This May Scare You Away Forever

MommiePie did it. Because Sweetney did it. Now I’m doing it. Probably not the best thing to do, since I think I’ve got a couple new readers. But it was fun. And hey, who’s not into baring all these days?


Au natural. No false pretenses. No pretenses at all.
I thank God though for the help in the sunlight reflecting off the counter uplighting my face.

Reagan saw that pictures were being taken and naturally wanted to play along.


Her idea. Notice how she’s cute even when making a funny face?

Ashlyn got upset when I had Reagan on my lap. That. should. not. happen. So, I let her play.
She’s looking at herself on the computer preview screen.

OH. and she stank.

So there you have me. Warts and all. Still want to be my friend? Even if not please print these out and place them in those corners of your house where the bugs like to creep and crawl. It will keep them away. I’m already doing it.

  1. I have seen you worse and you have seen me worse and we are still friends. What would make you think that your physical self would make me not your friend? I like to think that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. This means that no matter what happens to your physical self, fire, water, earth or wind, I will always know you, love you for your spiritual self. A face is jus a mask for your true Godly being.

    You will always be my friend.

    And your face is too pretty to scare bugs out of corners deary.

  2. OK, people. I’m outing Vicki here and giving you the real dope deal. She looks EXACTLY the same as she did 15 years ago, when we graduated high school. (And hey, Vicki–it was 15 years ago yesterday. Believe it or not.) She has aged better than a bottle of the finest wine, and is probably even trimmer now than she was then. I KNOW, right?

    Thus, my reason for hating her.

    Come on, I’m totally kidding. I love Vicki and have officially made myself president of her quickly growing fan club. When she’s famous I can say I knew her when.

  3. You really do look just like you did in high school! I’m supposed to be working on a self-portrait for a board I’m on…. just haven’t done it yet. Maybe I’ll use the photobooth option on my computer and make it really wonky! πŸ™‚

  4. Okay, I didn’t know you in high school, but I believe you look the same — you look mah-vel-ous!! I WISH I looked that good in the morning.

    And your “princesses” — could they BE any cuter??

  5. Rae, Leigh Anne & Tori: I know each of your addresses and your checks will be in the mail this afternoon…There’s no way I look the same as ten years ago. About six years ago this thing called a baby happened. Immediately after birth, like the next day, I looked in the mirror and noticed all these extra wrinkels around my eyes.

    Now I’m going to have to go around with a flashlight under my chin to shine light on my face to “erase” the wrinkles.

  6. You look the same. Ugly then ugly now. I ran out of paper printing off your pics to scare things away.

    Just Kidding! My sister makes alot of people upset. I mean look at me, I haven’t had any kids and I have gained 20lbs.

  7. To steal a line from a BBC Show: “Absolutely Fabulous!”

    And those girls are too adorable for words.

    Even so, I’m still with Patootie. I’m not doing it either. πŸ™‚

  8. I’m not playing either!!

    You know, if you look at the first picture where Reagan in coming in the room behind you it makes me think that is exactly what you must have looked like when you were her age! You are all adorable! πŸ™‚

  9. In the Philippines, and in places unreached by civilization, people can make money of your prints. Barter something people have not seen before for chicken or anything. Might get a something bigger like a goat. really. πŸ™‚
