I am getting old!!!! I just got done talking to the painters who are painting our house. I was probably telling them something profound and wise....ha ha. Anyway I walked back into the house to go back to sewing. I walked by a mirror and noticed I not only had one pair but two pairs of magnifying glasses on my head. Apparently the pair of contacts resting on my eyeballs are not enough. Did I mention that I am turning the BIG 50 this year. I could tell you that this is the first time that this has happened...but no. Usually it is one pair of sunglasses and one pair of magnifying glasses. When did I cross the line of forgetfulness. I not only have become my mother...I have become my grandmother!!!! Help!

My sister wrote this in response to the above.

Hey six eyes! I heard your funny story about becoming Grandma Ree as I was on my way to work this morning. Little did I know that I would do worse! When I looked in the mirror this morning I saw that my hair was sticking up in the back. So, I wet it and then stuck a long silver clip in the back to help hold it down as it dried. Well, I forgot to take it out, and went to a meeting that included several VPs. When I got back to my office an hour later, I discovered the clip was still in there...yikes!! (Luckily, only about half of the usual participants were there, due to vacation schedules.)

Can you tell we are truly sisters!


  1. You two are SEW funny, but Amy was really wearing "8" eyes ... 2 eye balls, 2 contacts, and 4 magnifying lenses!
