Oh GOLLY this was fun!

Yeah... I made my family wait for dinner while I wore facial mask mixed with blue paint on my face and stuck my camera in the washer.

And I'd do it again. *grin*

And they wouldn't be surprised. *grin again*



I hope you like it. I know it won't do as well as the "pretty" shots... but ... I'm an old woman. We get our jollies where we can. *smile*

Oh! And... Fair Warning: Anyone who comments on any wrinkles or says anything even remotely resembling, "Gee! Where'd ya find that dog-ugly model?" gets an automatic ONE from me from this challenge forward.

I sacrificed my pride for this shot. *grin*

And... the sad thing is... the laundry never got done today. :)


Oh now... just got the pre-entry critique back from my very-helpful-on-every-entry-so-far-Hubby who said, "I don't know... you just don't look very happy..."


LOL! He was serious.

LOL AGAIN!


After twenty-four years of marriage, does he really thinks that I enthusiastically grab up the dirty underwear and dance my way to the laundry room singing, "Oh YES!! More dirty underwear!!"



LOL !


Gosh, I love that man!! :D

So a blue mudpack helps keep you looking so young! But, where's the curlers?? I'm sooo disappointed you're not wearing curlers. ;-)

Very funny. The looks like HDR which distracts a bit.
