh! xoxo But you know Blodeuedd told on you...hummmm, so I'm gonna have to watch you...might even make you do the hunt to prove yourself worthy of falling into being old...33 isn't old! It really isn't. At 33 most people thought I was 23....so, you're on my boarderline. {8-) I got me eyes open.

OH NO...not the dog! Please not the doggy!

Oh BTW...I shipped out the book today...you should have it in about three days!

Hugs.

Hawk

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Vicki,

If I started your day out with a laugh, I'm please... that's what I had hoped for when I wrote this little blurb.

It's like they say...if you can't make fun of yourself...who can you make fun of?

Glad you enjoyed it.

Judi Fennell said...

OMG, that's hysterical!!!

And, you're 50!!!!??? Really??? I don't believe it.

Thanks for the award - I was on my way over here anyway right after I checked my email, and lo and behold there was an email from you. Great minds and all that...

btw, getting older is better than the alternative. That's what we have to keep reminding ourselves. I had a friend who passed at 34 - she would LOVE to have wrinkles and age spots...

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Judi darlin',

(((And, you're 50!!!!???)))

Judi -- I'm the oldest one here - I'm 53!
}:-(
and as you can tell, I'm not happy about it at all, but can't do anything about it!

(((Thanks for the award - I was on my way over here anyway right after I checked my email, and lo and behold there was an email from you. Great minds and all that...)))

LOL, you're welcome.

(((btw, getting older is better than the alternative.)))

Oh? Well, I don't know about THAT! I'm told we get to go to a really clean, bright white, very nice place called heaven. And you're not old there. And we've all got the perfect boob height, to kill for bodies, and eternal life...and NO HOUSE CLEANING, NO WASHING or IRONING, and we don't have to deal with fangs to live forever!

(((That's what we have to keep reminding ourselves.))

Oh...O.K.!!!! };-( but I'm told heaven is "The Place to be."


(((I had a friend who passed at 34 - she would LOVE to have wrinkles and age spots...)))

OMG, honey...I'm so sorry to hear that. That's really way too young to step to the other side.
My heart to you and blessed be to your friend.
xoxo
I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers forever.

Judi Fennell said...

Actually, you do make a good argument for The Other Side.

I, however, am willing to wait to get there. I plan to be 113 before I go. Why 113? Well, I want to make triple digits and 13 is my lucky number. My birthday is 213 (Feb 13) but I think two centuries is a little much.

Christine said...

Hahaha... I think my upper lip might be joining your upper lip for a margarita somewhere in the near future. I noticed mine is getting thinner. I'm 46 and heading to 47 in January 2010. Woohoo. I just noticed that when I power walk my entire leg above the knee looks like a rolling sea of wrinkles. HUH? What is that all about? I exercise a lot, but .... and I lost my belly button a few years ago. It used to be so cute and super deep and could probably hold a diamond. Now it is a frowning line.

Weight? Hmmmm I believe that when I am eighty years old I will be a walking watermelon with toothpick legs. I just lost 10 pounds just off my legs. Oh well.

I've decided I'll head kicking and screaming into the 50s, but when I am edging toward 65-70... man, watch out world. I will be such a cool lady.... looking good, but not botoxed, and I will be fearless.

Oh, all this aging gracefully stuff is well and good, but I did use my retouch feature in my iPhoto to erase some deep laugh lines before I posted my picture to the MAGGIE chairman... haha.

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Judi -

On the argument for the other side...I've had the death experience ... so I know what's there. {;-)

It's beautiful, it's our "REAL" life and there is nothing to fear...but truth...in how we lived our lives here.

I feel sorrow for those who chose to live here expressing things like jealousy, envy, hatred, vindictiveness and other evils...I wouldn't want to be them when they get there...there will be a heavy price waiting for them....by their own hand...and there...we can't lie, twist the words or stretch the reasons why...only the cord of our actions will stand up to the judgement...that's tough!

No, I don't waste the time I have here with bad emotions like that, because I DON'T want to face the judgement for it there...I saw the price paid for those emotions...it not for me.

And for those who don't know...and don't take heed...God help you...you're gonna need it.

OMG Darlin' I'm 3 days before you...xoxo.
Looking the way you look! OMG, you could do two centuries easy! Go for it!

OMG...13 is my lucky number too! What are those odds!? I've always had a good day on Friday the
13th. Friday is my fav day of the week...what's yours?

BTW - I'm loving WILD BLUE UNDER! What an awesome book! Can't wait to do a give away on it! Soon...
I know the girls are going to love it...

Hugs

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Christine,

(((I think my upper lip might be joining your upper lip for a margarita somewhere in the near future.)))

Blodeuedd says their making their way to Siberia. I think they're trying to ditch us. I got word someone had seen my lip in Dudinka Russia and Dotties waist is heading for the South of France. Ceciles boobs got a late start and have been taken to jail in Greenland...yap, sad it is...run away parts are filling the world.
LOL

(((I noticed mine is getting thinner.)))

OMG, that's how mine started before the escape!

(((I'm 46 and heading to 47in January 2010. Woohoo.)))
You look awesome!

(((I just noticed that when I power walk my entire leg above the knee looks like a rolling sea of wrinkles.)))

LOLROTG!

(((HUH? What is that all about?)))

I thought the same thing!

(((I exercise a lot, but ....)))

Yeah, me too. Doesn't do much now does it. The muscle just doesn't want to respond.


(((and I lost my belly button a few years ago. It used to be so cute and super deep and could probably hold a diamond.))

{8-0 oh, I hope you filled it! {:-)

(((Now it is a frowning line.)))

LOL, I guess you didn't fill it with the Diamond to keep it open. It was hinting you know! See what happens when you ignore the hints the body gives you.

(((Weight? Hmmmm I believe that when I am eighty years old I will be a walking watermelon with toothpick legs.))))

OMG...I spit me coffee when I read this...the image sent me into a laughing spell! You should have warned me...thank the Gods I didn't get the key board.

(((I just lost 10 pounds just off my legs.)))

OMG, tell me how! My legs could stand to drop some weight!

(((I've decided I'll head kicking and screaming into the 50s, but when I am edging toward 65-70... man, watch out world. I will be such a cool lady.... looking good, but not botoxed, and I will be fearless.)))

Awesome out look! I like it...shall I test it out for you since I'm heading that way before you?

(((Oh, all this aging gracefully stuff is well and good, but I did use my retouch feature in my iPhoto to erase some deep laugh lines before I posted my picture to the MAGGIE chairman... haha.)))

LOL - C you kill me!

Leontine said...

Does *gulp* anyone *gasp* have a *inhale* oxygon bottle *exhale* here *gasp* Pppfff, I am so the last one to join this party...and aging. I just celebrated my 33rd birthday...I actually discovered 10grey hairs in the last year 10!!!!!!! I need to dye my hair every 8-9 weeks now to masks it. Ever morning I need to stretch to get my body working when 5 years ago I hopped out of bed and just started the day. The calories cling to my hips, ok...ok, they always went strait to my hips but now I am 33 and worry more. Oh Oh...and kids suddenly saying Ma'am...huh, when did I become a: Ma'am???

And now I hear OPRAH in my head yelling: CELEBRATE YOUR AGE *headdesk*

Anyway, thank you for the very sweet award HAWK :)

Houston A.W. Knight said...

OMG - Leontine! You're still a baby...well, Blodeuedd is the baby so you're just a kid! 33!!!

OH for those days back...
I'd rule the world if I knew then what I know now.

WAIT! Just WAIT tell you hit 40 and you go to bed one innocent night only to wake and find you're in a totally different body...Yap, the body snatchers will come one day and leave you with....an older, used body!
And they hit again at 45, 51 and God help me.... I'll tell you the next hit when it hits me. So stay posted here...I turn 54 soon!

I'm almost afraid to go to sleep these days...Who knows what will be missing, wrinkled or sagging when I get up.

Hugs and thanks for making me laugh!

Wow thank you so much for the reward, and for stopping by my blog and commenting! I'll defiantly be adding your blog to my blog roll. Wild Blue Under sounds really good, an I love the cover! Is a pre-pub like an ARC?

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Danni,

You're welcome, hon!

I got it at the RWA Nationals ths year From Judi...it's an uncorrected advance copy...kind of like an arc. And Yes, it's an awesome story! I can't wait to do a give-a-away blog contest for it...

Thanks for adding me to your roll...I've already got you on mine! HUGs

Cecile said...

Okay, Leontine wants to talk about calories sticking... I was trying to stay away from that topic... but since it was brought up... WTH is up with that... I use to be able to kinda eat what I wanted in moderation and it would be okay... then one day, I wake up with thighs the size of Texas. Yea, everything is bigger in Texas, including my a$$. And how is that it use to take a couple of weeks of working out to lose weigh. Now it takes a year to lose 10 pounds! Whats up with that! And don't talk about giving exercising a break... oh yea, those nice muscles you thought you had and those pounds you thought you lost... they just get stored somewhere and wait... they sit and wait for you.. in the dark... watching... waiting... stalking... they wait for you to stopping exercising... and come back! Say hello to my little friend.... Yes, thunder thighs and Under Arm Hello Flap!!!! Oh and don't forget about drupe-y boobs!!!!
And gray hair... what is that... I am a natural color girl... (Highlighter in a bottle)!!!
This post has been fun Hawk!!! If I have friends like you to acquire my age with... Then bring it on!!!!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Cecile!

GAMG, you make me laugh!

So...do you want to talk about MENOPAUSE? That's even more fun than old age, and when they hit you together... }:-/

Like I said...God's going to let me live down here for a very LONG LONG time...he knows if he brings me home he's facing a very LONG LONG chat with me and like most men, he wants to avoid an angry Irish girl.

He knows I got a ton of issues I want to "chat up" with him! So, yeah, I'm thinkin' he's gonna leave me here for eternity.

That's why I need you girls in the sisterhood...I'll need company! :-)

(((This post has been fun Hawk!!!)))
Ah, I glad you liked it. I had fun too!

(((If I have friends like you to acquire my age with... Then bring it on!!!!)))
Ah, Hugs and kisses! It's awesome having friends like you girls. I adore you.

xoxo

Angie Fox said...

Hey, thanks for the award!

And your post is too funny. I'm in the stage where I'm finding new grays all the time. Thank goodness for highlights!

M.V.Freeman said...

I love some of these posts...so true!

I wonder why I fight my age so much? They say youth is lost on the young..for me it was.

Ok, I'm not ancient, and my body is being nice and I'm not really losing things (as I complained before--except really, my rear...I have too much, I saw were someone needed a lift, I'll donate!)

Still...I get grumpy about it. I envision myself being a snarky elderly woman with a cane and wicked wit. A far cry from my dear sweet grandmother who just passed at 103...and she truly was a good soul. (Now my other grandmother, a feisty Irish woman, stories are told that she'd sit in a chair-lost her legs--and keep a bag of potatoes near by to throw at you if she got angry. I bet that's what I end up like...LOL--with the legs I am hoping)

Hmmm. Decisions.

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Angie!

Ah, you're way too young to even worry about a few Gray hairs...you're beautiful...with skin like yours - no one will notice three gray hairs on you head!

Hugs Darlin'

Houston A.W. Knight said...

M.V.

Hey...I fight old age for only one reason...It doesn't feel good...and it seems no matter how hard we try to eat right, work out and all that...it still gets the upper hand.
Old age is just a wet blanket! I ain't down with that! }:-( Nope, not me! I'll fight it all the way!

LOL - tossin' the spuds huh? Well, you can be like granny...just keep the legs... it's more fun than tossin' spuds!

Liza said...

Hawk, thanks for the award! You are such a sweetie!

My muscle tone is gone and it is much harder to lose weight at 37. I can't eat anything I want without gaining weight anymore. Now I really think I just look at a cupcake and gain 3 pounds.
