The dude with the tattoo on his neck may be going in for a procedure when he tries to find a real job.

I checked, a friend of mine checked out one of those websites that challenge you to guess whether they're fake or real. He scored pretty well if I do say so myself.

Yes, because there are some things that weight loss is just going to make worse especially as you get older. Do you really want that horrible skin hanging down from under your chin or your upper arms if you can have it removed?

Only if it was guaranteed to improve my sex life.

No, thank you. I'm happy with who I am and what I look like. Even without make-up...not to mention cosmetic surgery. I wouldn't want a surgical procedure based on "looks" alone. To each his (or her) own.

FloridaSunshine 5 years, 11 months ago thoughts, exactly. It's simply heartbreaking that there are people who don't realize how very special they are...just the way they sad.

FloridaSunshine 5 years, 11 months ago can always make me laugh (OUT LOUD, as my granddaughter says)...I'd love to respond with more, but am leaving for an adventure as I type this last word...perhaps later this evening...

tange, I realize you probably will not see this post...I did miss your trick-or-treat entirely...I regret that...I'm sure it was a hoot!! Gosh, that was four days ago? Can't keep up with the time when going thither, hither, yon, and everywhere in between! I'm back from my beloved mountains again...only problem, I left part of my heart in Ohio. That's always a down-side of loving...the "leaving" part of it all. But living isn't real without loving, is it?

Can hardly wait to see your Etchy Sketchy avatar. Please don't replace the Leo's so "you", somehow...the pictures are breath-taking via Hubble. Fascinating.

When I showed my daughter my avatar she was stunned...said, "It's YOU, Mom!! But for the exception that you're really real." We got the giggles about that...I told her I was thinking of replacing it with an exceptional picture of a dolphin. More giggles...

I've thought about having cosmetic surgery to at least minimize a big chicken pox scar I've had for 45 years. Mom said don't scratch it, but I did anyway because it itched. Thus the scar.
