I'm not a Southern Beauty,
I'm not an Eastern rose;
I'm just a lil' Western Gal
With freckles on her nose.

Warning: 10X Mirrors Are Evil, and Another Shoe Boat

I was happier before I bought a super-magnifying mirror.

I didn't know I had a moustache.

I drooped around all morning after making this discovery, then decided to stop being an ingrate about losing my looks. But of course the moustache was removed, with many an "Ow!" and some rather foul language, I'm afraid.

Maybe I'll change my name from Ol' Western Gal to Holly the Fur-Faced Cowgirl.

Here are a couple more shoe-boats. Maybe that was what the original play was supposed to be called: "Shoe Boat." It was about a whole bunch of people living on a giant paddlewheel pump in Victorian times, and having to relace it and polish the leather and stuff. But someone went and messed up the letters and they had to change the play to reflect the misspelling, and "Show Boat" was born.

    I'm a fur face, too, and I try and stay away from mirrors. Of course, now the fur gets lost in the wrinkles.

    Oh my...welcome to the land of fur faces! Once I turned 50, chin whiskers began to appear and a goatee under my bottom lip!
    Lord...what else will grow, and where???
    I've removed most mirrors in our home.
    They are NOT our friend.
    Love your shoe graphics of late.
    Sigh....who knew that aging would be such a hairy experience????
